British Airways has announced the launch of a voluntary Covid-19 test for passengers travelling to the UK from three US airports.
British Airways chief executive Sean Doyle said: “If we have a testing formula it gives people certainty from which they can plan.”
The trial begins on 25 November and will be free to eligible customers on three flights:
American Airlines flight AA50 from Dallas Fort Worth to Heathrow
British Airways flight BA268 from Los Angeles to Heathrow
And British Airways flight BA114 from New York John F. Kennedy to Heathrow.
Customers will be tested 72 hours before their trip, as well as during and after travelling.
