Lufthansa passengers flying from Frankfurt or Munich will soon be able to take a coronavirus test before their departure or upon arrival, which could allow them to forgo any quarantine requirements.
The airline has partnered with Centogene and Medicare to set up testing facilities offering PCR (antigen) throat swab tests for Covid-19, with the results available within five hours via an app link.
The tests are certified by health authorities in Germany and Austria, Lufthansa’s main markets. Both countries currently have a 14-day quarantine requirement for arrivals from certain countries.
Passengers can register in advance for a test, or proceed directly to the test facility on arrival.
