Airport Health Accreditation

Testing Centre

The airport’s testing centre, delivered in partnership with Collinson, is conveniently located just one minute’s walk from the main terminal. It offers the full range of Government-approved Covid-19 tests (PCR, LAMP, Antigen, Antibody) for arriving and departing passengers for all international markets.

Passengers can pre-book their tests with confidence, and benefit from quick and reliable results. Rapid pre-departure testing solutions are available, and travellers can also take PCR tests on arrival.

The facility at London City is one of the few locations to offer a same-day Test to Release service, enabling passengers to be released from quarantine on day five after receiving a negative test result.

The tests are carried out by Collinson nurses and are available for passengers travelling from London City, or other airports.

All tests must be pre-booked online, and passengers are reminded not to turn up at the airport without an appointment. Bookings can be made online by visiting

The details of the various testing prices and timeframes for results are listed below.
