Transport ministry proposes EU Flight Pass based on local model

A non-paper sent by the Cyprus transport ministry pointed to the lack of coordination among EU member states, burdening the air transport industry


The Cyprus transport ministry sent a non-paper calling for a joint approach by all EU member states in addressing the repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic on air transport.

The informal document was sent in the framework of the Integrated Political Crisis Response (IPCR) and in view of the upcoming meeting of the EU Transport Ministers’ Council.

The Cypriot ministry pointed out that there is no uniform policy among member states regarding their epidemiological criteria for passengers, making things more complicated for travellers, airlines, and the air transport industry in general.

To address this, the transport ministry proposed the implementation of uniform epidemiological criteria through the establishment of an EU Flight Pass based on the model of the CyprusFlightPass, and rapid testing at airports before flights.
