Emirates is rolling out the IATA Travel Pass worldwide
Emirates will roll out the IATA Travel Pass to all its destinations on six continents after successful trials launched in April. The airline expects the deployment to be complete by October.
Adel Al Redha, Chief Operating Officer of Emirates, said: “Emirates continues to invest in technology and solutions, such as IATA Travel Pass, so that we can deliver seamless travel and contactless experiences to our customers. while allowing our airport teams to efficiently manage document checks. and in compliance with regulatory requirements.
Nick Careen, IATA Senior Vice President Operations, Safety and Security, said: “Emirates’ implementation of the IATA Travel Pass across its global network reinforces its role as a key tool in managing the complex myriad of health documents required for travel. By providing passengers with a one-stop-shop to demystify, manage and process these credentials through a secure automated process, they can arrive at the airport ready to fly using automated processes. This will avoid queues and congestion for document checks – to the benefit of travellers, airlines, airports and governments.
IATA Travel Pass gives travelers access to over 1,500 Covid-19 testing labs while EU and UK citizens can also register their vaccine certificate on the app.
