United Airlines will start with free airport COVID-19 tests on select flights to London

TRAVEL SECURITY

United Airlines announced the world's first free transatlantic COVID-19 testing pilot program for customers heading to London. From November 16 through December 11, the airline will offer rapid tests to every passenger over two years old on flights from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to London Heathrow (LHR). Passengers must make a reservation for the airline to administer the test free of charge inside the United Club. Travellers on the designated flights must schedule an appointment and take the test at least three hours before a flight. It's good to know that passengers with negative test results won't be able to bypass a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival in London.
