British Airways offers discounted rapid antigen tests
British Airways has partnered with testing provider Qured to offer discounted rapid antigen test kits to its customers.
The discounted “ultra-convenient” portable kits use a diagnostic lateral flow device (LFD) to detect a protein found inside the virus. According to Qured, the LFDs that it uses have been independently validated by Public Health England.
Customers can use the kits to travel to foreign destinations that accept antigen tests and can also carry the kits abroad in preparation for their return journey to the UK. As it stands, travellers must provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours before travel to be allowed entry to the UK.
BA customers can purchase as many kits as they like, but the airline advises that customers check the entry requirements of their destination before ordering the test due to the regularly changing travel restrictions.
