Most travellers would be comfortable using some form of digital health pass in future, new research by Amadeus has revealed.
Some 91% of the 9,055 travellers polled by Censuswide as part of an Amadeus study said they would be happy to embrace new health certification.
Nearly three-quarters of respondents said they would be happy for their health data to be stored electronically if allowed them to pass through airports with fewer face-to-face interactions.
A further 72% said they would be happy for their data to be held this way if it allowed them to travel to more destinations; 68% said they would be more likely to share health data with frequently used airlines if they were offered a way to store travel health data.
However, 93% of those polled said they would want assurances about how their travel health data is stored.
Respondents’ three main worries were data security and exposure to hackers (38%), privacy concerns about the type of data sought (35%), and any lack of transparency around, and control over, how and where their data is shared (30%).
