Airlines are introducing a «digital health document» for tourists.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) in Geneva has announced that British Airways and other carriers will test the application in the coming weeks before it is released in the first quarter of 2021.
 
IATA emphasized that travelers' health data will only be stored on mobile phones and not in any central registry.
 
«Our ais is to create an economical, easy-to-use, efficient and secure system»,
Alexander de Juniac, IATA CEO informed at the press-conference.
 
We would like to remind, for the last some months in the world the prices for air tickets have been fallen. The average ticket price in September was $ 343 in the US, which is almost 36% lower than I August. Before the pandemic, the average ticket price in January was $ 478. In the last two months, prices are still 30-35% lower than last year, according to US statistics.
 
It is important to note that with the advent of the vaccine in the world, the cost of air tickets began, on the contrary, to increase. A record price jump has already been noted in Nigeria, where entrepreneurs have increase prices by 100-120%. This has forced some passengers to either abandon their travel plans or travel by highway transport or rail.
