All Nippon Airways (ANA) is conducting a trial of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Travel Pass mobile app, in order to help customers seamlessly and securely manage their international travel to comply with the latest global COVID-19 health requirements.

IATA Travel Pass helps travellers to store and manage their verified certifications for COVID-19 tests or COVID-19 vaccines, an important step for governments that are likely to require either verified testing or vaccination proof as a condition of international travel during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

“With constant changes to international travel requirements adding to the complexity of travel, IATA Travel Pass enables passengers to easily verify whether they meet the COVID-19 testing requirements of their destination and share their test results with airlines and authorities in a secure way,” according to Yuji Hirako, President and CEO of ANA and Member of the Board of Governors of IATA.

“ANA is showing its industry leadership by becoming one of the first airlines to trial IATA Travel Pass. With the trial, ANA is helping global aviation to get back on its feet by giving Governments the confidence to safely re-open borders and re-connect people. IATA Travel Pass will help travelers to verify their compliance with COVID-19 requirements using health credentials securely linked to their identity in a digital passport. And this will put ANA and its customers on the front line of travel modernization even when this crisis is behind us,” added Alexandre de Juniac, Director General and CEO of IATA.

Given the potentially enormous scale of testing or vaccine verifications that will need to be securely managed, the IATA Travel Pass aims to be both more secure and efficient than the current paper process.
