As the UK hits the significant milestone of 15 million vaccinations delivered, thoughts will naturally now turn to a safe return to international travel this summer. To aid this return, we have launched our latest COVID-19 testing service and now offer rapid lateral flow testing from two new walk-in screening sites at Edinburgh and Birmingham Airports. The test is available for £50 per person and can be booked via the our website.

A lateral flow test is a rapid antigen test that provides a Covid result in approximately 30 minutes. The test works by taking a throat and nasal swab, which then indicates if SARS-CoV-2 is present.

Once customers have booked a lateral flow test, they should then travel to the testing site. Upon arrival, a member of our staff will then guide customers through to a testing booth, where they will then be swabbed by a trained screening practitioner in full PPE. Results are sent out approximately 30 minutes after the test, including a Fit to Fly certificate for travel, if the result is negative.

Both walk-in sites also offer PCR Covid tests, available from £80 per person for international travellers.
