Several EU countries now require travellers to have a negative Covid-19 test as a requirement for entry. To make travel more accessible to more people, Finnair has arranged a rapid antigen test that costs €65 and is available from August 4.
Testing is handled by Finnair Health Services and is available at their headquarters in Vantaa near the airport at Tietotie 9. The booking can be made with a Finnish personal identity code, or your date of birth. The test result and certificate in English are delivered electronically within two hours. The results are also available in My Kanta in Finland.
Kaarlo Karvonen, head of security, Finnair said in a statement that pre-testing is a prerequisite for safe travel in many countries and it is essential for it to be affordable and reasonably priced for anyone who wants to travel. He mentioned that Finnair’s new rapid antigen testing service smoothens the journey and is a good option for tourists arriving in Finland who need a negative corona test certificate for their return journey.
