Free testing guarantees all customers over 2 years old and crew on board have tested negative before departure
NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 13, 2020 /3BL Media/ -- United Airlines recently announced the world's first free transatlantic COVID-19 testing pilot program for customers. From November 16 through December 11, the airline will offer rapid tests to every passenger over 2 years old and crew members on board select flights from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to London Heathrow (LHR), free of charge. Anyone who does not wish to be tested will be placed on another flight, guaranteeing everyone on board other than children under two will have tested negative before departure.
One year ago, Heathrow launched its plan for sustainable growth. Representing a step-change in approach, Heathrow 2.0 demonstrates leadership, both within the aviation sector and beyond, and goes further than merely reducing negative impacts to delivering real, positive change.
Heathrow’s first update on progress made so far in meeting the goals set out in Heathrow 2.0 explores highlights and challenges face in implementing the plan.
