National Aviation Services (NAS) has become the first Ground Handling Agent (GHA) in the world to integrate with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Travel Pass.

IATA made the announcement at the 33rd IATA Ground Handling Conference in Prague on 17 November.

NAS has joined its Medical Utility Network Accreditor (MUNA) with the IATA Travel Pass, a mobile app that helps passengers easily and securely manage their travel in line with any government requirements for Covid-19 testing or vaccine information.

MUNA, based on a patented block chain technology, connects audited labs in more than 740 cities across the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the US. The online platform offers verified and authenticated PCR test certificates to ease procedures for both travellers and staff at airports.

Rami Al Haddad, Group CIO at NAS highlighted: “NAS prides itself on pioneering innovative travel solutions throughout the pandemic. We are pleased to integrate with IATA Travel Pass to not only enhance the customer experience but also fulfill the requirements of airlines, airports and governments - safely, seamlessly and efficiently."

NAS has a presence in more than 55 airports across the Middle East, Africa and South Asia providing services to more than half of the world’s top ten airlines and key aviation hubs.
