Airports May See Pass-Fail COVID-19 Testing Policy as Travel Sector Reboots


A new set of criteria for testing travellers amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic should deliver fast results and be conducted at scale with “very high rates of accuracy”, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said on Wednesday.

The announcement follows a new set of guidelines published by the International Civil Aviation organisation (ICAO), which advised governments on restarting the aviation industry while ensuring passenger safety.

The testing protocols should work according to new guidelines aiming to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmissions in air travel and to avoid “economic or logistical” barriers to travel, one of the world’s largest aviation associations announced this week.
