Air Astana will begin a trial of the IATA Travel Pass mobile app on flights between Nur-Sultan and Istanbul from September 2 to 16, 2021.

The IATA Travel Pass mobile app allows passengers to securely store COVID19 PCR test results from certified clinics on their mobile device so that they can be easily verified by airline, border staff and other official parties .

The app also contains information on certified national laboratories where passengers can perform PCR testing as well as relevant entry and departure requirements.

Basically, the IATA Travel Pass plays a vital role in reducing the risk of forgery of test results and vaccination certificates used to travel.

“The IATA Travel Pass will greatly contribute to the resumption of international air travel, as the app greatly simplifies the organization of flights,” said Alexander Neboga, vice president of Air Astana. “This process provides considerable convenience to passengers, reduces the time required for ground services and staff contact, as well as better identification of false PCR certificates and vaccinations.”

Air Astana is among the first 70 airlines in the world to support IATA initiatives to reopen international air travel and adopt IATA Travel Pass mobile app testing.

As the above video interview was taken over the internet, I would like to apologize for the fact that the audio and visual quality is not of the same HD / UHD quality as it would normally be. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before we run exclusive in-person video interviews again, but for now we have to make do with what we have. Thank you.
