Lyon Airport introduces an antigen testing service
2 new COVID-19 screening centers at the airport
Antigen tests are now available for passengers arriving and departing from the airport
Since November 7, 2 antigen testing centers have been open at the airport in coordination with the ARS (Regional Health Agency) and the Prefecture of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
Fast, free and unconstrained screening
Lyon Airport has set up 2 antigen testing centers :
1. At its medical center, on the ground floor of the Arc building (in the immediate vicinity of Terminal 2).
This service is reserved in priority 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.
2. At the Hall R of the airside at Terminal 2.
The service is exclusively reserved for passengers arriving from countries identified as red zone. Please, consult the full list of respective countries on France Diplomacy website here.
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 (at least 1,5 hour before your usual arrival).
