Alaska Airlines has begun accepting the VeriFLY digital health passport app, which offers international travelers expedited check-in and verification for their arrival into the US. The carrier acted in response to the CDC order requiring international airline passengers to have proof of a negative COVID-19 test. Passengers will be able to store proof of their negative COVID-19 test, or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19, in addition to a health attestation form in the app to help optimize the document verification process and get them on their way. Although proof of a negative COVID-19 test is mandatory for travelers to enter into the country, usage of VeriFLY is not. Alaska’s passengers will have the option not to use the app for faster verification but will still be obligated to present the essential health documents as required by the CDC’s order.
