Air Canada is trialling a new digital solution available through its mobile app for customers to securely scan, upload and verify their COVID-19 test results.
This feature will allow travellers conveniently validate compliance with government health travel requirements prior to arriving at the airport.
There is no requirement to download an application, as a link to submit documents will appear on the Air Canada mobile app or mobile website during check-in.
Within 24 hours of departure, customers checking-in on mobile can securely submit their test results by scanning a QR code of the Centogene lab test result.
Customers will then receive a message verifying the test that will enable them to pass through the airport and board their flight without any further requirement to demonstrate the validity of their health documents
Customers must bring and retain their original documents for the duration of their journey.
The new feature is based on Amadeus Traveler ID, which automates document verification for travelers in order to minimise queues. Capabilities to manage test results from other labs and also vaccination records will be introduced. To further assist customers, the new solution also provides information about the government health entry requirements of the destination country. It is designed to be compatible with other health passport applications currently under development around the world.
