Since March 15, Air France passengers on flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and San Francisco as well as Los Angeles can test the ICC AOKpass health pass, in partnership with Groupe ADP, as well as the San Francisco International Airport and Los Angeles World Airports. The company is thus extending the experimentation of this solution carried by MedAire / International SOS. A first pilot phase began on March 11 on Air France flights from Paris-CDG to Pointe-à-Pitre and Fort-de-France. Both of these test phases are expected to last four weeks.
« The launch of this second large-scale testing program is a major step in the international recognition of ICC AOKpass as a trusted third party. From the laboratory as at every stage of the journey, ICC AOKpass allows to certify the negative status to COVID-19 of passengers, to the entire air transport chain, and to contribute to the health safety of flights », Declared Sébastien Bedu, responsible for the deployment of services at airports – MedAire, a subsidiary of International SOS.
At Paris CDG, users of the mobile application will benefit from a dedicated route at the airport, with a priority access when boarding and crossing borders on arrival, all materialized by specific signage. ” We are convinced that the ICC AOKpass health pass solution that we are testing with our partners on departure and arrival at Paris airports will facilitate the passage of passengers through our terminals, guaranteeing both greater fluidity and better safety in health checks », Declared Marc Houalla, Deputy Managing Director of Groupe ADP and Director of Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport.
« This new test program is an illustration of what could become the norm in terms of checking travel documents tomorrow, underlined Alain Bernard, Air France Chief Operating Officer. Collaboration between States, airlines and airport authorities is essential to find solutions that combine health security and fluidity of the travel experience. »
