SYNLAB, IATA partners facilitate safe and easy travel

Geneva / Munich, August 11 (ANI): Europe’s leading medical diagnostic service provider SYNLAB and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) have announced a partnership to facilitate safe and easy travel.

The two partners signed an agreement on Wednesday to incorporate SYNLAB’s extensive lab network into the IATA Travel Pass.

This will give airline passengers access to SYNLAB’s extensive and secure Covid-19 test service, benefiting from SYNLAB’s international capabilities. SYNLAB and IATA build on valuable experience gained during the successful pilot project of passenger testing in Colombia over the past few months.

The IATA Travel Pass allows passengers to find a licensed laboratory at the point of departure and be tested for SARS-CoV-2 at the request of national borders and health authorities.

After testing, SYNLAB will provide passengers with certified test results directly through the IATA Travel Pass. The app matches the results with the IATA Travel Path Registry for domestic entry requirements and generates an “OK to Travel” status.

Through the app, passengers can share their status and digital test certificates with authorities and airlines to facilitate travel.

Willy Walsh, IATA Executive Director, said the validated Covid-19 test is important for restoring travel freedom for unvaccinated people.

The IATA Travel Pass aims to make it as easy as possible for travelers to find accredited laboratories so that governments can safely receive the test results they need to enter the country.

“By adding SYNLAB’s extensive lab network, travelers can more easily meet Covid-19’s travel requirements,” he said.

SYNLAB has a network of over 450 medical laboratories and over 1,600 sampling points in 36 countries. (ANI)
