Skyport has released the latest episode of ‘Taking Off’, a video series with host Mikaela Pearman that highlights the airport, with this episode discussing the topic of Covid vaccine passports, noting that “in the US and Canada, there is presently no finalized policy on whether Covid passports would be required for entry.”
Speaking in the episode, Mikaela Pearman said, “The biggest topic in the travel industry these days is the Covid vaccine passport.
“In simple terms, a Covid vaccine passport, which would be a secure app on your phone that stores your Covid-19 test results and vaccination status, would serve as proof that you’ve been vaccinated against Covid-19, thus allowing you to travel freely.
“The UK is pushing for the Covid vaccine passports to come online before this summer while other countries in Europe are issuing certificates, developing digital immunity passports or like Greece, simply allowing travellers in as long as they have proof of negative test results, anitbodies or have been vaccinated.
“In the US and Canada, there is presently no finalized policy on whether Covid passports would be required for entry.
“Last year, Australian airline Qantas said it would only allow vaccinated passengers to travel with them and cruise ship companies are following suit.
“It is expected that Covid vaccine passports will be online by the summer and they are only for adults as children under 16 don’t need to be vaccinated.
“Please check with your travel agent or airline for the latest travel requirements.“
