Tampa International Airport Claims It’s the First to Offer Covid-19 Testing to All Passengers

Throughout the month of October, any passenger traveling to or from Tampa International Airport can be tested for COVID-19, regardless of which airline they are flying.

Testing is open to anyone who plans to fly in the next three days – and even passengers who flew in the past three days – and can show proof of travel.

Passengers can opt for a PCR (nasal swab) test for $125, or an antigen test, which costs $57.

Passengers who need a negative PCR test to enter their destination or bypass a quarantine should schedule their test three days before travel, the airport advised in a Tuesday press release. Results are expected within 48 hours.

Antigen test results produce results within 15 minutes but are most accurate within five days of the onset of symptoms, the airport noted. The FDA has also noted that there is a higher likelihood of a false negative result with an antigen test.
