March 18. JetBlue and The Commons Project Foundation, in partnership with the government of Aruba and COVID testing companies Vault and XpresCheck®, have begun using the CommonPass® platform, allowing JetBlue customers traveling from Boston’s Logan International Airport to Aruba’s Queen Beatrix International Airport to enter the island nation using the CommonPass® digital health pass. The
CommonPass® platform enables safer travel and easy entry as travelers can simply scan their passports to verify that they meet entry requirements into Aruba.
Aruba requires that arriving passengers test negative for COVID-19 either within 72-hours of or upon arrival. Boston customers who use JetBlue’s testing partners, Vault for supervised at-home PCR tests or XpresCheck® for in-person testing, are now able to streamline the arrival process in Aruba by downloading the CommonPass app in advance of their flight.
Upon arrival, CommonPass® users will have access to dedicated CommonPass® immigration lanes to start their vacation sooner. More testing facilities are expected to be added to the CommonPass® platform in the coming weeks and months.
“CommonPass® and the CommonTrust® Network provide passengers, airlines and governments with a trusted system to digitally verify that an international traveler meets entry requirements upon arrival,” said Paul Meyer, CEO of The Commons Project Foundation. “Our registry of health data sources—information from labs, pharmacies, hospitals and health departments—is essential to giving the public the confidence to once again travel, attend events and enjoy activities they did prior to COVID-19.”
