Join IATA Travel Pass trial on Helsinki-London route on 14 July - 11 August
Finnair trials a digital IATA Travel Pass to make your future travel smoother. If you start your journey from Helsinki and your final destination is London Heathrow or vice versa, you may participate in our trial.
To make your future travels smoother, we at Finnair are trialling IATA Travel Pass, an easy-to-use mobile app under development to enable you to manage and store your coronavirus related certificates.
We would love to hear your feedback and invite you to join the trial to be able to develop the app further. You can trial the new solution on our flights between Helsinki and London in both directions between 14 July - 11 August 2021.

It is good to know that IATA Travel Pass is still under development with limited features in use during the trial.
This is how you join the trial:
- Download the free of charge IATA Travel pass app via Apple Store or Google Play. Log in to the app. You need this code to log in: 190 368 (Apple) and 787 350 (Android).
- Create a digital identity and a digital passport for yourself: take a selfie with your phone, complete a liveness test as instructed by the phone and scan the data on the two lines at the bottom of the passport photo page and the data-chip on the passport, when available, as prompted by the phone.
- The IATA Travel Pass verifies that the passport belongs to the person in front of the phone and that the passport is genuine. Your verified digital credential is then stored on your phone, and you are ready to use your digital passport.
- Select your Finnair flight from the Your flights menu.
- You will then see the travel requirements for your journey.
- Next ensure you get the required coronavirus related certificates for your journey. You can participate the trial if you have
A negative coronavirus test result certificate from one of the participating laboratories. When visiting the laboratory, please let them know you are participating the IATA Travel Pass trial. Also, take your passport with you. You will receive your test results securely to the app when they are ready.

Your vaccination certificate will become available in IATA Travel Pass via EU Digital Covid Certificate or UK NHS Covid Pass later. We at Finnair are planning to trial this option when available.
- IATA Travel Pass checks your certificate against your journey requirements. The app displays OK to travel screen when you are good to go.
- Please show the IATA Travel Pass OK to travel screen to our ground crew at the airport check-in area, and you will receive your boarding pass. You don’t need IATA Travel Pass when boarding the aircraft but please prepare to show your other travel documents including the completed Passenger Locator Form when travelling to the UK. As border officials may require you to show your travel documents in paper format, including the corona related certificates, please bring them with you when you travel.
- After your journey, we invite to join a survey to collect feedback on IATA Travel Pass. We hope you have a few minutes to answer, as your feedback is very valuable for us to further develop the solution.
All the data in your IATA Travel Pass is saved to your mobile phone, and it will not be saved in a central data base or any Finnair data base. This means only you can access the data and choose to show it to us at the airport. More information is available in the app under Privacy.
What is the EU covid certificate and how to I get it?
To be rolled out in July in Finland, the EU covid certificate consists of three different certificates: a coronavirus vaccination certificate, a certificate of a negative coronavirus test result and a certificate of recovery from coronavirus. You can use the certificate, for example, during border crossings in the EU countries. You can access your EU covid certificate through My Kanta Pages. Read more here.
