Emirates has become the latest airline to launch trials of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Travel Pass.

The mobile app is designed to help passengers easily and securely manage their travel in line with any government requirements for Covid-19 testing or vaccine information.

The first passengers traveling from Dubai to Barcelona on EK 185 today trialled the ‘digital passport’ to verify and share their pre-travel Covid-19 test status with Emirates.

The trials are a step towards making travel more convenient, enabling travelers to manage Covid-19 related documentation digitally, safely and seamlessly throughout the travel experience.

In the future, travelers will also be able to share vaccination certificates with authorities and airlines to facilitate travel.

Adel Al Redha, Emirates chief operating officer, said: “The ability to process passengers’ Covid-19 relevant data for travel digitally will be the way forward.

“We are pleased to have been pioneers and partner with IATA in trialling this initiative in real time and soon will be launching other initiatives to further enhance our customer experience.”

The trial is being carrier out on selected Emirates flights from Dubai to Barcelona and London Heathrow to Dubai; and will soon be expanded to include other routes.

Eligible passengers are being personally invited to download the app and enroll for the digital travel pass ahead of their travels.

In Dubai, Emirates has partnered with select Prime Health Care labs which are authorized to securely send test results to passengers via the app.
