Amadeus signs Lufthansa for the integration of the digital health passport



Global aviation group Lufthansa recently integrated Amadeus’ Traveler ID for Safe Travel solution to integrate digital health card checks into their systems.

The partnership will initially allow travelers to check-in online for around 2,000 weekly flights from Schengen areas without risk, using Amadeus technology, and will also allow Lufthansa staff to check health documents with the Amadeus Airport Companion app.

From a technical standpoint, the Traveler ID for Safe Travel solution can process QR codes from digital health cards like the European Union’s COVID Digital Certificate Program (EU DCC). This allows travelers to scan their proof of vaccination or test results required to travel during the mobile check-in process.

“By once again enabling a self-service check-in experience, this innovative health verification technology helps facilitate passenger travel,” said Christian Warneck, vice president of Safe Travel Ecosystem at Amadeus.

As part of the Lufthansa partnership, Amadeus also confirmed that the Traveler ID for Safe Travel solution is now fully integrated with German medical testing services company and Lufthansa partner, Centogene. The move allows travelers who have booked their COVID tests through Centogene to scan a QR code when checking in through the airline’s app and have their results immediately processed by Amadeus.

“Through our secure travel ecosystem, we work tirelessly with our customers and partners such as Lufthansa and Centogene to remove friction from passenger travel and support travel recovery,” added Warneck.

In addition, Lufthansa airport staff will also have access to the Airport Companion app, allowing them to scan passenger boarding passes via an iPad.

Amadeus’ Traveler ID for Safe Travel also integrates with IBM’s Digital Health Pass and is currently used by eleven airlines, with more expected to be added to the list in the coming months.
