The new standard will allow passengers to digitally obtain all necessary pre-travel authorisations directly from governments.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA ) has developed new industry standards to bring the ‘Ready to Fly ’ option for passengers at airports closer to reality.
IATA’s new ‘Recommended Practice on Digitalization of Admissibility’ will allow passengers to digitally prove their admissibility to an international destination without stopping at the check-in desk or boarding gate for document checks.
As part of the One ID initiative, air carriers are working with IATA to digitalise the passenger experience at airports using contactless biometric-enabled processes.
The new standard will help in the realisation of One ID through a system that will allow passengers to digitally obtain all necessary pre-travel authorisations directly from governments before their trip.
