What are Fit to Fly Antigen Home Test Kits?

Antigens are any substance for which your body produces antibodies to fight against. They can range from pollen to viruses. A lateral flow antigen test is designed to test for antigens in your blood. These tests can be attuned for specific antigens, including particles related to someone infected with Covid 19. A "fit to fly" antigen home test is a test that allows you to test for these antigens, at home. A lateral flow test with certificate is issued when you have a negative test result.

We have lateral flow tests for sale here at UK Meds. If all you require is a negative test result, you can have a test overnight-shipped and get your result within 15 minutes by ordering lateral flow tests to buy from UK Meds.

What is a "Fit to Fly" Certificate UK?

A fit to travel certificate, or a "fit to fly letter", is a medical certificate written by a doctor confirming your fitness to fly. A certificate that you are "fit to fly" requires a negative result from a Covid-19 test. The test should be taken within two days of when you expect to fly. You can receive a certificate from the convenience of your home via email by using our rapid antigen test to fly.

Is a Covid-19 test required to enter the UK?

At the time of writing (February 7, 2022) the UK government suggests that you be prepared to show a negative Covid-19 result or provide Covid-19 vaccination status as you enter the UK.

Going through border control

You may need to show paperwork such as your passport or visa. You may also need a negative COVID-19 test result or to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status at the point of entry.

You can double check this requirement at this link to verify that it is still recommended when you expect to fly.

Can I get a private lateral flow test for travel?

Verify with your airline, prior to flight, whether you need a Fit to Fly Certificate, or if a simple negative test result is sufficient. Our lateral flow tests provide results within 15 minutes and may suffice as enough for an airline if they are currently requiring a Covid test result prior to flight. If they allow you to take your own test prior to flight, the test result should remain private as only you and an airline assistant would see the result. If your goal is to prevent a potential positive test result from going into a database, this is the best option. This private lateral flow test for travel can be purchased from UK Meds.

Can I take a home antigen test to fly?

Sometimes an airline may require a fit to fly certificate. This is also known as a fit to fly letter. These are generated by a general practitioner that you meet in person (or a GP who will review your test and provide the result via email). If an airline requires this, you should take home antigen tests that provide a certificate. Again, lft tests here at UK Meds cost approximately £5 for just a test, and less than £20 for one that also provides a fit to fly certificate.
