Air Transat customers can now upload and validate their destination health documents when checking in online, allowing them to obtain their digital boarding pass before arriving at the airport and ensure they meet entry requirements.
The new feature was announced via press release on Thursday (Jan. 13).
The tool, which uses a technology developed by Amadeus, is currently in a test phase and will be deployed in three phases, Air Transat said.
For now, it will only validate the COVID-19 test and will be available for a selection of routes, namely those travelling from Canada to the United States and back, as well as routes from France, Spain and the United Kingdom to Canada.
In the coming months, it will be extended to the entire Air Transat network and will also validate proof of vaccination for destinations that require it, the company said.
