The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has launched a free-to-use online interactive world map for travellers to access the latest COVID-19 entry regulations by country. The map relies on IATA’s Timatic database, which is currently updated more than 200 times per day to provide accurate travel restrictions specific to the current pandemic.
Anish Chand, IATA’s Assistant Director of Timatic, says, “As the aviation industry prepares to safely restart, travellers will need to know which countries’ borders are open and what health restrictions exist. Travelers can rely on Timatic for comprehensive and accurate information on travel during the pandemic.’’
More than 80% of travellers said they are as concerned about potential quarantine restrictions as they are about catching the virus while travelling.
The tool answers a definite need, as recent research commissioned by IATA reveals that more than 80% of travellers said they are as concerned about potential quarantine restrictions as they are about catching the virus while travelling.
IATA’s COVID-19 interactive world map can be viewed here, on both desktop and mobile. The Timatic COVID-19 Alerts service was also launched this week so that subscribers can benefit from real-time notifications for all travel updates related to the pandemic.
