Cathay Pacific strongly supports the introduction of digital health platforms that securely validate compliance with the health-related entry requirements set by different governments, including negative COVID-19 tests and vaccination, enabling travellers to go overseas with reassurance and convenience.
Cathay Pacific is very proud to have collaborated with the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK), The Commons Project and Prenetics on the trial. This followed a previous successful trial conducted in October last year between Hong Kong and Singapore with the same partners. Cathay Pacific is also a member of the IATA Travel Pass Advisory Group.
Cathay Pacific General Manager Customer Experience and Design Vivian Lo said: “International travel remains suppressed due to various travel restraints around the world. For borders to reopen fully once again, travellers may need to provide COVID-19 test and vaccination records that meet government requirements in order to travel.
“We believe that digital travel passes will play an important role in helping facilitate the safe, progressive return of international travel. We have therefore been collaborating with our industry partners to pursue the adoption of universally recognised digital travel passes as we prepare to welcome more passengers onboard our flights. A very big thank you to our partners who have helped to make the trials a success.”
