IATA and Copa Airlines launch trial for IATA Travel Pass

    IATA partnered (03-Feb-2021) with the Government of Panama and Copa Airlines to trial the IATA Travel Pass, a mobile app to help passengers manage their travel in line with government requirements for COVID-19 testing or vaccine information. Passengers will be able to create a digital passport, allowing passengers to match their travel itineraries with the COVID-19 health requirements of their destination and validate that they are in compliance with these. The initial trial phase is expected to begin in Mar-2021 on select Copa routes from Panama City. IATA Travel Pass will also include a registry of testing and eventually vaccination centres – making it more convenient for passengers to find testing facilities and labs at their departure location which meet the standards for testing and vaccination requirements of their destination. The platform will also allow labs and test centres to send test results or vaccination certificates to passengers. [more – original PR]
