A historical moment for AUA Airport and passengers:
Aruba in partnership with JetBlue Airways and The Commons Project launch the “CommonPass” with Boston passengers traveling to Aruba.
ORANJESTAD – On March 16, 2021, the Government of Aruba together with JetBlue and The Commons Project Foundation, in partnership with COVID testing companies Vault and XpresCheck launched the use of the CommonPass platform, allowing JetBlue passengers traveling from Boston’s Logan International Airport to Aruba’s Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA Airport) to enter the island by using the CommonPass digital health pass. The CommonPass platform enables safer travel and easy entry as Aruba bound travelers can simply scan their passports to verify that they meet entry requirements into Aruba.
As of Saturday, March 27 2021, all travelers to Aruba from cities throughout JetBlue's network will have the option to use the CommonPass App.
“Aruba is the first destination to adopt the platform to streamline entry into the nation. Aruba Airport gladly assisted the development and implementation of this new process together with other airport stakeholders and we look forward to facilitating more of these highly needed platforms,” said Shensly Tromp, Aruba Airport Authority N.V.’s Director Development & Technology.
Aruba requires that arriving passengers test negative for COVID-19 either within 72 hours of travel or upon arrival. All passengers who utilize Vault for supervised at-home PCR tests or XpresCheck for in-person testing, are now able to streamline the arrival process in Aruba by downloading the CommonPass App in advance of their flight. Upon arrival, CommonPass users will have access to dedicated CommonPass immigration lanes to start their vacation sooner. With CommonPass, all passengers can more easily comply with Aruba’s enhanced entry protocols, enabling arriving residents and visitors who have tested negative for COVID-19 to digitally verify their health status, and for visitors to begin their vacation worry-free.
