    Caribbean Airlines travelers can now upload their COVID-19 test results via a mobile app for presentation when checking in at the airport.

    CAL says the app is called “Ink Mobile App (Tento Wallet) and is available on iOS and Android.

    It will act as a digital health passport and the airline will verify test results via the QR code from the app downloaded on customers’ smartphones, providing touchless transactions.

    CAL notes the app is an added benefit following its recently launched service where persons can book COVID-19 tests with accredited institutions via the website, caribbeanairlines.health.ink.

    The airline says persons should choose test dates that align with entry protocols for their destination.

    Currently, some countries require that PCR tests be done within 72 hours of travel, while others accept PCR tests done within 7 days.
