What does "fit to fly" mean? By taking an antigen test and having the results viewed by a lab, you can be certified as "fit to fly". This will allow you to travel on a flight to or from the UK. You should speak to the airline where you book your flight as to their exact requirements. Typically, you will only be required to test if you are not fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated, you will need a lateral flow test to fly. A rapid antigen test, also known as a lateral flow test, can tell you whether you currently have Covid-19.

If you are flying and are uncertain whether your airline requires a fit to fly certificate, contact them prior to flight. Some airlines only require a negative test result on a lateral flow test. Others may require the test to be reviewed by a doctor, who then issues a letter that you are fit to fly. Both lateral flow tests and testing kits that include certificates are available at the top of this page.

Are lateral flow tests private?

If you are looking for a private lateral flow test, it will depend on your purpose for testing. If you need a Fit to Fly certificate, there are many individuals that must be included in the process (a doctor needs to review your test result to issue the certificate, and an individual at your airline will need to review the certificate to determine you are fit to fly). You can ask your airline whether they store your test results if privacy is a concern.

Many airlines do not require a fit to fly certificate in order to travel, opting to allow you to do a simple lateral flow test prior to flight. If your airline only verifies you have a negative result prior to flight, without recording your test results, then your test result may remain private.
