COVID-19 Testing


Newcastle Airport is working in collaboration with two local COVID-19 testing companies to provide convenient, efficient and cost-effective COVID-19 tests for passengers who require them.

NPH Group are able to offer pre-departure COVID-19 Fit to Fly PCR tests and Rapid Antigen tests at their facility located within the Airport. They are also on the Government approved list of suppliers for the Test to Release scheme. 


Green List Countries

Departing from the UK: Depending on the destination travelling to, passengers may be required to take a PCR test and produce a Fit to Fly certificate up to 48-72 hours prior to travelling to or arriving at their destination. We recommend passengers check entry requirements for their destination online using the Government Foreign Travel Advice website.

Returning to the UK: All passengers returning from a Green List destination will be required to take a pre-departure test prior to boarding the aircraft to the UK and also undertake a PCR test on or before Day 2 of arrival back to UK.

For information on the testing requirements for Amber or Red List countries, please visit the GOV.UK website.
