Travel Tech Applauds Dropping Pre-Departure Covid Testing Requirements

The Travel Technology Association (Travel Tech), the voice of the travel technology industry, applauds the Biden Administration’s announcement that it will drop the COVID-19 testing requirements for U.S.-bound vaccinated travelers.

“Now that this mandate is ending, the travel industry can focus on making a full pandemic recovery and families can move forward with summer travel plans, both domestically and globally,” says Mike Liptak, Travel Tech’s Vice President of Government Relations. “As the world continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, travel and tourism are playing a critical role in the economic recovery. Cross-border travel is a key, widely acknowledged economic driver for virtually every nation. A return to pre-pandemic travel levels is vital, and the U.S. is a keystone to that recovery.”
