The Azerbaijani state carrier will test the IATA Travel Pass on its most popular flights in August this year.

The IATA Travel Pass app is a digital travel pass that can be installed on smartphones and contains all the passenger health information needed for the flight, including their COVID-19 test results and in the future as well. vaccination information.

The application will help reduce the time required for pre-flight formalities.

Passengers traveling on the flights below will be the first to test the IATA Travel Pass app:

  • AZAL – Baku-Istanbul-Baku (GYD-IST-GYD)
  • AZAL – Baku-Moscow-Baku (GYD-DME-GYD)
  • Buta Airways – Baku-Istanbul-Baku (GYD-SAW-GYD)
  • Buta Airways – Baku-Zhukovsky-Baku (GYD-ZIA-GYD)

If the test is successful, the airline will consider the possibility of using the app continuously in the future.

The application will be available for all passengers departing from Azerbaijan on the above flights, as well as for Azerbaijani citizens arriving in the country.

Passengers who have provided their digital passport through the IATA Travel Pass app will be served in order of priority at the check-in counters. They will also be able to pass border control via the priority lane (Fast Track) upon arrival at Heydar Aliyev International Airport.

As a bonus for using the IATA Travel Pass application, each member of the AZAL Miles program who participates in the test of the application on flights operated by AZAL and Buta Airways will be credited with an additional 250 miles.

In May this year, AZAL and IATA discussed the possibility of using the IATA Travel Pass application in Azerbaijan. The introduction of the mobile app will help open borders securely and bring international passenger traffic back to pre-COVID-19 levels.

The IATA Travel Pass app can be downloaded for devices running iOS (version 13.2 and above) and Android (version 6.0 and above) via the following links:

It should be noted that the IATA Travel Pass application is designed in such a way as to allow the protection of personal data against unauthorized access. Personal information is not stored on IATA servers or other cloud services, which minimizes the risk of leakage.

Detailed instructions for using the app are available on the Airline’s website: https://www.azal.az/en/information/iata-travel-pass.
