American Airlines introduces a health passport for all international travel to the US.
The airline makes the VeriFLY APP available where customers will enter their destination and upload the necessary documentation, including proof of the negative PCR test
American Airlines is the first American airline to introduce an easy way to provide the results of a negative coronavirus (COVID-19) test and other comprehensive documents required for international travel to the United States. The VeriFLY app, a mobile health passport that helps customers understand and verify their travel requirements, will be available to travelers starting Saturday, January 23, for travel from all international destinations. American is expanding access to the app in support of the U.S. government's requirement that all passengers over the age of two traveling to the United States from any international location test negative for COVID-19 within three calendar days of departure.
American is the first US airline to introduce a health passport for inbound travel to the United States from all international destinations.
Customers traveling to the United States can use the VeriFLY app for testing and other COVID-19 travel requirements beginning January 23.
"We are expanding our work with VeriFLY to rapidly evolve the use of the application and make international travel easier for our customers," said Julie Rath, Vice President of Customer Experience at American. "We support the implementation of a global program to require COVID-19 testing for travelers to the United States, and we want to do everything we can to make travel a seamless experience for customers." We have received positive feedback on the app so far and we hope that more customers will have the opportunity to use it. "
Customers can now use VeriFLY to streamline travel from the United States to multiple countries, including Jamaica, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. To date, thousands of American Airlines customers have traveled using the app.
Using the VeriFLY app is simple. After downloading the application from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store, customers create an account, enter their destination, and upload necessary documentation, such as a negative COVID-19 test record.
Customers are encouraged to review travel requirements to their destination, including any restrictions on the passport or point of origin. Visit aa.com to learn more about VeriFLY and the airline's pre-night testing program.
