Accounting for more than 25% of all cases globally, the US is the country most severely affected by covid-19. The Trump administration placed the responsibility
of lockdown restrictions onto individual states, for them to craft their own regulations, which led to a rather liberal quarantining legislation, permitting a
lot of movement during the pandemic.
With about 373k flights operating in
October 2020, domestic air travel has been on a steady rise after the first wave of the virus. However, the pandemic is
far from over. It has become increasingly important for organizations to take accountability for their employees’ safety. Let’s look at how travel tracking
systems, like Voyage Manager, can help make travel safer.
With the air traffic the country is seeing, airports around the states have actioned steps to make domestic travel contactless with the help of bar
codes and self-service kiosks. However, there are instances when the passenger has to take measures to ensure their own safety. At LaGuardia, for
example, only ticketed passengers are allowed entry to the airport.
Port Authority officers are stationed at all terminal gates to assist in monitoring access to the terminals.
Making travel contactless - the Vault
Voyage Manager’s Vault stores soft copies of all your documents on your device to save you the hassle of retrieving your original documents, and
coming in contact with people, at every point of your journey. With Voyage Manager, all your documents can be accessed on your phone via the Nucleus
and Vault apps.
Stay updated in case of any mishaps
According to the COVID tracking project, over 6M US residents were tested positive for the virus in december 2020. Voyage Manager can help ease
the anxiety that air travel can cause during such unprecedented times. Our Active
Tracking service module helps organisations stay in touch with their staff by requiring the employee to check in on the platform at every point of
their journey. In case of inactivity due to covid-related emergencies, the system sends an alert to both the employers and the employee.
Storing vaccination data efficiently
With news of several covid vaccines being developed across the globe, airlines might require passengers to be vaccinated before hopping onto a
flight soon. Your vaccine documents are bound to become as important as your travel portfolioIDs. Passengers may be required to show proof of
vaccination at several check points before boarding. Although it will be essential to have your original documents on your person while travelling,
having all your vaccination data digitally stored in the Vault will make it easier to present your documents in a contactless manner whenever possible.
In a recent press release, the Biden-Harris administration announced that they anticipate covid vaccines to be widely available by the second
quarter of 2021. Until a majority of the population is vaccinated, any mode of travel will come with increased health and safety risks. Ensure
your staff’s safety on the go with Voyage Manager!
