Pegasus goes live with IATA Travel Pass

Pegasus Airlines is now live with the IATA Travel Pass app.

The Turkish airline has completed a successful trial period and is now using the app live on international routes. Pegasus is one of the first IATA member airlines in the world to go live with the app.

The IATA Travel Pass is a mobile app that allows passengers to digitally store and manage their health-related documents required for international travel, such as their COVID-19 test results and vaccine certificates.

It means passengers can verify they meet COVID-19-related country entry requirements.

Pegasus passengers can use the app while travelling to many countries on Pegasus’ international flight network. They can download the IATA Travel Pass app Apple Store and Google Play 

Emirates was the first airline to implement the IATA Travel Pass solution across its global network in September 2021.

Digital Health Apps

Passengers will probably need to prove they have had a vaccine or at least a recent positive test before entering many countries.

A lot of work is going on to provide passengers a way to provide this information. There are a number of number of digital apps. Some in use, some in trial, some in development.

The IATA Travel Pass is one of the leading apps.

The main ones so far are:
