Rapid one-hour Covid tests begin at Heathrow airport


Passengers flying from London Heathrow to Hong Kong and Italy will now be able to get rapid coronavirus tests before checking in.

The test, which can be booked online from Tuesday, costs £80 ($104), and results will be available within 60 minutes.

The aim of the test is to help people traveling to destinations where proof of a negative result is needed on arrival.

Authorities in Hong Kong require passengers to provide a negative COVID-19 test result before they are allowed in, while those arriving in Italy from the U.K. need to either show that they have had a negative coronavirus test before departure or take a test on arrival at an airport.
