Meeting the Covid-19 challenge head on

Over the past year, a global pandemic on a scale previously unseen in our lifetimes changed the world as we know it. People were told to stay home. Travel stopped. Fear reigned. Transactions hit rock bottom.

During this time, Collinson has shown it is committed to getting the world travelling safely again, making great strides across various initiatives.

Airport testing, the key to travel recovery

Crucial to global travel recovery is testing at borders. Testing enables travellers to cross borders with confidence, helping to boost both leisure and business travel. It removes the need for ‘quarantine roulette’ and can provide accurate real time information for national governments and public health departments. Complimenting broader national testing strategies and giving a welcome boost to world economies. Collinson, alongside its airport and medical partners (including Swissport and The Commons Project (CommonPass)) is currently exploring a number of initiatives with airports, aviation brands and governments across the world.


Inbound testing at Heathrow Airport

In partnership with Swissport, Collinson has installed an Inbound PCR testing facility at Terminal 2, Heathrow Airport. Subject to government approval, Collinson is ready to kick off a national testing pilot.

For travellers who test positive, they simply quarantine as country-specific legislation dictates. And for travellers who test negative, they continue about their lives, free from quarantine. It’s a simple and science-led solution to Covid-19 and its devastating impact on global economies and the wider travel industry. An approach currently successfully adopted in over 30+ countries around the world, vastly reducing the need for blanket country travel quarantines.

Now-live: Outbound testing at Heathrow Airport

In partnership with Swissport, Collinson has opened the UK’s first pre-departure rapid LAMP testing facilities at Heathrow Airport. The industry-leading testing facilities are a critical step in the sector’s recovery, restoring traveller confidence and re-opening routes from the UK to the rest of the world. 

The facilities, located in Terminals 2 and 5, will initially offer passengers travelling to Hong Kong the option to fulfil the countries’ pre-departure testing requirements at the airport. Hong Kong currently requires passengers to provide evidence of a negative COVID test prior to departure, but allow for testing technologies that can deliver fast results.
