Global travel technology provider Travelport has launched the Travelport Airline Health & Safety Tracker. The tool, which is free of charge and available to both Travelport customers and the wider industry, reports what measures are being deployed by more than 80 of the world’s largest airlines, broken out by region.
In addition, the tool also highlights information from global hotel chains and car providers.
The tool is available to the general traveling public through the company’s COVID-19 Resource Hub. It is also being delivered to both online and offline travel agencies through the recently launched Travelport COVID-19 Smartpoint Plugin, an API-based merchandising solution and Branded Fares Data File.
The tracker monitors seven key safety measures that are being widely adopted across the airline industry, including:
mandated use of face masks
socially distanced seating
temperature checks before boarding
improved air filtration
enhanced cleaning programs
reduced onboard food and beverage services
mandated traveler health certification or declaration.
The data is presented in a simple visual format and is updated by Travelport on a weekly basis.
Kyle Moore, global head of customer strategy and marketing, said the company is in “a natural position” to bring this information into a single place and deliver it to travelers and travel agents.
