Iberia is working with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) on the development of the digital health passport known as the IATA Travel Pass, and it will be the first airline to launch  it in Europe-Latin America routes, specifically in Uruguay, on its Madrid-Montevideo flights.

The IATA Travel Pass provides a consistent, predictable, and safe framework on a global basis with the dual aims of simplifying the travel experience and encouraging people to fly, while also streamlining the process of verifying the requisite health documents.

The new IATA Travel Pass is a smartphone app where the traveller can store, manage, and verify  the health documents required by the different countries, specifically certificates of COVID-19 test results, and soon vaccination certificates as well.

Passengers flying from Madrid to Montevideo on IB6011 tomorrow, Saturday 10 April will be the first to test this new app.
