Scalable PCR covid-19 testing for Airport operators & Airlines

Encouraging safe travel through scalable PCR testing

A science-led approach to easing travel quarantines and kick-starting the global travel recovery.

COVID-19 has changed the world and impacted travel enormously. With our gold-standard PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing propositions, governments, travel and health authorities can implement safe and science-led processes to monitor and manage travellers who cross their borders. Travellers will also be able to feel confident about their status and take appropriate action; those who test positive will be asked to quarantine according to local guidelines, while those who test negative can continue with their plans.

PCR testing is sensitive enough to detect the particles of COVID-19, even if the passenger is asymptomatic. This science has been proven by scientists in multiple countries across the world, who are currently using PCR testing to ensure the safety of travellers and their borders.

Core Programme

Adapted to your needs

Each country and airport is unique in how they manage passenger flows and the landscape is constantly changing. With this in mind, we take a tailored approach to devising the most appropriate solution for your specific needs, with safety and traveller experience at the forefront.

Core Programme

Our test-on-arrival pilot

Subject to UK government approval, travellers could be tested for COVID-19 on arrival into Heathrow. They simply book an appointment before they depart for Heathrow, take the 90 second test at the airport and then continue to their final destination to await their results in comfort. Results are typically back with the traveller within seven hours.

Core Programme

Test-on-departure

Ideal for long-haul routes where the destination has quarantine measures in place. Passengers are tested prior to flying in order to fast-track their arrival at their destination. Samples are tested while passengers are in the air and they receive their results on landing, avoiding the need to take a test on arrival.

Core Programme

Test-to-fly

Some jurisdictions allow tests to be taken up to 48 to 72 hours before travel. In this model, in-city or at-airport test centres allow travellers to take a test within the pre-travel time-frame and then show their certificate at the airport.
