American Airlines Debuts Vaccine Passport Feature


American Airlines recently took proof of vaccination into their own hands, adding a vaccine passport feature into the mobile app they have been employing since November. This feature will allow flyers to securely upload their CDC vaccination card before a trip to a destination requiring vaccination, where it will then verify and process the card before departure.

In explaining the news, Preston Peterson, American’s director of customer experience innovation, explained that “we’re now shifting into this phase…where countries are really opening up, but it’s more based on vaccines. We need to adapt to that shift and make sure that we’re providing an opportunity for our customers to use their vaccine status to get into a country or a destination if they choose to.” Learn more.
