American Airlines has introduced an easy way to provide results from a negative COVID-19 test and any other completed documents required for international travel into the United States.
The new VeriFLY app is a mobile health passport that helps passengers understand and verify their travel requirements. It will be available for travellers arriving in the U.S. starting Saturday, January 23. The airline has already rolled out the app for international travelers flying into Jamaica, Colombia, Chile, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
American Airlines is expanding access to the app in support of the U.S. government’s requirement that all passengers 2 years of age and older traveling to the United States from any international location test negative for COVID-19 within three calendar days of departure.
“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’ve received positive feedback about the app so far and look forward to more customers having the opportunity to use it.” said Julie Rath, Vice President of Customer Experience at American.
The app is available from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store. Travelers can create an account, enter the destination they are traveling to and upload required documentation such as proof of a negative COVID-19 test.
