KUALA LUMPUR, 15 JUNE 2021 – Malindo Air will commence with trials on the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Travel Pass – a mobile app to help passengers easily and securely manage their travel in line with any government requirements for COVID-19 testing or vaccine information.

The first selected passengers on one of our flights will trial the digital health credential soon to verify and share their pre-travel COVID-19 test status with Malindo Air. The trial is a step towards making travel more convenient, enabling travelers to manage COVID-19 related documentation digitally, safely, and seamlessly throughout the travel experience.

In the future, travelers may also be able to share vaccination certificates with authorities and airlines to facilitate travel. Capt Mushafiz Bin Mustafa Bakri, CEO of Malindo Air said, “We are very pleased to partner with IATA and become one of the region’s pioneers in trialing this long-awaited initiative in real time. The ability to process passengers’ COVID-19 relevant data for travel digitally will be the way forward. We will support the introduction of other initiatives to further enhance customer experience.”

The trial is being done on selected Malindo Air flights; and hope to eventually roll this out on all international routes. Eligible passengers are being personally invited to download the app and enroll for the digital travel pass ahead of their travels. In Kuala Lumpur, Malindo Air has partnered with selected Health Care labs which are authorized to securely send test results to passengers via the app.

“We are proud to partner with Malindo Air to trial IATA Travel Pass and demonstrate that digital health apps can securely, conveniently and efficiently help manage passenger travel health credentials. This is a vote of confidence and credibility for IATA Travel Pass and a positive step forward towards restarting international aviation. But for the tool to be as effective as possible we also need support from governments on the acceptance of Travel Pass at the borders,” said Nick Careen, IATA’s Senior Vice President Airport, Passenger, Cargo, Security.

Digital health certificates will be a key feature in air travel moving forward. Establishing trusted, secure solutions to verify the health credentials of travellers will be critical in facilitating smooth air travel and safeguarding public health. The IATA Travel Pass consists of four modules – a global registry of health requirements, a global registry of testing centres, a lab app to securely share test certificates with passengers, and a contactless travel app which enables passengers to create a digital passport and manage their travel documentation digitally.
