The site offers a Fit to Fly testing service, that travelers flying to ‘Green List’ destinations will need to use from May 24th 

Cignpost ExpressTest (a division of Cignpost Diagnostics Ltd) has today opened a drive through Covid-19 screening service in the XSite Braehead car park, Glasgow. The new facility, which is offering drive-through bookings, will be particularly useful for members of the public who are symptomless and so do not qualify for NHS emergency testing, but require a negative result either to visit family members, or to fly abroad to green destinations after May 24th. 

The tests on offer are priced at £80 per person for travel passengers and £99 per person for the test-only service. ExpressTest is delivered using the latest gold standard PCR equipment that is fully CE-IVD certified and manufactured to the highest possible standards, and tests are carried out by trained Screening Practitioners.  

The XSite facility is one of ten new sites to open across the UK before the end of May. This expansion means that 80% of the population will be within a 60-minute drive of a Cignpost ExpressTest site. As well as being a selected provider of discounted COVID-19 testing to British Airways, the company also provides gold-standard PCR tests at Gatwick, Heathrow and Birmingham Airports, as well as at Brent Cross Shopping Centre.  

Christian Corney , CEO of Cignpost ExpressTestsaid:  

“At Cignpost ExpressTest we are passionate about providing customers with very best testing experience as they prepare to travel. There is and will be a continued requirement for gold standard PCR testing as international travel recommences in Scotland from May 24th. Our new centre at XSite Braehead is our second in Scotland and a great addition to our nationwide services. We are proud to bring Covid-19 screening services to the local community, and whether for personal or business travel, we remain committed to delivering the best possible service at an affordable price.” 

Bruce Harley, General Manager of XSite Braehead said: 

“Everyone knows how challenging the past year has been, and I know we are all looking forward to getting back to normality. Throughout the pandemic, safety has always been our number one priority. Offering this new service to our visitors and the community will help to aid Scotland with its Covid recovery.”
