Iberia is working with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) on the development of the digital health passport known as the IATA Travel Pass, and it will be the first airline to launch it in Europe-Latin America routes, specifically in Uruguay, on its Madrid-Montevideo flights.
The IATA Travel Pass provides a consistent, predictable, and safe framework on a global basis with the dual aims of simplifying the travel experience and encouraging people to fly, while also streamlining the process of verifying the requisite health documents.
The new IATA Travel Pass is a smartphone app where the traveller can store, manage, and verify the health documents required by the different countries, specifically certificates of Covid-19 test results, and soon vaccination certificates as well.
Passengers who flew Madrid to Montevideo on IB6011 April 10 were the first to test this new app. Iberia has sent them all an email message to invite them to obtain the IATA Travel Pass by following these instructions on the iberia.com website:
Gabriel Perdiguero, customers, transformation, and systems director, Iberia, commented, “With safety our key consideration, we are counting on technology to reopen borders, encourage travel, and return to normal as quickly as possible. We are certain that the digital health passport will play a key role in this endeavour, and is the right path to facilitate the movement of people giving customers a simpler, faster, and more contactless airport experience. We want to accompany our customers in the digital transformation Iberia is experiencing, giving them new channels for interaction alongside traditional ones, and providing all possible support from the moment of booking to the end of their journey.”
