Singapore Airlines has sealed a partnership with Collinson to roll out an online pre-departure Covid-19 test booking portal.
Singapore Airlines customers departing from the UK will be able to book their pre-departure Covid-19 PCR test via a dedicated online booking portal, operated by Collinson.
The expansion sees the UK become the fourth Singapore Airlines market to benefit from the pre-departure test service after Singapore, Indonesia and Hong Kong.
With pre-departure testing now a mandatory and frequently evolving requirement for many countries, this new service makes it easier for Singapore Airlines’ UK customers to obtain and demonstrate the correct testing documentation required for their travel journey.
Customers will be directed to book their pre-departure test securely via Collinson’s online booking portal after making their flight bookings.
Collinson operates accredited medical facilities located across six major airports, including London Heathrow, Manchester, Luton, Stansted, London City and East-Midlands.
In addition, a testing facility is available at the 02 Arena. Tests are priced at £99 for the RT-PCR swab test.
Within 36 hours, customers will receive their test results through the same secure portal, which will then generate a digital certificate and a QR code which will be verified by airport staff upon check-in.
The link for customers to access the portal will be featured across the Singapore Airlines website and SingaporeAir mobile app, as well as being included in customers’ booking confirmation and pre-departure emails.
Todd Handcock, President, Asia Pacific, Collinson said: “Testing remains crucial to reopening global borders. This new pre-departure testing service for Singapore Airlines’ UK passengers is an extension of our partnership, which saw the testing service launch in Singapore, Indonesia and Hong Kong in recent months.”
Last week, Collinson was announced as the first private sector testing provider in the UK to offer the mandatory Covid-19 tests required for all arrivals into the UK.
