Qantas have announced they will begin trialling two digital apps that check passenger vaccine history, as the airline prepares to resume international travel.

Beginning this week, the CommonPass and Travel Pass programs will be in use, starting as an essential requirement for all Australians returning home.

NO JAB, NO TRAVEL

Qantas look to be following through with plans to check passenger vaccination history via digital apps, as the airline prepares to kickstart international travel.

To make for a smooth transition into a ‘COVIDSafe type of travel’, the company has announced they are now testing out the World Economic Forum’s CommonPass app and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Travel Pass program.

“They are essentially digitalised medical records, so airlines can see if people have returned negative COVID results and have been vaccinated.”

Apparently, according to news.com.au, “the majority of Australians overwhelmingly support the introduction of health passports to travel more freely”.

This is according to ‘research’ by Skyscanner, which they don’t bother to add a link to read. Typical mainstream media ‘journalism’.

So far, Qantas has only been testing the travel apps on crew members. From next week, they’ll be rolling it out to Australians flying back home.

The organisation say the passes are very similar to the COVIDSafe app, which are able to be shared between departments. They must have missed the fact these processes do not secure the privacy of citizens at all, and the data is stored by third-parties.

The company announced on Thursday that international travel might be back on the cards from October this year, pushing back its original ‘restart’ date of July 2021.

Air New Zealand will also begin trials of the Travel Pass app on services between Auckland and Sydney in April.

What are these programs? And who is developing them?


DIGITAL HEALTH PASSPORTS

The world has already been gearing up for the introduction of immunity passports at airlines and airports, and now this vision is reaching the shores of our land at home.

Both the IATA and Commonpass apps are designed to provide passengers with a ‘COVID-19 health status’ for airline staff to view.

Customers have to create a digital health wallet linked to their e-passport.

The World Economic Forum supported the development and launch of CommonPass, in collaboration with The Commons Project, an initiative which aims to “develop a global, interoperable framework to safely restore cross-border travel to pre-pandemic levels”:

According to the project, users would upload their coronavirus test results onto their phone, with the app generating a barcode to be scanned at the airport.

Similarly, the IATA Travel Pass enables passengers to create a “digital passport” to verify their pre-travel test or vaccination meets the requirements of the destination.

They will also be able to share the test and vaccination certificates with authorities and airlines to facilitate travel.

And we thought the transformations to airports and travel following 9/11 was bad? Constant checks, harmful screening processes, tightened guidelines.

Now, just as we saw with the failed and fraudulent ‘war on terror’, the ‘war against the invisible enemy‘ will also first take hold in airports across the world.

Have you been a good citizen and had your coronavirus vaccine?

If not, we will restrict your access to travel.

This is considered ‘reasonable’ in the year 2021.

Yet it sounds like something you would read from a 20th century history book.


‘PAPERS, PLEASE!‘

Qantas are the first to actually introduce trials of these types of technologies, which are predicted to soon expand to include welfare payments, employment and more.

We are now seeing the slow rollout of a worldwide tracking system that will be linked to the health status of each and every individual.

Will the coronavirus be the measuring stick that brings about Chinese-style, dystopian social credit system to Australia? Many of these concepts are key components of this.

Airports and airlines are installing futuristic technologies in preparation for when travel restrictions are finally eased. Let’s not forget facial recognition has already replaced passports.

Now, digital certificate will be required for individuals to ‘prove’ (and request proof from others) they have ‘recovered’ from the coronavirus, have tested positive for antibodies or have received a vaccination.

This has always been the agenda. Track and trace; identify the undesirables through deception.

However, it seems people won’t just roll over this time and opposition is continuing to grow due to the fact an honest and open debate has not been had on any public platforms.

Their own financial undoing will be due to the fact they won’t listen to the concerns of their audience about personal freedoms and right to avoid medical coercion, thus alienating them.

I have said it before and I will say it again: The consumer market will let them know where it hurts the most, their bottom dollar. The mainstream media predicts ‘the majority’ will accept these conditions, but I have a feeling they have things dead wrong.

Either way, a very interesting year lies ahead for us all. Community groups and civil liberty campaigners have a tough road ahead to try and restore some form of common sense to this country.

So long, Qantas. It was nice knowing you.

Who else wants to be kind enough to help me direct my business elsewhere?
