by Kaia Hicks
Pegasus Airlines will become one of the first airlines to adopt Iata’s Travel Pass health verification digital app on international routes.
The Turkish carrier has successfully completed a trial period for the app and entered into an agreement with Iata to go live.
Travel Pass allows guests to digitally store and manage their health-related documents required for international travel. Pegasus guests can download the app free of charge.
The Iata Travel pass combines the verification of health information in a single digital app while allowing guests to securely and easily verify that they meet the COVID-19-related country entry requirements.
User data is stored on the mobile phones of the user and not on any central database to protect the privacy of its users due to the sensitive nature of health-related data.
Pegasus Airlines was launched in 1990, and adopted a low-cost business model in 2005, upon its acquisition by ESAS Holding.
