The airline group Lufthansa will begin on November 12 first rapid tests for Covid-19 antigens on flights between Munich and Hamburg in collaboration with the airports of those cities, as well as with the biotech companies Centogene and the medical care center of the Medicover group, MVZ Martinsried.

Lufthansa has reported this Monday that it offers its customers the opportunity to be tested for Covid-19 for free before departure on two daily flights. “Passengers who do not wish to pass the test will be transferred to an alternative flight at no additional cost,” Lufthansa said.

The first test flight with passengers who have passed the test and are one hundred percent negative is the LH2058, which leaves Munich for Hamburg at 9.10 am (08.10 GMT). The second daily flight on which all passengers will have been tested is LH2059 from Hamburg to Munich.

Results will take up to an hour

After testing, passengers receive the results within 30 to 60 minutes. Only if the result is negative will the boarding pass be activated and access to the door will be granted. Alternatively, passengers can submit a negative PCR test performed no more than 48 hours prior to flight departure.

Lufthansa takes care of the complete rapid test procedure. There are no additional costs for the passenger. All they have to do is register in advance and arrive a little longer than the departure time.

“With our testing strategy, we are pursuing the goal of using the information gathered to help with important insights into the use of rapid tests. Successful full-flight testing may be the key to revitalizing international air traffic. “says Director of Clients, Information Technology and Corporate Responsibility, Christina Foerster.
