Lufthansa has geared up to safely transfer thousands of passengers this summer’s travel season. The airline group (including Austrian, and Swiss), is offering customers to automatically order a COVID-19 home rapid testing kits ahead of any flight within Europe. Thanks to collaborations with companies like testFRWD, the Austrian startup providing AI-powered solutions for self-certifying COVID-19 tests, passengers can purchase the most affordable test kit seamlessly when booking their trip.
All a traveler has to do when booking a flight with Lufthansa Group is select the testFRWD rapid antigen home test from the website, choose a location for delivery, and perform the test. testFRWD is paired with the identyME app, so travelers can independently collect a sample for the COVID-19 test and depending on the test type, either send it to a lab for rapid processing or read in the results through the phone’s camera. Once results are in, the platform will issue an official certificate to present before boarding a flight.
