CommonPass will be available to more travelers as of December

Earlier this week, The World Economic Forum and The Commons Project Foundation welcomed the Airport Council International (ACI) World, representing nearly 2,000 airports globally, and five leading global airlines as members of the CommonTrust Network. The CommonTrust Network is a global non-profit initiative to empower individuals with access to health information, including lab results and vaccination records.

As of December, airlines JetBlue, Lufthansa, Swiss International Airlines, United Airlines and Virgin Atlantic will begin roll-out of the CommonPass app to passengers traveling from New York, Boston, London and Hong Kong.

"The members of the CommonTrust Network are coming together to implement an inclusive global network designed to empower individuals with digital access to their health information so they can protect and improve their health, and demonstrate their health status to safely return to travel, work, school, and life, while protecting their data privacy," said Paul Meyer, CEO of The Commons Project Foundation. "We welcome collaboration with public and private stakeholders across many sectors, including ACI World and IATA in aviation."

CommonPass was first successfully trialed in October on Cathay Pacific Airways and United Airlines flights between Hong Kong, Singapore, London and New York.
