Now that NCR is placed in GCQ Alert Level 4 effective September 16, 2021, interzonal travel will be allowed to and from Manila for persons aged 18 to 65 years old and those not otherwise required to remain at their residences per IATF guidelines, subject to LGU restrictions and regulations.

To ease the passengers’ strict requirements, AirAsiaPH has decided to roll out a digital vaccine passport to check the flyers’ result authenticity and identification.

With the rise of vaccination rates in other countries, they also have required people to proof of vaccination (digital health certificates or vaccine passports), including commercial airlines, employers, colleges and universities, and retail establishments. In most countries, unvaccinated individuals are no longer allowed to eat both indoors and alfresco.

In a statement, spokesperson Steve Dailisan said, “This will be like a one-stop-shop where passengers could upload a copy of their vaccination card and RT-PCR (reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction) test result.”

In a recent survey they did, with respondents from Bohol, Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, and Cebu, about 78.5 percent believe that a vaccination card is a perfect alternative to other requirements such as RT-PCR or antigen tests results. Over 90 percent of survey participants also believed fully vaccinated people were more likely to travel if the testing requirements were removed. The survey also showed that respondents believe that having a fully vaccinated crew ensures that they’re safe in their flight.

AirAsia Philippines chief executive officer Ricky Isla also mentioned that 70 percent of their local employees are already fully vaccinated.

While this may indicate safe flying domestically, it is still recommended that flyers take precautions, including wearing a mask and physical distancing.
