New Check & Fly App Provides Travelers With Airport Health Information

Airports Council International (ACI) World has launched a new smartphone app which provides passengers with information about the health measures in place at individual airports around the world.

As travel restrictions are gradually lifted, many new health-related measures have been implemented at airports in response to COVID-19. The Check & Fly app provides a way for airports to communicate to passengers directly as to what to expect when they plan to travel, helping them to meet any requirements, and making their journeys smoother and more efficient.

The app complements ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation program which provides an assessment of measures in accordance with ICAO Council Aviation Recovery Task Force (CART) recommendations and in alignment with the joint EASA and ECDC Aviation Health Safety Protocol and ACI EUROPE’s Guidelines for a Healthy Passenger Experience at Airports.

Check & Fly has been developed in partnership with members of ACI’s Airport IT World Standing Committee and is available from the Apple App Store.

The data is also available via an Application Programming Interface (API) based on the Aviation Community Recommended Information Services (ACRIS) standard that enables third parties such as airlines and app developers to access data. The API is now available.

In addition to the app and API, to help airports to communicate with passengers, ACI is developing a web-based portal where passengers can directly access information about the measures in place at individual airports.

Once completed, airports will provide information directly into the service via a web-based portal which can be accessed by passengers through the web (or the app). This will assist them to better prepare for their journeys.
