Top News Etihad rolls out IATA Travel Pass to seven cities By TTG Asia / Posted on 29 July, 2021 14:45 Etihad Airways has expanded the usage of IATA Travel Pass to include flights between Abu Dhabi and seven destinations across its network. The seven destinations are Bangkok, Singapore, Barcelona, Geneva, Madrid, Milan, and New York. IATA Travel Pass offers the convenience of a one-stop platform for managing Covid-19 documentation. Etihad Airways was one of the first airlines globally to begin testing IATA Travel Pass, in support of a global, standardised solution for travellers to validate their documents and navigate Covid-19 travel requirements. Mohammad Al Bulooki, COO at Etihad Aviation Group, said: “The feedback from the IATA Travel Pass trial has been positive, with Etihad’s guests appreciating its ease-of-use and data security. Etihad is pleased to now make IATA Travel Pass available on flights to and from seven major global cities, providing more guests with the option of simplifying their journey and airport experience.” Currently, the app is able to accept EU Digital Covid Certificates issued by all 27 member states of the European Union plus Switzerland, Iceland, Norway and Lichtenstein, as well as vaccine certificates from Singapore and Qatar. As vaccines continue to roll out globally, more and more travellers around the world will be able to upload their government issued Covid vaccine certificates to the app to facilitate seamless travel. The airline said that it continues to work closely with IATA to progressively roll out the digital travel pass to more cities across its route network.
