Travelers were also asked what solutions might reassure them when it comes to digital health data with 42% of respondents saying a travel application for the whole journey would improve the overall experience and 41% saying such an app would reduce travel stress. In addition, 30% cite concerns over a lack of transparency and control over where the data is shared. More than 60% of travelers also said they would be more likely to use an app to store health data if a travel partnered with a “trusted” healthcare company.
However, this goes against the desire from airlines to move away from storing customer data and for governments to have a direct relationship with consumers when it comes to travel. Almost 70% of travelers say they would also be more likely to share health data if carriers they travel with most frequently offered a way to store their travel health data.
While travelers are willing to share data they still have concerns about the related risks with 38% expressing concerns about personal information being hacked and 35% saying they were concerned about the privacy of health information shared. The Rebuild Travel Digital Health survey also quizzed participants on storing health details electronically with 72% saying they would be willing if it speeded up processing at the airport and 74% if it meant they could travel to more destinations.

“Collaboration across governments and our industry is the key to restarting travel, as we deliver on traveler expectations outlined in this Rebuild Travel digital health survey, deploying the right technology to enable a truly connected and contactless journey.” Decius Valmorbida, president for travel at Amadeus, says: “There is no doubt that Covid-19 will continue to shape the way we travel for the months ahead, just as it influences so many other areas of our lives. Yet while there are still uncertainties, research like this reinforces my optimism that we will build back travel better than before.
