– Vietjet will participate in trialling the
International Air Transport Association (IATA) Travel Pass, a mobile app to
manage digital health credentials in order to bring the best experiences to

vaccination.

It

certificates with passengers, and a contactless travel app that enables
passengers to create a digital passport and manage their travel documentation
digitally.

At
all times, travellers remain in control of their data with their privacy
protected as the IATA Travel Pass does not store any data centrally.

“Vietjet
is one of the first airlines in the world to trial IATA Travel Pass. Vietjet
strongly believes that with IATA Travel Pass, our passengers will get the best
experience on their upcoming travels,” said Vietjet Managing Director Dinh Viet

“We
look forward to working with Vietjet to trial IATA Travel Pass and demonstrate
that digital health apps can securely, conveniently and efficiently help manage
passenger travel health credentials. This is a positive step forward towards
restarting international aviation,” said Nick Careen, IATA’s Senior Vice
President for Airport, Passenger, Cargo, Security.

The
IATA Travel Pass team has been working closely with Vietjet – an IATA member,
