The International Air Transport Association (IATA), which brings together some 300 airlines from all over the world, including Brazilian airlines, has announced that its DLT platform, called Travel Pass, is operational and therefore available to its members
Goal, TAM and Blue must use a blockchain passport for certification of Covid-19NOTTICES tests
Brazil’s largest airlines, Gol, Tam and Azul, may soon use a blockchain platform for passenger certification to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
This is because the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which brings together about 300 airlines from around the world, including Brazilian airlines, has announced that its DLT platform, called Travel Pass, is operational and therefore available to its members.

Thus, according to IATA, the Travel Pass digitally Bitcoin Revolution review stores the health information of each passenger, facilitating the verification of data at the time of boarding, including coronavirus tests, requested by many countries at the time of boarding and vaccines .
According to an official statement, the organization stresses that although the data is managed by each user, the platform connects to government agencies and health centres that issue tests to detect VOCID-19, ensuring the authenticity of the information.
Alan Murray Hayde, head of security products at IATA, explained that the platform consists of four independent components which interact with each other.

In the first module passengers can consult what are the mandatory requirements for Covid-19 required by a country or territory.
With this information, passengers can then consult the authorised centres in their country that meet the requirements established in their destination countries or cities. In the third part, once the place for testing has been selected, the data are sent to the platform enabling the vaccination certificate or test result.

This way, in the last module the passenger can issue a digital passport proving that he is fit for the rules of that territory.
“Once the passenger has a digital version of the passport on the phone, he will go to the lab and read a QR code, which creates a link between the passport data and the lab, to verify the person’s identity,” Murray Hayden said.
As the Cointelegraph showed, four major airlines have signed up for the programme so far: Singapore Airlines and British Airways plan to start the first test phase as early as February, while Etihad and Emirates currently plan a launch date in April.
“This is the beauty of the technology we are using; it puts the passenger in complete control of their data. There is no central database and nobody can hack it. The passenger has their data and shares it with the airline. It is so powerful and probably one of the first examples of blockchain technology being implemented in a way that benefits people,” Hayden said.
Hayden said with the airline he now has all the passenger details and they are 100% sure that the passenger is safe to fly.
