This partnership will see Eurofins’ portfolio, comprising multiple test types and hundreds of Covid-19 sampling stations across the world, being made available through the IATA Travel Pass app.

Using the new application, travellers will be able to locate certified laboratories and securely receive the Covid-19 test results that governments require, as coronavirus testing has become a requirement for international travel.

The test results would be checked against the IATA Travel Pass registry of national entry requirements to generate an ‘OK to Travel’ status.

Passengers can share their status and digital test certificates with airport authorities and airlines using the new application.

The IATA Travel Pass, integrated with Eurofins’s global network, is planned to be trialled with the airlines piloting IATA Travel Pass across multiple regions over the coming weeks.

IATA director general Willie Walsh said: “Verified testing is the immediate solution to give governments the confidence to open their borders to travellers. IATA Travel Pass aims to make it as simple as possible for travellers to locate certified laboratories and securely receive the test results that governments require.

“Our partnership with Eurofins is another mark of quality for IATA Travel Pass, which is being built to the highest data security and privacy standards. Adding the extensive Eurofins network to the initiative will help travellers more conveniently adjust their travel preparations to meet the Covid-19 requirements.”

Eurofins’ board chairman and CEO Gilles Martin said: “We are delighted to be partnering with IATA and to support the IATA Travel Pass to provide the testing gold standard to ensure people can travel with security and confidence.”
