Travelocity founder Terrell Jones says digital health apps can restore confidence in flying and meeting.
How can we restore confidence in traveling and attending in-person events? Proof of a negative Covid test is required of international travelers entering the U.S., but that’s not the rule for domestic travel…yet. As vaccine distribution continues to expand, we’re likely to see some form of a digital Covid passport required for all travel, believes Terrell Jones, founder of Travelocity, Kayak and several other travel startups. He’s now working with governments and travel leaders to establish such digital records.
In this episode of Eventful: The Podcast for Meeting Professionals, Loren Edelstein, vice president and content director for Northstar Meetings Group, speaks with Jones about these efforts, including whether it would make sense to conduct Covid testing at airports (3:55), how a globally accepted Covid passport could work (6:50) and whether meeting planners should be prepared to require such records from attendees (14:45).
