Emirates ramps up IATA Travel Pass implementation

Emirates plans to significantly expand usage of the IATA Travel Pass in the coming weeks.

The solution is available to customers flying to 10 cities and it plans to extend it to all routes across its network soon.

In addition, Emirates has also partnered with Alhosn, the official UAE app for Covid-19 related contact tracing and health documentation.

From July, Emirates will integrate the Alhosn app with its check-in systems, expanding on its existing integration with the Dubai Health Authority (DHA).

This gives customers travelling from the UAE quick access to and verification of Covid-19 medical records, regardless of where in the UAE they had completed their vaccinations or Covid tests.

Customers travelling to London, Barcelona, Madrid, Istanbul, New York JFK, Moscow, Frankfurt, Charles De Gaulle, and Amsterdam can now use IATA Travel Pass to access the latest Covid-19 related travel information including the location of PCR test labs, and manage their PCR test results.

Adel Al Redha, Emirates' Chief Operating Officer said: "Over the past months, we have really accelerated our biometric, contactless and digital travel verification projects to provide our customers with even greater convenience."

The IATA Travel Pass is a digital solution providing governments, airlines, labs and passengers with up-to-date information on Covid-19 related regulations, and facilitate secure flow of necessary data securely.
