The development of this app, which should also provide travelers with useful information, is currently in the final phase, the IATA announced during the annual meeting on Monday afternoon. The app will be rolled out from the beginning of next year. First, it is tested at the airlines of IAG.
Whether this digital test and vaccination passport will be a success depends on whether airlines and governments cooperate en masse. That should become clear next year.
Earlier today, Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said that only vaccinated passengers will be welcome on the international flights of the Australian company. In an interview, the CEO indicated that many other airlines will apply a similar policy.
The IATA Travel Pass makes it easy to check whether passengers have been vaccinated.
