Ethiopian Airlines announced that it will test the IATA Travel Pass, a mobile mobile travel app, to improve the efficiency of testing or vaccine reviews and restart travel.
Upon restarting the trip, travelers will need accurate COVID-19 related information such as testing and vaccine requirements, which vary from country to country. The IATA Travel Pass initiative helps verify the authenticity of test information presented by travelers. This is important to ensure the safety of passengers while complying with the entry regulations of the countries. In the future, vaccination certificates for travel will also be administered.
Ethiopian Airlines has been digitized in all business areas to avoid physical contact and to combat the spread of the pandemic. Now we are starting this initiative that enables our passengers to enjoy an incomparable flight experience.
Regarding the verification of the IATA passport, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO of
Ethiopian Airlines said, “Digital technology is critical to solving many of the problems arising from the pandemic. We are pleased that we are offering our passengers new digital opportunities to completely and safely restart air traffic. Our customers enjoy an efficient, contactless and safer travel experience with their digital passport. As a Safety First Airline, we will be among the first to implement the IATA initiative for passports to make travel easier. The new initiative will build travelers’ confidence in travel, encourage governments to reopen their borders and
accelerates the restart of the industry. “
The passport helps with the creation of a digital passport, with obtaining test and vaccination certificates and checking that they are sufficient for your route, as well as exchanging test or vaccination certificates with airlines and authorities to make traveling easier. The digital travel app also avoids fraudulent documentation and makes air travel more convenient.
Alexandre de Juniac, Director General and CEO of IATA, said: “Ethiopian Airlines is helping to lay the foundation for a reconnected world in which health records – COVID-19 test results for vaccination certificates – will play a role. With the IATA Travel Pass, travelers can securely monitor verified health data and share it with airlines and authorities as may be required for the travel process. This will be vital if governments can reopen borders to travel. As an IATA Travel Pass test partner, Ethiopian Airline customers will be among the first to benefit from the benefits. “
