Following the conclusion of successful IATA Travel Pass trials in November 2021, Corendon Airlines announced that it will implement the app on select flights across its network.

Corendon Airlines is the first airline in Europe to fully integrate IATA Travel Pass on its flights. IATA Travel Pass was developed by IATA to offer travelers a safe and secure way to manage their COVID-19 test and vaccination certificates for travel and check that they have met all health requirements for their destination.

Passengers can store all their test results and vaccination documents related to COVID-19 on IATA Travel Pass and submit these documents electronically before their journey. This will help reduce queuing and congestion for document checks.

IATA Travel Pass is available on certain Corendon Airlines flights and can be downloaded free of charge from Apple and Android app stores.

For Corendon Airlines, the application is available to use on flights departing from Antalya to Nuremberg, Hannover, Munich, Cologne and Dusseldorf or departing from these cities to Antalya. For Corendon Airlines Europe, IATA Travel Pass is applicable to the flights departing from Dusseldorf to Lanzarote, Gran Canaria Las Palmas, Fuerteventura and Tenerife or vice versa.

Corendon Airlines aims to increase the number of destinations where IATA Travel Pass app can be used in due course

Olcay Türker, CFO, Corendon Airlines said: “We believe that IATA Travel Pass is highly efficient for passengers as well as for airlines and airports. The application allows passengers to keep their COVID-related documents, such as test results, vaccination or recovery documents, in a digital platform all together which makes traveling easier and safer in terms of privacy and protection of personal data. We are very happy to be the first airline in Europe to successfully complete the trial of IATA Travel Pass.”

Nick Careen, IATA Senior Vice President Operations, Safety and Security said: “It’s great to see IATA Travel Pass becoming operational across the world. We congratulate Corendon Airlines on becoming the first airline in Europe to join a growing list of carriers implementing the app. Digital solutions are required to manage the complex mess of travel health credentials that governments require and IATA Travel Pass has proven itself to be an effective tool. The app also unlocks the potential for convenient contactless travel processes from check-in to boarding in the future.”
