Malaysia Airlines Joins Other Airlines On Board The IATA Travel Pass trial
Yesterday we reported how Ethiopian Airlines became the first airline to trial out and used the IATA travel pass. Joining the list of other airlines already on board is Malaysia Airlines.
Malaysia Airlines is one of the first global airlines involved in a trial on the International Air Transport Association Travel Pass, an app for keeping a digital record of your health.
This trial run will involve passengers on flights from Kuala Lumpur to London through the Malaysia Airlines mobile app from today until May 27, the airline said in a statement today.
“Passengers travelling on MH4 tomorrow morning will be able to download the new app to receive all the information they need in one simple, easy-to-navigate app,” the airline said.
In the beginning, only passengers who use mobile devices running the iOS system will be able to access the app.
Malaysia Airlines has made the app the next step in its journey to reintroduce safe and secure travel – by working together with governments, border authorities, and other stakeholders to make the dream a reality.
Taking technical and cultural factors into account, the airline’s team can work on a final redesigned digital travel health pass, making it more accessible and user-friendly for passengers, the airline said.
The IATA Travel Pass pilot app will allow the airline to improve flight accessibility for passengers while maintaining high compliance and security standards.
