Airlines talk about the possibility of only boarding passengers who prove they have been vaccinated for covid-19

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced that it is in the process of releasing a digital document that will support the reopening of borders.

The association of 290 companies responsible for more than 80% of the world's air traffic, announced the creation of the IATA Travel Pass, a document that will make it possible to share travelers' health information between governments, airlines and laboratories - which would include the results of RT- PCR currently required and, in the future, proof of vaccination for covid-19.

IATA wants to release the document in the first quarter of 2021. Through an app, the IATA Contactless Travel App, passengers will be able to create a “digital passport” to store test and vaccination certificates and share them with airlines and customs authorities. .

The document must establish is accompanied by a movement in the air sector that promises to cause controversy: the obligation for the passenger to present a proof of vaccination for covid-19 before boarding, as soon as the immunizer is available on a global scale.

The airline Qantas was the first to announce that it will refuse to board anyone who is abroad bound for Australia and cannot prove that they have taken the covid-19 vaccine.
