SkyTeam partners with TrustAssure™ to Launch Global Online Testing Labs Locator

Testing location finder makes it easier for customers to secure pre- and post-travel COVID-19 tests from trusted health providers

Amsterdam, 15 February 2021 - SkyTeam, the global airline alliance, is facilitating customer access to COVID-19 tests with a new online directory of over 15,000 testing locations worldwide.  The Testing Labs Locator, powered by TrustAssure, enables customers to find and book the COVID-19 test they need with a trusted health provider, including polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, in a matter of clicks.

SkyTeam’s Testing Labs Locator highlights a growing number of testing locations servicing hundreds of cities in over 75 countries where travelers can secure a necessary test before or after they fly. The new tool is available on SkyTeam.com and will be rolled out across many member airlines’ websites. Taking the guesswork out of travel, the Testing Labs Locator gives customers information including:

  • Test location address, contact details, opening hours and website.
  • Available tests, highlighting labs offering PCR tests - the most broadly required for travel - now mandatory for an increasing number of countries worldwide.
  • Link to book test at their preferred location, where available.

 

“As more and more countries mandate negative COVID-19 test results on departure and arrival, partnering with TrustAssure makes it easier to find a reliable testing location so customers can travel with greater peace of mind,” said Kristin Colvile, SkyTeam CEO. “SkyTeam has long advocated for health technology solutions to help restore confidence in the safety of international air travel. We will continue to expand our offering with TrustAssure and other health providers to ensure a seamless and safe travel experience for our customers and employees.”

The TrustAssure platform offers consumers access to the latest testing location data around the world. It is powered by U.S-based CLX Health, developer of solutions that bridge the gap between medicine and information technology to benefit the general public.

Glenn Field, CEO for CLX Health stated, “The TrustAssure platform features a global directory of 15,000 plus verified Covid-19 test sites in over 75 countries. Our solution suite provides users of our platform with access to partners, products, and protocols designed to meet the destination requirements necessary for travel worldwide. We are truly honored to be partnering with SkyTeam to assist in providing a clinically sound travel experience “

SkyTeam's Testing Labs Locator is the latest in a series of health and hygiene measures that the alliance airlines have put in place since June 2020 to keep customers safer when they fly. Known as SkyCare&Protect, this alliance-wide pledge to safety includes rigorous cleanliness and sanitization protocols, as well as developing innovative technology to ensure the safest, most seamless travel experience at every step.
