Airports offering Covid-19 tests

Travellers will have to get accustomed to testing requirements should they wish to go on work or leisure trips before the various vaccines are fully rolled out. To encourage the recovery of global travel, airports worldwide are setting up COVID-19 test centres ranging from walk-in and drive-through facilities to rapid testing in departure and arrival lounges. Here we round up some of the UK and European airports offering such services.
