EasyJet offers customers discounted Covid tests EasyJet cabin bag allowance
EasyJet has entered into partnerships with two Covid testing firms to offer customers booking flights and holidays discounted tests. From later this week clients will be given a unique code to book tests with Confirm Testing and City Doc.
Home test kits cost £75 with Confirm Testing, down from £119, while in clinic tests with CityDoc are reduced from £200 to £150 with the code. CityDoc also offers home test kits to easyJet customers for £100.
TUI is also discounting home kits, which cost £84 when booked using a discount code on the TUI website, but this is available to all holidaymakers, not just TUI customers.
Wizz also has a discount code for Confirm Testing kits on its website, which reduces the cost to £84.
And Club Med has also announced today that it will offer clients discounted tests with Randox, bringing the cost down to £95.
EasyJet CEO Johan Lundgren said: “I’m really pleased to be able to offer our customers convenient testing options at cheaper rates than are widely available on the market.
“This, coupled with the news that quarantine can be reduced with a negative test, is a key step towards travel getting back to normal.”
The discounts are for PCR tests but Johan said the airline was continuing to push for testing the efficacy of the cheaper, faster antigen and LAMP tests, which could be taken at airports on departure. EasyJet cabin bag allowance
Several airports including Gatwick, Edinburgh and Newcastle have introduced drive-through test centres with subsidised rates starting from £60 for passengers, but capacity is severely limited.
