COVID-19 Testing at Leeds Bradford Airport

COVID-19 testing:

If you are travelling abroad, some countries now require a negative COVID-19 swab test and ‘Fit To Fly’ certificate to prove that you do not have the virus prior to travelling.

We also provide ‘General PCR Testing’ (which you can book using the Fit to Fly option) for non-travel reasons to support businesses in the local community.

You can pre-book your ‘Fit To Fly’, ‘Rapid Antigen’ or ‘Test to Release’ below, but first there are a few more things you might like to know:

  • The testing centre for PCR Fit to Fly, General PCR, and Test to Release is in the Viking Airport Parking Building at Leeds Bradford Airport
  • For Rapid Antigen testing, the facility is located in the main terminal building next to Check In Hall A 
  • You must bring your passport to your appointment
  • For PCR Fit to Fly and PCR Test to Release, parking is FREE
  • There will be friendly airport staff on hand to help
  • PCR test costs £110 per person and results are provided by email within 48 hours of the test date and time
  • Rapid Antigen test costs £60 per person and results will be emailed to you within 1 hour after your appointment time
  • Test to Release test costs £110 per person and results are provided by email within 48 hours of the test date and time
  • Qualified clinicians carry out the test
  • Tests are analysed in our quality approved laboratory (PCR only)

Important information

Arriving in the UK from abroad:

NPH Group will be offering people entering the UK from abroad, who are self-isolating at home (those not travelling from countries on the red list) additional PCR tests;

  • Day 5 Test to Release – which will allow people to release themselves from quarantine after 5 days – providing they have a negative test result.
  • Day 2 and Day 8 Testing – All international arrivals in quarantine are required to take a test on or before day 2 (of their quarantine period), and a test on or after day 8 (of their quarantine period).

*Please note – NPH Group will not be supporting hotels with tests for guests.

Rapid antigen testing:

As well as a PCR Fit to Fly test, some countries require proof that passengers have tested negative for COVID-19 following a Rapid Antigen Test taken before boarding the aircraft.

To allow for a Rapid Antigen appointment, travellers should add at least one hour onto their travelling time.
Passengers must have their boarding pass and passport available.

Test to release:

We now provide the new ‘Test to Release’ scheme for people who want to exit self-isolation on arrival in England, after 5 days.

NPH Group is a Government approved provider of this service.

This scheme allows passengers arriving into the UK from a destination that does not have a Travel Corridor to take a test after 5 days, and if negative, be released from the 10-day quarantine restriction.

Please do not book a ‘Fit To Fly’ as a ‘Test To Release’ as this cannot be accepted by the authorities.

Book appointment(s):

As well as booking a PCR for Fit to Fly, you can also book a General PCR test by using the Fit to Fly option.

Please take special care when booking your test date and time.
*It is your responsibility to book the correct date and time of your appointment, so please check with your airline for specific requirements.

N.B. You must attend your appointment on time to avoid other people waiting and to ensure you can be seen within the planned staff shift. You may not be seen if you are late and this will be at the discretion of the clinical staff. If you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment, your booking will be cancelled and no refund will be issued.
