Air France has planned to trial a blockchain-based system for verifying COVID-19 test results for its passengers, as it has partnered with MedAire, SGS, International SOS, and the International Chamber of Commerce.

It has been reported that several stakeholders are increasingly prioritizing digital and contactless solutions to test a blockchain-based COVID-19 travel system.

However, from March 11, Air France will begin the pilot test of the ICC AOKpass system developed by MedAire and the International SOS. 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.

The report said that 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. Also, the test will run for four weeks and will cover only the Paris CDG-Pointe-à-Pitre and Paris CDG-Fort-de-France routes. The use of the app will be voluntary for passengers flying the route.

Air France said that it will share details from the test with all other collaborators in the project to aid in further travel-related health digitization efforts.

Thus, Catherine Villar, the Director of Customer Experience at Air France, stated:

“The test of the AOKpass solution is fully in line with this framework and the process initiated by the establishment of the Air France Protect label. We are convinced that the changes we are going through collectively will change the journey in the long term and are committed to supporting all innovation projects that can help us meet these new challenges.”
