Luxembourg Findel Airport (LUX) is offering arriving passengers the chance to get tested for the deadly coronavirus for free. The Ministry of Mobility and Public Works announced that arriving passengers could get tested at the airport or any COVID-19 testing center in the country.

The project, a joint venture between the airport and the government, is expected to last one month but could be extended depending upon the circumstances.

Arriving passengers will be given a voucher for testing

Arriving passengers will receive a voucher at the airport that is valid for seven days to be tested for the coronavirus at a testing center of their choosing. Those not wishing to get tested at the airport can use one of the 17 drive-through, cycle-through, or walk-through test centers. Once checked, arriving passengers will receive the results electronically within seven days. If the test proves positive, the infected person must say who they have been in contact with, and standard 14-day self-quarantine rules will apply.

Luxembourg Airport has only been open for a select number of European visitors, mainly made up of returning residents. The country is, however, expected to open up to non-European visitors starting June 15.
