Emirates first airline to implement IATA Travel Pass across six continents

Airbus scraps A380 superjumbo jet as sales slump, the last straw being Emirates pullout

Emirates has become the first airline to implement the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Travel Pass on six continents as it rolls out the digital health pass to customers at all its destinations.

The IATA Travel Pass app allows passengers to manage their Covid-19 travel documentation digitally – from receiving test results and vaccination certificates directly from authorised labs and test centres, to securely sharing these documents with authorities and airlines to facilitate travel.

Following pilot trails in April, Emirates has implemented the IATA Travel Pass across its global network

Following successful trials in April on select routes from its Dubai hub, Emirates gradually expanded the IATA Travel Pass pilot to customers on 12 routes in June and the airline has now signed a contract with IATA to implement the solution across its global network.

Currently available to Emirates customers travelling from 50 cities, the rollout across all 120+ Emirates destinations is expected to be completed by October.
