Fit to Fly Covid Testing

Covid Testing

Fit-to-Fly

Covid testing with the national testing programme is in place for those with symptoms of Covid-19 however some people wish to have proof for employers, airlines, or travel destinations that they do not have Covid-19. They require a negative test result.

If travelling Covid testing is essential, so ask how long before your journey you need to complete the test and factor in a 1 to 2 day period after the test to get your results back from the lab. This means that if you are required to have a test within 3 days of flying you will need to get the test done 3 days prior to travel to ensure your results are back before you fly. Do not leave it to the day before.

The test involves taking a swab from the back of the throat and/ or from the nostrils, this is then sent to the lab for analysis.
