Singapore Airlines Ltd. has set up pre-departure coronavirus tests for passengers through its booking platforms as part of efforts to revive travel demand destroyed by the pandemic.
People flying from Singapore as well as those traveling to the city-state from Jakarta and Medan in Indonesia can take tests at clinics and get results within 36 hours. If negative, they can be used for travel, according to a statement from Collinson Group, which is working with Singapore Airlines on the program.
The trial service began on Jan 19 and is due to run until mid-March. Collinson said it has performed more than 90,000 Covid-19 tests for travelers in partnership with airlines and several UK airports, including London Heathrow.
