Same-day PCR Covid-19 test results available at London Biggin Hill
London Biggin Hill Airport is offering polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests at its Mansi Testing Suite to all passengers, aircrew and members of the public, with results available the same day.
Andy Patsalides, head of marketing, London Biggin Hill said: “Since we opened last month, we have administered more than 3,000 tests at the Mansi Testing Suite, a proud moment for London Biggin Hill and everyone pulling together to help in the effort against the virus in London and the South East.”
Patsalides added: “Being able to deliver PCR test results the same day is another positive step in our Contactless Travel initiative and means we can keep our passengers and aircrew moving whilst ensuring their safety.”
All tests, including same-day PCR tests, must be pre-booked online here.
As well as improving the experience of centre users Patsalides said the test gives the ability to provide a test result the same day which “also means passengers are not enduring lengthy delays that can greatly impact on their travel plans.”
The Mansi Testing Suite has now carried out over 3,000 tests since it opened last November. It has proven popular according to the airport.
“Passengers can book private air travel with the help of a charter broker or operator over the phone, be delivered straight to the aircraft door from their own cars, and if passing through a terminal, observe strict social distancing measures to ensure a safe complete journey,” added Patsalides.
There is a maximum of four tests that can be taken at the Mansi Testing Suite. The costs range from £75 for an Antibody Blood Test, to the Same-day RT-PCR Fit to Travel test at £250.
The focus for London Biggin Hill now is to maintain an efficient but safe operation at the Mansi Testing Suite and further help the effort against the virus in London and the South East of England.
