IATA, Eurofins team up to boost testing options for Travel Pass app users


The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has agreed a partnership with clinical testing firm Eurofins to integrate its worldwide Covid-19 testing lab network into IATA Travel Pass.

Eurofins has 800 laboratories across 50 countries.

Eurofins laboratories will provide verified test results to travellers using the app.

Results are checked against the IATA Travel Pass registry of national entry requirements for each country.

“Verified testing is the immediate solution to give governments the confidence to open their borders to travellers. IATA Travel Pass aims to make it as simple as possible to locate certified laboratories and securely receive the test results that governments require,” said Willie Walsh, IATA’s Director General.

Adding the extensive Eurofins network to the initiative will help travellers more conveniently adjust their travel preparations to meet Covid-19 requirements,”
