Delta and Virgin Atlantic to launch built-in digital health credential; provides blueprint to reopen trans-Atlantic travel

Virgin Atlantic plans to begin testing the solution, adapted as Virgin Atlantic FlyReadySM, on Virgin Atlantic-operated flights between London Heathrow and U.S. cities starting in June. Those eligible to use the tool during the test will be contacted before travel with more information on how to participate.

As of June 17, 2021, the U.S. remained on the U.K.’s Amber List as part of its phased plans to reopen international travel into the country this summer. Airlines continue to encourage both governments to enable U.K. residents and citizens to enter the U.S., and to move the U.S. to the U.K.’s Green List, fully reopening the trans-Atlantic corridor. As these discussions continue, Delta and Virgin Atlantic are putting technology into action that will serve as a blueprint to reopen international travel broadly.

AN EASY-TO-USE EXPERIENCE TO VERIFY ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Delta FlyReady is a new technology solution built on trusted health standards to digitally verify testing documents** needed to travel on both Delta and Virgin Atlantic flights.

Here is an overview of how the experience works for eligible customers:

  • Book your flight and check your email. Because the solution is integrated directly into Delta’s systems, there is no need for customers to download an additional app – eligible customers can access Delta FlyReady through a link found in their pre-flight email or My Trips before travel.
  • Schedule your COVID-19 test up to three days before departure. In partnership with TrustAssure, Delta will serve up verified COVID-19 testing locations near you and offer the option to book a test in a couple of clicks.*** Once you have taken your test, you will receive an email from TrustAssure confirming your Delta FlyReady status or notifying you of additional actions needed.
  • Already have results from another test provider? No problem. If you chose to get tested through another provider, use the “upload test results” option to verify a digital copy or photo of your results. Upload before arriving at the airport, verify and enjoy the same time-saving benefits of your Delta FlyReady status.
  • Check-in as you normally would before travel. No need to stress – Delta has automatically linked your Delta FlyReady status to your itinerary, and you are ready to travel.****

Delta FlyReady offers benefits for Delta employees as well. Over time the solution will limit the amount of paperwork involved in verifying a customer’s Delta FlyReady status. Airport agents will be shown a digital indicator to prove the customer has met necessary requirements, lowering the risk of denied boarding.

All customer health data associated with Delta FlyReady is encrypted. Nothing is stored in Delta’s systems. Delta only receives a digital indicator showing that the customer has met the applicable legal requirements.
