COVID-19 screening service launches at Gatwick Airport

Pre-departure and post arrival ExpressTest COVID-19 screening will be available for Gatwick passengers, staff and local residents with results available the next day as from Monday, 30th November.

Gatwick’s air passengers and on-airport staff will be charged a subsidised rate of £60 while the general public will pay £99. A group discount is also offered, with up to 30% off for groups of four or more.

Gatwick Airport and ExpressTest site is located within the airport’s Long Stay Car Park at the South Terminal and will offer a fast and accurate and lab-analysed PCR swab test.

“We are delighted to be Gatwick airport’s official screening partner. We launched ExpressTest to give people peace of mind, whether that’s enabling travel through our Fit to Fly certificates, or providing the reassurance needed to safely visit friends and family abroad or within the UK. In the next couple of months we aim to have more than 30 locations operating across the UK, with the ambition of giving the British public the confidence to go about their daily lives in these uncertain times.”  ExpressTest Founder, Nick Markham

Those who screen negative will be emailed a Fit to Fly certificate that is authorised by a doctor, along with their test result, however, passengers will be responsible for checking with their travel provider as to whether this document is accepted before booking the screening service.
