Singapore to accept IATA Travel Pass

Singapore is Accepting IATA Travel Pass

Singapore is going to accept pre-departure Covid-19 PCR test results on the IATA Travel Pass app from May 1.

Passengers flying to the Asian destination will be able to use the Travel Pass to share their test results on check-in with their airline, as well as on arrival at Changi airport.

The initiative is part of an ongoing collaboration between the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the aviation trade body to enable seamless travel through digital certificates of Covid-19 tests.

Singapore health and border control authorities will accept the IATA Travel Pass following trials by Singapore Airlines.

IATA believes digital health certificates will be a key feature in air travel while safeguarding public health moving forward.

Till now more than 20 airlines have announced IATA Travel Pass trials.

New IATA director general Willie Walsh said: “Having the confidence of an aviation leader like Singapore accept IATA Travel Pass is hugely significant.

“Ongoing trials put us on track for IATA Travel Pass to be a critical tool for the industry’s restart by delivering verified travel health credentials to governments. And travellers can have complete confidence that their personal data is secure and under their own control.

“The success of our joint efforts will make IATA’s partnership with the government of Singapore a model for others to follow.”

CAAS director-general Kevin Shum added: “This latest collaboration with IATA demonstrates our shared commitment to drive the adoption of digital health certificates and restore international air travel.

“As we look to safely rebuild the Changi air hub, we will continue to explore other solutions that can provide similarly secure and verifiable means of sharing health certificates for safe international travel.”
