Memmingen Airport is expanding its Corona test offering. In addition to the previous free PCR tests, there is now a new antigen rapid test centre as well as further paid test options for international passengers.
For all citizens residing in Germany, the new antigen rapid test centre of the company EcoCare is now open daily from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. in a tent next to the car park P1 near the terminal. The results of the free tests are sent by e-mail in German within 15 to 20 minutes. Pre-registration is required for the rapid test centre as well as for the PCR test centre, which has been open daily from 6 a.m. to midnight for some time now and is located in a former noise protection hall next to the P1 car park. There, as a special service of the Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Care, PCR testing is available free of charge to all citizens and passengers regardless of their place of residence. The results are usually transmitted within 24 hours. German-language Corona findings from the PCR test centre can be translated into English at Memmingen Airport for a fee – either as an express translation within 60 minutes or within 24 hours.
For the large number of international passengers, another testing service is now also available. “With this, we offer all our passengers and also the citizens from the region a comprehensive and efficient service,” explains Andreas Loritz, Head of Non-Aviation at Memmingen Airport. “Alongside vaccination, testing is the decisive factor that will boost air traffic again,” he emphasises.
The company EcoCare additionally offers PCR tests and antigen and antibody rapid tests at Memmingen Airport for a fee. These tests are also carried out in the antigen rapid test centre. Smear tests are also carried out on children from the age of three. For all of these tests, registration is required at flughafen-memmingen.ecocare.center. For the free PCR tests, the address for registration is form.ecolog-international.com, as before. During the test, the airport car park P1 is available (ten minutes free of charge).
