AIRSAN Guidance Document "Contact Tracing – Collaboration between the Public Health and the Aviation Sector"

This AIRSAN Guidance Document aims to create a better understanding on diverging and joint positions of public health authorities and airlines in the area of contact tracing. It may positively contribute to intersectoral cooperation and to finding a common best practice of performing contact tracing.

The contents base on several existing documents on contact tracing (e.g. developed by WHO, ECDC, ICAO and IATA) as well as on the expertise of professionals from the public health and the aviation sector.

This AIRSAN Guidance Document uses a question-and-answer format. Key questions regarding contact tracing from the perspective of the different actors involved are discussed (e.g. How quickly do public health authorities need the data to perform contact tracing? How quickly can airlines provide the requested data?). 

Finally, a joint perspective for public health authorities, airlines and airports is shown and a joint mission statement of recommended common best practice is formulated.
