Flying the London-Helsinki route this summer? Participate in the IATA Travel Pass trial!
This summer, Finnair is trialling IATA Travel Pass, an easy-to-use mobile app for managing coronavirus related travel documents. We are trialling the solution on our flights between Helsinki and London in both directions 14 July - 11 August 2021.
IATA Travel Pass is a new mobile application that makes it easier to manage coronavirus related travel documents. The app tells you accurate information on travel requirements for journeys. It checks your certificates against the requirements of your destination and lets you know whether you’re okay to travel.
With the app, you receive, store and manage your verified coronavirus certificates securely. Going forward, you can go through the airport and board the aircraft quickly and easily without extra travel document hassle. The app makes travelling smoother than with the current process, where you have to carry various documents.
We are now trialling the app to collect feedback from our customers and personnel. This feedback will help in the app development and planning of our next steps. The solution is still under development and only some of its upcoming features will be available in the trial phase.
Finnair explores also other digital solutions to ease travelling and coronavirus related travel document management. We decide on introducing these solutions for larger use later this year.
