In preparation for the restart of international travel, the airport has opened a new in-terminal Covid-19 testing facility with its partner Collinson - the UK’s leading provider of coronavirus testing for travellers.

The in-terminal expansion complements the existing drive-through facility located in the Mid-term car park, which launched in December.

Across both facilities, the full range of Government-approved COVID-19 tests will be on offer making travel to and from LLA safe and accessible to all.

The facilities are able to conduct 144 tests per hour, with the ability to scale up to meet a surge in demand once travel restrictions are lifted.

Neil Thompson, operations director at London Luton Airport, said: “Opening this in-terminal testing centre at LLA will offer access to all the necessary travel testing solutions, providing passengers further confidence in their ability to travel safely.

"This is another vital step in our preparations to kick-start our recovery once restrictions are lifted.”

David Evans, Joint CEO at Collinson, added: “For both consumers and the industry, travel testing is key to a successful summer.

"With flexible, convenient testing processes, administered by a medical professional, passengers flying through London Luton Airport can rest assured that all of their testing requirements are catered for when travel opens up once again.”
