IATA Travel Pass To Be Available Across Global Network

Dubai Media Office

Emirates has announced that it is the first airline to implement the IATA Travel Pass across six continents.

Trials for the pass started in April for selected routes and expanded to 12 routes in June.

Emirates has now signed a contract to use the travel pass across its global network which is now available to 50 cities and will include all the destinations by October.

The travel pass will help provide passengers with all their testing, vaccination and government requirements for travel in one place, digitally.

A new feature will be added where customers will be able to share digital documents before they reach the airport and it will be reflected on the Emirates check-in systems for a smooth experience.

Nick Careen, IATA Senior Vice President Operations, Safety and Security said, "Emirates implementation of IATA Travel Pass across its global network cements its role as a key tool in managing the complex myriad of health credentials 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 queuing and congestion for document checks - to the benefit of travellers, airlines, airports and governments."
