British Airways announced today that it will begin testing a new travel health app, VeriFLY
British Airways announced on Friday that it will begin testing a new travel health app, VeriFLY , with customers who can travel between London and the United States from 4 February.
The new digital travel passport, which can be downloaded to a mobile device, verifies that customers meet the entry requirements to their destination, providing digital verification of health documents and confirming eligibility.
However, use of the VeriFLY app will be optional and customers will still be able to demonstrate that they meet US entry requirements at the time of billing.
Customers traveling from London
The test follows the recent announcement that American Airlines, a British Airways business partner , now allows all customers to use VeriFLY when traveling to the United States from all international destinations. American Airlines was the first airline to use VeriFLY in November for certain routes.
British Airways is the first UK airline to test the use of a mobile health passport for customers traveling from London . It will also be the only airline outside of the United States to offer its customers the opportunity to try VeriFLY.
“Although flights are currently restricted, it is essential that we do all we can to help our customers navigate the complexities of changing travel requirements when the world reopens,” said the airline’s CEO Sean Doyle.
