Thai Vietjet Becomes the first Airline in Thailand Successfully Integrated with ‘IATA Travel Pass’

(Bangkok, September 20, 2021) – Preparing for international flight service resumption & expansion and uplifting its passengers’ experience, Thai Vietjet has become the first airline in Thailand successfully integrated with ‘IATA Travel Pass’ by the International Air Transport Association.

“Thai Vietjet is proud to be the first airline in Thailand successfully integrated with the IATA Travel Pass, which can help passengers to travel internationally at ease. We do appreciate the International Air Transport Association for introducing this innovative solution to lead the way to resume international travel by developing the IATA Travel Pass to simplify the information procedures required by countries and authorities around the world into our airline system”, said Mr. Woranate Laprabang, Chief Executive Officer of Thai Vietjet.

With IATA Travel Pass passengers can simply verify the destination's travel requirements. After successfully installing the application, passengers can select one of the IATA COVID-19 test partner laboratories from the app to be tested for real-time RT-PCR. The test result will automatically display on the application upon its disclosure, allowing travelers to complete the airport check-in process in a secure and timely manner. Passengers can also check the processes and documents needed upon arrival, ensuring a smooth flight and pleasant journey ahead.

IATA Travel Pass has been developed to encourage safe travel between countries by standardizing health verification requirements in the form of a digital passport to enable passengers to easily and securely manage their verified COVID-19 test results on their phones. The information obtained through the IATA Travel Pass can be shared with border authorities who may require testing or proof of vaccination as a condition of international travel during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The information provided throughout the app is verified, providing passengers a secure way to manage health requirements.
