Common standards help safeguard passengers, employees
The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) certified EVA Air with a SafeTravels stamp. On behalf of the WTTC, Taipei City Government awarded SafeTravels stamps to 35 organizations, including hotels, travel agencies and exhibition centers. EVA Spokesman David Chen accepted the stamp from Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je on behalf of the airline. EVA is now an official member of the international safe travel reception service chain.
United Kingdom-based WTTC worked with health professionals and other industry associations to develop protocols and establish common standards designed to help safeguard the workforce and travelers as the globe’s new normal evolves. The SafeTravels Stamp enables travelers to recognize destinations and businesses worldwide that have adopted these standardized global health and hygiene protocols.
WTTC has awarded SafeTravels stamps to more than 250 destinations around the world, including to Taipei City in February 2021. It also authorized Taipei City to lead its region’s tourism sector in obtaining international safe travel stamps.
EVA upholds rigorous COVID-19 prevention standards and continually enhances and improves the measures it employs. It has begun to introduce biometrics identification to give passengers no-contact boarding services. It is also working with aviation industry partners to implement a reliable digital platform for verifying passengers’ PCR test results and vaccine injection records. EVA’s efforts have been recognized not only by AirlineRatings’ “Seven Star Certification for COVID-19 Epidemic Prevention” and inclusion among the “World’s Top Twenty COVID-19 Compliant Airlines” but also by being awarded WTTC’s Safe Travels stamp. It is the only airline in Taiwan to have earned these distinctions. EVA is continuing to work toward a safe post-pandemic business and leisure travel restart, aiming to deliver the safest, most reliable services possible to its passengers.
