Following a testing phase, the chief of global airline organisation IATA announced on Thursday that a digital travel pass for Covid-19 test results and vaccination certificates will go live in the coming weeks.
According to the International Air Transport Association, the ‘Travel Pass’ app will be available in a matter of weeks.
However, IATA claims that it has now updated the app to account for the fact that passengers are also scrutinized by immigration agents upon arrival.
“The response has been overwhelmingly good. We hope to exit testing mode in the next few weeks “Willie Walsh, Director General of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), said reporters at an online media briefing.
He further said, “around 60,000 people have been registered to test the system.”
