From this Friday (November 27), budget airline Wizz Air will be offering passengers discounted Covid-19 tests and fit to fly certificates.
Passengers who need a negative test for foreign travel can get a PCR swab test and certificate for £85.
The mail order tests are provided by Confirm Testing, which usually charges £119 for both the test and certificate.
The Confirm Testing kits will include a collection bottle containing saline and a swab, protective packing wallet, a clear specimen bag to seal the sample, sample label, request form, and a return envelope with prepaid shipping. For customers requiring a negative test result 72 and 96 hours before travelling, kits can be ordered weeks in advance of a flight and kept at home.
The airline are advising customers to order the tests at least five days before their flight and then perform and return the test via Royal Mail four days before.
Test results are returned the day before the flight and, if purchased, a Fit to Fly certificate is issued for negative test results.
