World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) And the International Air Transport Association (IATA) (THERE IT IS) Collaborate in efforts to increase trust and accelerate recovery of the tourism sector as borders reopen. UNWTO-IATA Target Tracking is a new free online tool that provides information on the requirements of Corona virus targets and morbidity at each target.

The tool is available on the websites of both organizations (click here) And includes information on:

Corona virus morbidity indices, positive test rates and number of vaccinated by target / country.

Regulations applicable to flights, including inspection and isolation requirements, provided by IATA.

General health and safety requirements such as the use of masks, transit through the country (transit), closures or regulations related to restaurants and attractions, provided by national tourism organizations.

Governments can use the tool to publish travel information so that potential travelers know what to expect in their destination. Travel stakeholders, including destination management organizations (DMOs) and travel agencies, will be able to obtain the latest destination information, which will allow travelers to make informed decisions when borders reopen and travel resumes.

Secretary General of the World Tourism Organization, Zorb Polulikashvili (Zurab Pololikashvili), Said: “The organization is pleased to strengthen its partnership with IATA, to provide this important tool. Travelers and companies will be able to check the requirements for flights, as well as what measures will be in place of destination. We are confident that this tool is also critical for governments to monitor existing travel restrictions and support their reactivation. ”

“More than a year has passed since the freedom of movement was lost, as measures following the outbreak of the virus have led to the closure of borders. When governments have the confidence to reopen borders people will long to travel. And they will need accurate information to guide them. With the support of National Tourism Organizations, UNWTO-IATA Target Tracking will help travelers and travel companies obtain the latest travel planning information, ”he said. Willie Walsh, CEO of IATA.
