Air Canada to provide antigen tests for customers

Air Canada has teamed up with Canadian health care provider Switch Health to make antigen test kits available for purchase.

The self-administered antigen test will allow customers to meet new U.S. government entry requirements that travellers present a negative COVID-19 test taken not more than one day prior to departure.

The test result takes about 15 minutes to complete.

The self-administered test can be taken from the comfort of the customer’s home or accommodation, within one day prior to departure.

The test is conducted under the remote supervision of a telehealth professional from Switch Health and includes an electronic report suitable for travel.

Customers can order the Switch Health Rapid Antigen Test Kit (which includes two tests) at switchhealth.ca/aeroplan or redeem at aircanada.com/estore.

“With government restrictions evolving around the world, we want to simplify the experience and provide customers with easy and effective testing solutions,” said Mark Nasr, Senior Vice President, Products Marketing & eCommerce at Air Canada.

“We’re also sending new, customized e-mails within five days of departure, detailing the travel, entry and testing requirements specific to any itinerary, for travel everywhere throughout the globe.”
