Istanbul Airport rolls out PCR, Antigen and Antibody Tests for Covid-19

Istanbul Airport once again stands out for its provision of outstanding passenger
services. Following the opening of its PCR test centre last summer, the global hub
has also begun Antibody and Antigen testing.

Alongside the PCR testing service, Istanbul Airport Test Centre has also begun Antibody and Antigen testing service, serving passengers 24/7 with results turned around quickly at the centre.

Passengers who wish to have Antibody and Antigen testing performed as part of the
travel requirements of the countries they are travelling to, or for precautionary purposes, can benefit from these services prior to their flights at the airport.

Having a blood test, the Antibody test is used to determine whether a passenger has
had the coronavirus (COVID-19) infection before, and the Antigen test, which is used to
determine whether an individual still has the virus, all results can be obtained within a
maximum of four hours at the Istanbul Airport Test Centre.

The 5,000m² PCR Testing Centre inside Istanbul Airport’s terminal has a daily testing
capacity of 12,000 PCR tests with 1,500 PCR tests currently being performed per
day. PCR results are rapidly available within two to four hours, the tests being concluded in laboratories established at Istanbul Airport.
