American Airlines is rolling out a mobile "health passport" for international travelers arriving in the US starting January 23, the airline said on Thursday.
The airline's announcement comes after the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's decision on Tuesday to require negative COVID-19 tests or proof of COVID-19 recovery from all travelers entering the US starting January 26.
In order to meet the CDC's new demands, American will be using Verifly's mobile app platform to create a health passport. The app will then allow travelers to confirm travel requirements and upload negative COVID-19 test results and other paperwork needed to fly into the US.

The airline is the first in the country to introduce this type of health passport system, according to American, and could in theory be used for similar proof of vaccination if required in the future.
