Manchester Airport Fit to Fly COVID Test
Manchester Aiport COVID Testing
We get multiple enquiries from customers regarding testing at Manchester Airport. Manchester Airport provides limited testing within its car park. However, we recommend that customers get tested prior to arriving at the airport. This is because if there are delays with the airport test or the results come back as “positive” then the traveller will not be able to board the plane. Therefore we recommend you attend our clinic located in central Manchester a couple of days prior to your travel date.
