Fast, free and unconstrained screening

Lyon Airport has set up an antigen testing service in its medical center, on the ground floor  of the Arc building (in the immediate vicinity of Terminal 2).
This service is reserved for passengers with a ticket for a departing flight within a maximum of 72 hours or an arriving flight the same day. 

  • This screening is free, voluntary-based and without prior appointment.
  • The results, which do not require laboratory analysis, are available  within 30 minutes.
  • Passengers will receive a hard-copy proof at the end of their test.

So do not hesitate: get tested!

For tests  performed on the  departure day, we recommend that you arrive at the airport in advance before your flight.
