Trial of IATA Travel Pass

Trial of IATA Travel Pass

On select international routes, ANA will conduct a trial of the IATA Travel Pass mobile app, which is being developed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to allow customers to store their COVID-19 test results within the app and help them seamlessly manage their international travel in the face of constantly changing international COVID-19 health requirements.

Customers who volunteer to participate in the trial will have the opportunity to use the IATA Travel Pass app to easily and securely verify whether their COVID-19 test result meets the health requirements of their destination. Through this trial, ANA will validate the testing and verification components of the IATA Travel Pass app as it seeks to provide customers with greater options to make the international travel process more seamless and secure.
