Our testing centre, located in the main terminal, is now open and will offer a full range of Government approved tests for arriving and departing passengers. This will include a rapid LAMP test which will allow quarantine to be cut from 10 to 5 days.
Tests will be carried out by Collinson nurses and are available for passengers using LCY, or other airports.
All tests must be booked online ahead of time and passengers are reminded not to turn up at the airport without a confirmed appointment. Bookings can now be made online by visiting here.
Costs and expected times for results to be received are listed below. We would also encourage you to consider UK government advice on testing and arrival procedures at your destination: www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
