Travel tech firm Travelport has launched a new tracker giving updates on the health and safety measures being taken by airlines.
The Travelport Airline Health & Safety Tracker features the latest information on hygiene procedures from more than 80 carriers around the world.
The tracker, which is updated weekly, looks at seven key airline safety measures including the mandatory use of face masks, socially distanced seating, pre-boarding temperature checks, improved air filtration, enhanced cleaning, reduced onboard food and beverage services, and mandated health certification or declaration by travellers.
Kyle Moore, Travelport’s global head of customer strategy and marketing, said: “In recent months, the travel industry has introduced a wide array of robust health and safety measures to enable a safe and responsible return for travel.
“As we sit at the heart of the industry, both aggregating, and enabling the merchandising of, travel content from all corners of the world, we are in a natural position to bring this information into a single place and deliver it to travel agents and travellers.
“Using our leading technology, we believe this tool will help travellers to match their travel needs with the safety measures they expect, bringing back confidence in travel and supporting a strong industry recovery.”
The tool, which is free to use, is being made available both to Travelport clients and the wider travel industry through Travelport’s Covid-19 Resource Hub, as well as its Covid-19 Smartpoint Plugin and Travelport Branded Fares Data File.
