American Airlines and British Airways have partnered with American Express Global Business Travel and global Covid-19 testing provider Qured to offer complimentary test kits to premium business travelers.

Business passengers who book premium seats on either American Airlines or British Airways flights between the U.S. and U.K., departing from either country, through GBT will be eligible to receive a rapid antigen test kit, which is approved for use by both the U.S. and U.K. governments.

GBT will provide qualified travelers with a unique promotional code after their travel is ticketed. They can use the code to order from the Qured website, with kits delivered to the location or locations specified on their itinerary. Eligible customers can begin ordering the tests in 2022 for travel through the end of the year.

Tests are completed remotely through a supervised video call scheduled with and administered by a professional health advisor, according to American Airlines. Results are available within 20 minutes of swabbing, and electronic verified results are shared with the patient within two hours of their remote consultation.
