Etihad And Emirates Launch Travel Pass


Etihad and Emirates have partnered with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to launch a travel pass for passengers.

The travel pass is a mobile app that will help passengers to update the government in fulfilling all the requirements for COVID-19 vaccines and tests.

This will help ease travel as all the information required will be available on the travel pass.

The travel pass is currently being trialled on certain flights from Abu Dhabi for the first quarter of 2021. 

In the future, the travel pass will also be extended to other destinations around the world.

Nick Careen, IATA's Senior Vice President, Airport, Passenger, Cargo and Security said, "The Etihad Airways partnership to launch the IATA Travel Pass is an important milestone on the road to meaningfully restarting international travel. Our aim is to give all governments the confidence to re-open borders to travellers based on the verified vaccine and testing data. The initial stage of the Etihad launch will focus on all four elements of the IATA Travel Pass modules, one of the first airlines in the world to do so."
