Airports Council International (ACI) World has welcomed the publication of the Good Health Pass Collaborative Interoperability Blueprint.
Commenting on the publication, ACI World Director General Luis Felipe de Oliveira, said:
“As we continue to navigate recovery, cooperation on global standards towards a global harmonization of processes and the use of vaccines and tests together will help get the industry back on track. Collaboration is the best approach as aviation is a global business, and we need to have a global perspective.
“We will continue to work to further initiatives like the Good Health Pass Collaborative which is a key development in the proliferation of digital health passes which will promote the safe and swift reopening of borders. As the blueprint sets out, success will be reliant on global interoperability and a safe, reliable system that protects the data of users and has benefits beyond the aviation industry.”
He also added: “For a system of interoperable digital health passes to have the best chance of success, governments need to recognise the health status documentation which is already in circulation, such as more than a billion vaccine certificates, proofs of recovery, and evidence of test results.”
“The stakes are high. If governments can get behind initiatives like the Good Health Pass Collaborative, they have the potential to provide a significant boost to the industry, protecting millions of jobs, rebuilding critical global connectivity, and helping aviation drive a global economic recovery.”
