TUI AG has recently announced it will offer subsidized Covid-19 tests for passengers buying package holidays this summer. The move is expected to “make travel a possibility.”
As testing requirements might have made summer holidays too expensive for many people, the airline decided to encourage people to travel by providing financial help.
According to TUI, the prices for its new packages will range from £20-£90 depending on the preferred route. The first two packages target those flying to green countries.
The package for £20 will consist of a lateral flow test and PCR test, which will soon be required to visit England from green list destinations. A £50 package will provide an additional PCR test, which passengers from amber countries will need. A typical cost of a PCR test is £120 each.
Andrew Flintham, Tui’s managing director for the UK and Ireland, said: “We have always believed that cost-effective testing solutions, as well as maximum flexibility, will make travel a possibility this summer and beyond.“
