Etihad rolls out IATA Travel Pass on seven routes


Following successful trials, Etihad Airways has expanded the use of IATA Travel Pass on flights between Abu Dhabi and seven destinations.

The application will help passengers manage their travel health credentials easily.

It is now available for guests on all Etihad flights between Abu Dhabi and Bangkok, Barcelona, Geneva, Madrid, Milan, New York and Singapore.

The Pass, which offers the convenience of a one-stop platform for managing COVID-19 documentation, can be accessed by downloading the IATA Travel Pass app for Android or iOS.

Passengers can add their Etihad Airways travel itinerary, view their travel requirements, securely share their PCR test results and also upload vaccination certificates.

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 travellers around the world will be able to upload their government-issued COVID vaccine certificates to facilitate seamless travel.

The airline is continuing to work closely with IATA to roll out the digital travel pass to more cities across its route network.
