Joint Trial Project of "IATA Travel Pass" and Azerbaijan Airlines for digital certification of COVID-19 test results

AZAL, together with the International Air Transport Organization (IATA), is launching a trial project “IATA Travel Pass” in preparation for the adoption of digital COVID-19 credential apps.

What are Digital Certificate Apps?

Digital Health Credential apps make possible for passengers to view and manage their COVID-19 test results from IATA registered health care agencies on their smartphones or other devices. It is also possible to check the immigration and quarantine requirements of the destination country via TIMATIC.

Upon check in at the airport, the app can be used to show proof of COVID-19 test results.

Features of the IATA Travel Pass

The app has been developed by IATA (the International Air Transport Association), an organization to which most of the world's airlines are members. It is a digital certificate app being tested and introduced with the aim of putting it into practical use with the highest information security standards and in accordance with global regulations.

AZAL is participating in this trial along with many other airlines around the world; and we are honored to announce the IATA Travel Pass will be available on AZAL’s selected international routes for a limited time.

Passengers will start by registering their passport. Then they can safely manage their COVID-19 test results in the app. The results can be checked in advance, and if the result is negative and after verification of the requirements of the country of destination, “OK to Travel” will be displayed on the screen.

By showing the “OK to Travel” screen at the check-in counter, passengers will be able to complete their check-in procedure smoothly.*

Also, 250 miles will be accumulated to those customers using the IATA Travel Pass mobile app during this period; for this passengers should fill out a questionnaire that will be sent after the trip.

Please ensure you also have your negative result certificate in the required format (e.g. printed)

Step 2

  • Take a profile photo and register your passport information.
  • For the profile photo, you will be required for a still image and also a movie to capture facial motions.
  • To register passport information, you need to take a photo of the machine-readable area of your passport (found at the bottom of the page with your photo).

 

Step 3

Select “Your Flights” menu from the home screen and register your flight information. After you enter your departure date and airline, a list of flights is displayed.

In addition, by registering flight information, you can check the travel requirements for your destination.

Step 4

Passengers must make their own booking for the COVID-19 PCR test at one of the designated labs. When visiting the laboratory, you must also take your original passport with you. Passengers must also inform the laboratory agent that they are participating in a trial version of the IATA Travel Pass.

Select “Connect” menu from the home screen, activate your device's camera in the mobile app and scan the 2D/3D barcode presented by the healthcare institution. Verify your identity by entered your name and passport number.

By sharing data, your test results will be received by your IATA Travel Pass app.

Note that PCR test results are not automatically linked to the IATA Travel Pass app without completing the above steps.

Once your test results have been delivered from your healthcare institution your COVID-19 Travel Pass will be available from the “Your Flights” menu. Your travel preparations will be complete if a green screen with a tick mark appears with your name, passport number, flight information and PCR test results.

If instead a red screen with a cross appears, check the Travel Requirements at the bottom of the screen for any missing items.

Please show this screen to the airport staff on the day of your departure. Do not forget to also take all the documents necessary for the trip, as well as the printed result of the test for COVID-19 since they may be asked by border control officers.
