Over the December holiday travel season, Singapore Airlines announced it was introducing a new digital verification process for passengers’ coronavirus test results and vaccination status.
The airline is the first major carrier to launch a pilot program based on a framework from the International Air Transport Association.
The results will be returned with a QR code that can be printed on paper or saved to a digital wallet.
Airport staff members and immigration authorities may then scan the code to verify the authenticity of the results and confirm that travelers are eligible to enter the country, the airline said.
