Health and wellness company XpresSpa has commenced the construction of an XpresCheck Covid-19 testing centre at Denver International Airport in the US.

The centre is expected to start operations mid this month.

The pop-up facility will be built in the Concourse B of the airport post-security in the Brookstone location, which is now closed.

The facility is expected to have six separate testing rooms with the capacity to administer more than 400 tests each day. The facility will offer both Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and rapid molecular testing.

XpresSpa CEO Doug Satzman said: “As cases continue to rise in Colorado and throughout the country, we are pleased to launch XpresCheck at Denver International Airport, which will be our first pop-up location and fifth Covid-19 testing facility across the country.

“This new pop-up building methodology will enable us to accelerate our rollout to additional airports at a lower cost than our original modular constructed facilities at JFK, Newark, and Logan airports.

“While our current focus is providing convenient, reliable Covid-19 testing and related medical services, our long-term goal is to become the leading provider in the travel, health and wellness category by helping people manage medical conditions as they pass through the largest US airports.”

Last month, XpresSpa Group, along with City of Phoenix Aviation Department, opened an XpresCheck Covid-19 testing centre at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Arizona, the US.

In August, XpresSpa signed a contract with Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) to provide Covid-19 screening and testing at Newark Liberty International Airport in the US.
