GE’s Wellness Trace App
GE’s Wellness Trace App is the first blockchain-based application providing a set of cleaning protocols for tracking the object’s cleanliness in the airport. Moreover, it is designed to make sure everything is disinfected on a regular schedule. The app is now accessible on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Firstly, GE launched its commercial Wellness Trace App in collaboration with TE Food International GmbH and Eurofins Scientific in late June 2020. With this in mind, the app now acts as a platform for airports and airlines.
Albany started a three-month Wellness Trace App trial by operations staff. Moreover, the app operates with more than 45 QR barcodes located throughout the airport. Operations staff will be able to check the cleaning of objects by scanning each QR barcode.
GE Aviation’s Digital Group General Manager Andrew Coleman said,
The app is helping them closely track COVID-19 cleaning protocols today, with the potential to track other health screening as the Industry and regulators navigate safe travel in a post-pandemic world.
General Electric Company is an American multinational corporation headquartered in New York City. On the other hand, Albany International Airport is the major air center for Albany and the Capital Region.
Meanwhile, COVID-19 is affecting more than 215 countries and territories with over 1.3 million deaths globally. This app will serve as one of the best technologies for air travelers to safeguard themself from COVID-19.
