Global Airline Body Says Covid 'Travel Pass' App To Go Live In Weeks

Around 60,000 people have been registered to test the Covid 'travel pass' app system, said IATA (File)

Dubai:

The head of global airline body International Air Transport Association (IATA) said on Thursday a digital travel pass for COVID-19 test results and vaccine certifications would go live in the coming weeks following a testing phase.

The mobile application, which has been tested by some airline s, was originally designed to facilitate passenger screening at the airport check-in and aircraft boarding stages.

However, IATA says it has since modified the app for when passengers are also checked by immigration officers on arrival.

"(The) feedback (has) been very positive. We expect to go live out of the testing mode in the next couple of weeks," IATA Director General Willie Walsh told reporters during an online media briefing.

Around 60,000 people have been registered to test the system, he said.
