Airport parking operator APH has opened a drive-through COVID testing facility at Gatwick Airport.
The facility, run in partnership with Collinson, provides both pre-departure and arrival testing.
It offers RT-PCR tests plus the faster and cheaper RT-LAMP, antigen and antibody tests.
Collinson is one of the UK Government’s approved providers of mandatory tests on arrival, as well as for Test to Release requirements.
All tests are administered by medical professionals on site. Results for PCR tests, which cost £99, are available within 48 hours, LAMP tests within 120 minutes, and antigen and antibody tests within an hour.
APH Managing Director Nick Caunter said: “The COVID testing facility at our APH Gatwick site provides travellers with the option to have their COVID test done at the same location as parking their car, ensuring the start and finish of their holiday is as simple and easy as possible.”
However, it should be noted that many destinations are likely to require a PCT test, which can’t be taken on the day of travel due to the amount of time it takes to get the results.
