airBaltic is among the first airlines to trial IATA Travel pass
Latvian airline airBaltic is among the first airlines in the world to express its support for introduction of global International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Travel Pass solution for cross border travel. The IATA Travel Pass is a mobile app that will help passengers to manage their travel easily and securely in line with government requirements for COVID-19 tests or vaccines.
airBaltic has announced it will trial the IATA Travel Pass – a mobile travel and vaccination document solution on flights between Riga–Amsterdam and Riga–Oslo. The trial will run for three weeks and airBaltic customers on these routes will be invited to join the trial.
Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “Travelling today has become increasingly complex for the passengers. We appreciate IATA for introducing a global solution that is capable of helping to make the voyage smoother, while increasing reliability of the testing certification passengers often need to present to boarding agents.”
IATA Travel Pass is based on the passenger’s digital identity. It has been developed as four independent modules that can interact with each other. These modules cover registries for regulatory entry requirements and labs/test centres, verified testing/ vaccination certificate issuance and the possibility for passengers to share their tests results along their journey with involved authorities via their mobile device. These modules can work together as one complete end-to-end solution. Or they can be used separately to complement systems that others are building. IATA has developed these modules to ensure they are interoperable with other industry solutions as well as sustainable in the long-term.
