Airline Officially Launches COVID Passport Ahead Of “Global Deployment”
“The experience gained helps prepare for the eventual global deployment of the Travel Pass”
Singapore Airlines has become the first carrier to officially launch a COVID passport, which will display the vaccination status and COVID test results of passengers.
The airline announced that its ‘digital health verification process’ is the first in the world to be modelled on the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Travel Pass framework.
The airline said it had made the move to start trialling the process because it expects such ‘immunity passes’ to become the norm for all airline travel globally.
The company declared that COVID tests and vaccinations are sure to be “an integral part” of air travel for the foreseeable future and that certificates are the most efficient way to “validate a passenger’s health credentials.”
The company proclaimed that the health pass will provide a “more seamless experience” for customers and will be a part of “the new normal.”
The airline noted that all passengers traveling from Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur to Singapore will be mandated to take COVID tests at specific clinics in those cities.
Passengers will be issued either a digital or paper ‘health certificate’ with a QR code, according to the airline’s press release, which will be used as part of check ins and immigration control.
“Together we will demonstrate that people can return to travel with confidence that they are meeting all government Covid-19 entry requirements,” commented Nick Careen, IATA’s Senior Vice President for Airport, Passenger, and Cargo Security.
“This will help ensure that SIA’s customers will be among the first to benefit as governments re-open their borders with testing or vaccination requirements. And the experience gained through collaboration helps prepare for the eventual global deployment of the IATA Travel Pass,” Careen added.
As we reported last month, the IATA, the world’s largest air transport lobby group, expects its COVID travel pass app to be fully rolled out in the first months of 2021.
Another ‘COVID passport’ type system known as the CommonPass, sponsored by the World Economic Forum, is also under development.
A further ‘COVID passport’ app called the AOKpass from travel security firm International SOS is currently undergoing trials between Abu Dhabi and Pakistan.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
