Travel App may be launched soon making quarantine obsolete

50 years!

As I prepare for my upcoming trip to the incredible Palladium Lady Hamilton all-inclusive resort in Jamaica, I came across an article about a new travel app that could make travel in this COVID paradigm easier!

CNBC is reporting, “A new app, set to launch within weeks, could mark the first step in resuming quarantine-free international travel.

The International Air Travel Association (IATA) travel app will allow governments and airlines to digitally collect, access and share information on the status of individual passengers’ Covid-19 test and vaccination. 

The industry body, of which 290 airlines are members, said the tool will bring greater “efficiency” to health documentation checks, while speeding up the recovery of the hard-hit travel sector.

“It’s really about digitizing an existing process,” Nick Careen, IATA’s senior vice president for airport passenger cargo and security, told CNBC Wednesday.

For months, I’ve been telling my audience that at some point, a “COVID Passport” will be required for traveling.

I was quoted in TravelPulse.com about this very issue:

I also appeared on News4Jax in Jacksonville about this topic.

The fact of the matter is many Americans will refuse to take the COVID vaccine. People who have previously spent tens of thousands of dollars on airfare, cruises, all-inclusive resort vacations and overseas trips will cease traveling.

Not only will the tourism industry be harmed, but the cabin stewards, waiters, bar tenders and other service-related staff will be harmed financially and emotionally.

While technology may help us travel quickly and safely in the future, it’s ultimately up to the American people if they will continue flying, cruising and visiting overseas all-inclusive resorts.

As for me, you will find me at a Palladium Hotel Group resort, or on a cruise ship when they resume sailing.
