Dubai’s budget airline flydubai has partnered with the UAE’s official app for contact tracing and health testing related to COVID-19, Alhosn to offer passengers with digital verification of COVID-19 medical records while traveling from the Emirates.
Flydubai is the first airline to team up with the Alhosn app to provide this service to its customers. The flydubai passengers, who are citizens, residents, and visitors of the UAE, can now use the Alhosn app at check-in instead of a hard copy of their negative COVID-19 PCR test result.
According to the company statement, “This service is now available for flydubai passengers departing from Terminal 2, Dubai International (DXB). Plans to integrate the service for flydubai flights departing from Dubai International (DXB), Terminal 3 are currently under development for future phases of the program.”
“We would like to thank Alhosn for their partnership and support in implementing this digital verification facility and we are pleased to become the first airline to offer this service to the benefit of our passengers. As travel demand continues to increase, flydubai is committed to providing our passengers with more ways to make their journey easier and more convenient. The Alhosn app helps us achieve this goal in a seamless, secure, and effective manner.”
Developed in UAE, Alhosn App is a joint initiative between the Ministry of Health and Prevention and local health authorities and it is endorsed by the National Authority for Emergency and Crisis Management. It’s the UAE’s official COVID-19 results app, and it gives users rapid access to their COVID-19 test results and immunization information.
Recently, Abu Dhabi has mandated the use of Alhosn green pass for entry to public spaces, such as shopping malls, supermarkets, gyms, hotels, public parks and beaches, private beaches and swimming pools, entertainment centers, cinemas, museums, restaurants, and cafés.
