The IBM Digital Health Pass has been integrated into Amadeus’ Traveler ID for Safe Travel mobile health verification solution, enabling passengers to load and validate their Covid-19-related health and vaccination credentials during online flight check-in, according to the companies.
During the online check-in process, Traveler ID for Safe Travel checks the requirements for that particular trip against destination country regulations and prompts passengers to generate a Covid-19 digital credential by scanning paper vaccination or negative test documents or uploading a digital version. These credentials then are authenticated by IBM Digital Health Pass using data encryption and blockchain, which ensures no personal health information is stored by the airline, IBM or Amadeus. The airline receives only a status confirming the passenger is ready to fly, Amadeus said.
Launched earlier this year, Traveler ID for Safe Travel also integrates with other digital health passports including CommonPass and the ICC AOKpass, according to Amadeus.
