Several stakeholders are increasingly prioritizing digital and contactless solutions as travel and tourism being one of the industries hardest-hit by the coronavirus-pandemic-induced lockdowns.

In this vein, Air France has partnered with MedAire, SGS, International SOS, and the International Chamber of Commerce to test a blockchain-based COVID-19 travel system.

Beginning March 11, Air France will begin the pilot test of the ICC AOKpass system developed by MedAire and the International SOS. With the app, travelers need not present a paper test result, as the ICC AOKpass will serve as a secure form of verification of the user’s COVID-19 negative status. The ICC AOKpass is an app that travelers can install on their smartphones that contains a secure record of their COVID-19 test results from approved labs.

According to an announcement on Tuesday, the test will run for four weeks and will cover only the Paris CDG-Pointe-à-Pitre and Paris CDG-Fort-de-France route.

The press statement also reveals that the use of the app will be voluntary for passengers flying the route. Air France said it will share details from the test with all other collaborators in the project to aid in further travel-related health digitization efforts.

Blockchain technology is rapidly growing day by day. Being part of it is a choice of every person, but we can not resist the fact of its huge impact on our everyday life and future.
