COVID-19 testing facilities


Book your COVID-19 test before you fly

Many destinations require passengers travelling to have a negative test result to enter the country or to reduce quarantine time. Cardiff Airport has partnered with Nuffield Health to provide a COVID-19 testing facility at the Airport, allowing customers to get tested before their flight. The testing centre is also open to the general public who wish to get tested for non-travel related purposes. 

Nuffield Health is offering PCR Tests, Lateral Flow Tests and Rapid PCR Tests. Please ensure that you book the correct type of test that meets your destination’s entry requirements.

If you suspect you may have Coronavirus, or are displaying symptoms of COVID-19, please do not travel to the Airport. In this case, you must follow Public Health Wales advice, self-isolate and book an NHS COVID-19 test. Please click here for guidance.

Travellers must not use NHS testing facilities for travel-related purposes.

The testing centre is also open to the general public who wish to get tested for non-travel related purposes. 

The booking link below will take you to our partner, Nuffield Health’s website to book your test.
