The International Airline Trade Group is calling for simplified COVID-19 rules to revitalize travel

“In particular, IATA called on governments to focus on three key areas: 1. Simplified health protocols; 2. Digital solutions for processing health data [and] 3. COVID-19 measures the ongoing review process in relation to risk levels, “the trade group said in a press release.

The IATA recommendations are outlined in a recently published policy paper entitled “From Restart to Recovery: A Plan to Simplify Travel,” the release says.

Governments have implemented more than 100,000 COVID-19-related measures worldwide, and the complexity has been exacerbated by inconsistencies between nations caused by the measures, the bulletin added.

The main IATA recommendations include the removal of all barriers to travel, including quarantine and fully vaccinated testing, as well as non-quarantine travel for unvaccinated passengers who test negative for COVID-19 before departure.

In addition, IATA called on governments to recognize digital health certificates, such as the European Travel Certificate, which is currently recognized in the EU and 22 non-EU countries.
