Study finds that most travelers are fine with health passports to restart travel

The survey of 9,055 travelers in France, Spain, Germany, India, UAE, Russia, Singapore, the U.K. and the U.S. also found that more than nine in 10 (93 percent) travelers having some concerns around how their health data for travel would be stored. Seventy-two percent said that they would be willing to store their travel health data electronically if it enabled them to travel to more destinations, and 68 percent agreed they would be more likely to share their health data if the airlines they most frequently travel with offered a way to store their travel health data.

Forty-one percent agreed that a travel app would reduce their stress around travel, and 62 percent said that they would be more likely to use an app to store their health data if a travel company partnered with a trusted healthcare company.
