Mongolian Airlines (MIAT) operated the first-ever charter flight (OM7602) on which all passengers and air crew members used a digital health pass to verify their COVID-19 negative status. The flight was chartered by Rio Tinto to take its employees to Oyu Tolgoi site, one of the largest known copper and gold deposits in the world.
All the employees took a PCR test 24 hours before the flight, which followed a test nine days prior to the flight. They also underwent an International SOS ‘Fit for Travel Assessment’ via survey forms through the Work Pass app.
The International SOS Work Pass full integration with AOKpass provided the employees with a unique AOKpass QR code linking to their digital health certificate. This was presented at the arrival gate, where inspection personnel scanned the QR code to verify that the passenger had the valid required certificates for the flight and entry to country, including COVID-19 negative status.
