United will give free airport COVID-19 tests on select flights to London: ‘We have to show that it works’

  • October 29, 2020

United Airlines passengers flying from New Jersey to London will undergo a mandatory COVID-19 test at the airport beginning next week in an experiment the airline hopes jump-starts international travel.

The good news for passengers: the test, required of all passengers over age 2 on select flights from Newark, is free.Other airport and airline COVID-19 test options are as pricey as $250 per person for on-site tests.

The bad news: passengers with negative test results won’t be able to bypass a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival in London, as they can on flights to Hawaii as of Oct. 15. (Passengers testing positive will not be allowed to board and will receive a refund.)

United executives said the goal of the pilot program, which will be offered three days a week on Flight 14 between Nov. 16 and Dec. 11, is two-pronged.
