Several French airlines are going to test a blockchain-based health certificate.
The objective of health certificates is above all to streamline the customer journey at the airport.
From the beginning of March, Air France, Air Caraïbes, and French Bee passengers departing from Paris will be able to test the ICC AOK Pass digital health certificate.
A health certificate on the blockchain
The tests will be carried out at Paris airport on departure from French overseas territories, in particular Guadeloupe, Martinique, Guyana, Réunion and Tahiti for Air Caraïbes and French Bee.
This solution is developed by MedAire / International SOS and the International Chamber of Commerce. The CI’s AOKpass is part of efforts to enable governments to reopen cross-border travel safely and with confidence in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic 19.
The mobile app will help travelers present secure and digitally authenticated medical records to verify their coronavirus test results with airlines while securing their personal health data.
Air France is testing the certificate
Air France will also test the health certificate called “ICC AOKpass” from March 11 and for a period of 4 weeks for flights departing from Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe) and Fort-de-France (Martinique).
Since last September, the ICC AOK Pass has been successfully tested for flights by Etihad to Abu Dhabi. In addition, nearly 130 airports in 18 countries have decided to deploy ICC AOKpass pilots.
