Emirates became the first airline to implement the International Air Transport Association (IATA) travel pass on six continents as it rolls out the digital health pass to customers at all of its destinations.
The IATA Travel Pass app allows passengers to digitally manage their Covid-19 travel documents – from receiving test results and vaccination certificates directly from authorized laboratories and test centers, to securely sharing these documents with authorities and airlines to facilitate travel.
After successful testing in April on selected routes from its Dubai hub, Emirates gradually extended the IATA Travel Pass pilot project to customers on 12 routes in June and the airline has now signed a contract with IATA to implement the solution. on its global network.
Currently available to Emirates customers traveling from 50 cities, rollout to the 120+ Emirates destinations is expected to be completed by October.
