While there have been many misfortunes regarding the traveling and tourism industry due to what COVID-19 has brought upon us, there are several industries that are working on solutions to make sense of everything once again.
According to the surveys, getting along with the “new normal” is vital. Once this situation is greeted –of course not with a welcoming arm and encouragement but with acceptance- you know that you could continue doing what you were doing before the pandemic, but with a few changes.
On this matter, Airlines, as well as other transportation systems and parties involved with the issue, have come up with some new ways to ease the stagnant travel business.
American Airlines will begin contributing customers to a mobile application to make travel to international destinations easier for them, named VeriFly.
Industrialized with identity assurance leader Daon, America’s new application was set to help travelers understand coronavirus testing and certification for their destination and update airport check-in by digital verification.
Passengers traveling with the airline to Montego Bay and Kingston, and Jamaica from or connecting through Miami will have the chance to test the innovative app at no cost. They should create a secure profile and confirm details for the trip beginning November 18.
American President Robert Isom asserted that piloting this new app is a direct answer to the customers and increases the desire to explore more international travel occasions. The app will help them deliver a more unified travel experience as they support the demand to return and put customers’ minds at ease that they are completely ready for the journey.
After creating a secure profile on their mobile device, customers will be encouraged to authorize details for their trip, including flight information, proof of a negative COVID-19 test, and any obligatory documentation for travel.
American’s application verifies the consumer’s data matches a country’s requirements and displays a simple pass or fail message. The airline is optimistic about how they are going to successfully expand the program in the weeks and months ahead.
