For the frequent flyers
If you’re a frequent international traveler, these smartphone apps could come in handy.
Trusted by American Airlines and British Airways, VeriFLY can host proof of vaccination, negative lab tests, and certified health questionnaires all in-app.
Created by biometrics company Daon, the app uses biometric authentication and can be downloaded and used by anyone, regardless of location.
In October, British Airways signed a long-term agreement with Daon to cover its entire route network by the end of 2021.
IATA Travel Pass
A number of airlines have signed up to trial the IATA Travel Pass, including Emirates, Singapore Airlines, and Etihad Airways on select flights.
Developed by the International Air Transport Association, the pass includes two global registries – one for health requirements for a user’s upcoming trip and one for the location of testing and vaccination centers at their departure location.
Certified test and vaccination certificates are sent directly to the app, which verifies the results meet entry requirements.
