United Airlines To Offer Free COVID-19 Tests For Passengers

The airline is trialing the program on three flights a week for four weeks, starting November 16.

This makes United the first US airline to offer free testing on flights across the Atlantic.

The nasal swab tests will produce results for waiting passengers in around 30 minutes.

Passengers who refuse testing won't be allowed to board the flight.
