Visitors flying to Hawaii on United Airlines will soon be able to verify their negative Covid-19 test using CommonPass, the digital health passport being developed by the Commons Project with the backing of the World Economic Forum, 37 governments and Internova, the largest travel agency group in the U.S.
Simon Talling-Smith, president of CommonPass, said the program could begin in as soon as two weeks and that it will expand to confirm vaccination status “as soon as the rules are ready.”
The program will be similar to one already in place with Aruba and JetBlue.

During an interview with Travel Weekly editor in chief Arnie Weissmann for members of House of Beyond on Thursday, Talling-Smith said CommonPass is also in discussions with other agency groups, OTAs, cruise lines, airlines, tour operators, all-inclusives and resorts “across the travel spectrum."
CommonPass is one of three digital passport companies the state is using in its Safe Travels program.
