A Digital Travel Health Pass will be introduced by Malaysia Airlines (MAS) to enable safer air travel in a post-pandemic era by will integrating modules from the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Travel Pass.
This will enable the passengers to create a digital passport on the Malaysia Airlines mobile app, and it will take advantage of contactless technology options throughout the travel processes.
To make the process of travel requirements more straightforward and easy, passengers can make appointments with certified medical partners to carry out a COVID-19 RT-PCR test or include their COVID-19 vaccination certificate on their mobile phone.
Not only that; the health pass will also verify the carrier’s COVID-19 test or vaccination requirements, and share an "OK to Travel” status of passengers to the relevant authorities and the pass would instil confidence in passengers and provide access to an easy-to-navigate way to prepare for their upcoming travels.
Malaysia Airlines is now working closely with the relevant authorities to roll out the health pass and will be sharing more details soon.
