Many airlines are now requiring “fit to fly” certification prior to travel. Fit to Fly certification is proof that you have had a test to travel – undergone a Rapid Lateral Flow Antigen Test and passed within 48 hours of departure. This safety measure is being put in place by many airlines in order to improve traveller confidence and to ensure the safety of their passengers and members of staff.

The Rapid Antigen test consists solely of a nasal swab and takes only 15 minutes. Testing is carried out at PillBox Pharmacy by one of our fully trained pharmacists, ensuring accurate results and safeguarding against cross contamination. We will require a copy of your passport details and flight number.

All results are available within 15 minutes of testing and the time / date and outcome of your test will printed on site along with your Fit to Fly Certificate. Testing results and certification can then be presented to the respective airline.

This test is applicable for those that require testing for AIR TRAVEL, WORK or similar purposes.
