Delta Air Lines announced Delta FlyReady, a digital health credential platform that allows passengers to schedule Covid-19 tests, verify test results, and confirm that they meet the necessary requirements for entry to a particular destination.

The system doesn’t currently manage coronavirus vaccination credentials but the airline said that support for such credentials will be added later this summer.

The justification for the system was simple: “We realized that our customers would need a way to navigate the complex requirements of post-COVID international travel,” said the airline’s chief customer experience officer, Alison Ausband.

Delta started to test the system in late April with passengers on flights from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and London Heathrow Airport before launching it to a broader audience.  Delta joint-venture partner Virgin Atlantic Airways will also offer the solution as Virgin Atlantic FlyReady.

The airline said that no additional apps are needed and emphasized that FlyReady was “guesswork free.”

While the solution is designed for flights between the United Kingdom and the United States, the airline has committed to expanding FlyReady as new international destinations open up.
