Vietnam Airlines to trial IATA Travel Pass on 2 flights from Narita

1 Comment

Vietnam Airlines has confirmed that it will commence its IATA Travel Pass trial on two flights numbered VN301 from Narita Airport to Da Nang on July 15 and 23.

Passengers wishing to participate can register on Vietnam Airlines' website at least three days before departure date, download the IATA Travel Pass application to their mobile phones, create their digital passport and enter flight information.

Passengers need to be over 18 years of age and have a negative COVID-19 result from any eligible clinic based on the IATA lab registry.

During the trial, passengers will still have to present hardcopy test results at the request of authorities in the destination country.

At the final step of the testing process, passengers need to complete a survey to help improve the customer experience.

The first 30 passengers who complete the survey on Vietnam Airlines' IATA Travel Pass test flights in July will receive a Titanium Lotusmile membership card.

Currently, more than 70 airlines are trialing or have committed to trial the IATA Travel Pass. The IATA Travel Pass enables passengers to share the test and vaccination certificates and securely manage their travel in line with government requirements. This will be important for governments that are likely to require either verified testing or vaccination proof as a condition of international travel during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Crucially, the IATA Travel Pass reduces the huge risks associated with passengers using fake test results and vaccination certificates.
