Cybersecurity specialist WISeKey International has unveiled an application to help travelers with COVID-19 restrictions as well environmentally-friendly travel choices.
WISeTravel, as the app is called, has been developed by a consortium with the same name and led by WISeKey and Climate Friendly Travel Services.
The idea is to give travelers access to a range of services to guide them through travel in the current crisis as well as provide information on environmentally responsible travel companies.
Services available via the app include a secure wallet containing a traveler’s trip information as well as a Digital Travel Identity.
WISeTravel also offers a health compartment for any relevant certificates and an area containing information on WTTC safe travel stamp holders.
Further features, related to environmentally-friendly travel, include a carbon calculator to help consumers offset trips, information on responsible companies and details of travel and tourism companies who have signed up to a registry committing to carbon neutrality.
WISeTravel is led by Christoph Klenner who previously ran lobbying organization, EU Travel Tech (formerly ETTSA).
