Collinson and Swissport have today announced the launch of pre-departure rapid testing facilities at Heathrow airport.

The industry-leading testing facilities, a UK first, are a critical step in the sector’s recovery, and are aimed at restoring traveller confidence and re-opening routes from the UK to the rest of the world.

The facilities, located in Terminals 2 and 5, will initially offer passengers travelling to Hong Kong the option to fulfil those countries’ pre-departure testing requirements at the airport before they fly. These countries currently require passengers to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test prior to departure, but allow for testing technologies that can deliver fast results.

These tests, including LAMP and Antigen tests, can easily be administered before a flight is taken.
