Passengers will be able to book Boots’ tests via the easyJet website
EasyJet has announced that it is partnering with Boots UK to offer a more streamlined service to find and book a convenient Covid-19 test for all the requirements needed both before and after travel.
The airline is offering this service from 18 UK airports and over 200 Boots branches, providing in-store testing for around £85 with passengers able to pick up at-home self-swab PCR tests for £65 at over 500 stores or Boots online.
Tests results are returned within 24-48 hours and additionally, customers who are travelling to countries that accept rapid (antigen) tests can book in store tests for £59, providing same-day results from 30 Boots locations.
Boots is an accredited provider of tests for the UK government’s test to release scheme, allowing travellers from amber list countries to forego the required 10-day self-isolation if they return negative tests on days two and five of their return.
Sophie Dekkers, CCO at easyJet, commented: “At easyJet we’re focussed on ensuring travel is easy and accessible for all and that is especially important this summer. We’re delighted to be partnering with Boots to provide customers with more direct access to trusted testing services, making it easier to travel with us this summer.”
Asif Aziz, director of healthcare services at Boots UK, added: “This new partnership between Boots and easyJet is designed to make lives easier for people who are travelling abroad this summer. At Boots we are proud of our COVID-19 travel testing offer, which provides a range of options to customers, available online and in our stores.”
