British Airways and IATA

British Airways (BA) has begun trialling the International Air Transport Association (IATA) digital travel pass, on flights from Heathrow to Geneva and Zurich.

The app can be downloaded onto a mobile device directly from the app store. Once downloaded, customers will create a secure account and will be presented with the entry requirements for their destination. BA’s customers can then book a Covid-19 test with an approved provider and the results will be automatically uploaded into the app by the laboratory.

The app then checks that a customer meets the entry requirements for their destination and will then notify the customer to let them know that they are ready to travel. The airline’s parent company, International Airlines Group (IAG), has been working closely with IATA to co-develop the app that is now being successfully piloted by other global airlines, including BA’s sister airline Iberia.

BA is also currently trialling digital travel app, VeriFLY, on routes to the US, France, Ireland, Barbados, Bahamas and Canada, as well as all inbound international flights.

The airline’s customers travelling to Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal can now also directly upload their negative Covid-19 test result and other documentation.
