(29 Sep 2021) Finnair has expanded its COVID19 testing service by offering PCR tests for 99 Euros.
A negative test certificate is a prerequisite for entry to several countries, especially if the passenger has not been fully vaccinated.
Finnair already offered rapid antigen testing near Helsinki Airport for 65 Euros.
Testing is handled by Finnair Health Services at Finnair’s headquarters in Vantaa near the airport at Tietotie 9.
The test can be booked online by providing a Finnish personal identity code, or a date of birth.
The test result and certificate in English are delivered electronically by 09:00 the following morning. The results are also available in My Kanta in Finland.
“Our customers have found Finnair’s corona testing service very useful, and we are pleased to be able to expand our offering with PCR tests. Especially when traveling to many Asian countries, a PCR test certificate is required even if you have been fully vaccinated,” said Kaarlo Karvonen, Finnair’s Head of Security. “Testing in Finland is still more expensive than in many other countries, and we want to support increase of travel by offering affordable tests.”
