- Airline Officially Launches COVID Passport Ahead Of “Global Deployment”

“The experience gained helps prepare for the eventual global deployment of the Travel Pass”. Singapore Airlines has become the first carrier to officially launch a COVID passport, which will display the vaccination status and COVID test results of passengers.
The airline announced that its ‘digital health verification process’ is the first in the world to be modelled on the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Travel Pass framework. The airline said it had made the move to start trialling the process because it expects such ‘immunity passes’ to become the norm for all airline travel globally.
The company declared that COVID tests and vaccinations are sure to be “an integral part” of air travel for the foreseeable future and that certificates are the most efficient way to “validate a passenger’s health credentials.” The company proclaimed that the health pass will provide a “more seamless experience” for customers and will be a part of “the new normal.”
The airline noted that all passengers traveling from Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur to Singapore will be mandated to take COVID tests at specific clinics in those cities. Passengers will be issued either a digital or paper ‘health certificate’ with a QR code, according to the airline’s press release, which will be used as part of check ins and immigration control.
