Finnair expands its corona testing service and will also offer PCR testing at a price of 99 euros. A negative corona test certificate is a prerequisite for entry in several countries, especially if the passenger has not been fully vaccinated. Finnair has previously introduced rapid antigen testing near Helsinki Airport, which costs 65 euros.
Testing is handled by Finnair Health Services and it’s available by appointment from 28 September onwards at Finnair’s headquarters in Vantaa near the airport at Tietotie 9. The test can be booked online at finnairtest.mbooking.fi. The booking can be made with a Finnish personal identity code, or with a date of birth. The test result and certificate in English are delivered electronically by the following morning at 9 am. The results are also available in My Kanta in Finland.
“Our customers have found Finnair’s corona testing service well, and we are pleased to be able to expand our offering with PCR tests. Especially when traveling to many Asian countries, a PCR test certificate is required even if you have been fully vaccinated”, says Kaarlo Karvonen, Finnair’s Head of Security. “Testing in Finland is still more expensive than in many other countries, and we want to support increase of travel by offering affordable tests.”
The entry requirements of different countries can be checked on the travel restrictions map on Finnair’s website or the websites of the authorities of the countries. More information about the service is available on finnair.com.
