Cignpost introduces rapid Covid tests at selected locations

Cignpost ExpressTest has launched rapid same-day Covid testing services at selected airports and in central London.

Business travellers can now get results for PCR tests in as little as four hours at Heathrow T2 and T5, Gatwick and Birmingham airports, plus St Paul’s in the capital.

Samples are taken by trained swabbers and analysed on site at the company’s fully-accredited laboratories, with Fit to Fly certificates confirming the result by email within four hours.

Tests cost from £119 and must be booked in advance.

The company has also added same-day PCR results at Heathrow T4 and Edinburgh airport, plus in-person testing centres in Belfast and across London.

The Same Day PCR test costs from £85 when booked in advance.

Meanwhile lateral flow tests can be taken on site, with confirmed results in 40 minutes, or home tests with Fit to Fly certificates supplied in two hours.

Nick Markham, Co-Founder at Cignpost ExpressTest, said: “While the UK government has removed testing requirements for fully vaccinated arrivals, there’s a mind-boggling array of Covid rules for business destinations across Europe and the world.

“Our range of PCR and lateral flow tests ensures travellers can get the right tests at the right time and will help keep people travelling smoothly.”
