Tokyo airport trials CommonPass digital health passport
All Nippon Airways (ANA) has begun a trial of its CommonPass app showing a traveller’s COVID-19 status at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.
It’s part of efforts by the global travel industry to make cross-border travel easier and safer and is one of several digital health passports being trialled around the world.
The idea is to provide an accurate but fast way of ensuring passengers are safe to travel and prevent the spread of COVID-19 and potential variants.
Backed by the World Economic Forum, the app is one of a number of digital health passports being developed and certifies both coronavirus test results and vaccination status.
