MarketPlace Development, the contractor supervising the concessions programme at both airports, will administer the agreement.

MWAA president and CEO John Potter said: “We have seen growing interest from airport customers in having Covid testing in airports as more countries require visitors to have a negative Covid test prior to travelling.”

The pop-up facility at Dulles International Airport is situated pre-security in the main terminal on the baggage claim level.

This testing centre has nine separate rooms and can conduct more than 500 tests a day.

Reagan National Airport also has a pop-up testing facility in the current XpresSpa location before security in National Hall near Terminal B.

With four separate testing rooms, this facility can conduct more than 300 tests a day.

XpresSpa CEO Doug Satzman said: “We are pleased to have opened these two XpresCheck facilities in Washington, DC. Our focus remains to provide reliable and convenient testing for all airline employees and passengers to ensure they feel safe and confident when travelling through our nation’s capital.”

Both the testing centres provide rapid molecular Covid-19 and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.

The rapid Covid-19 test provides instant results, whereas the PCR test results are given within three days.

Although health insurance is not accepted on-site, the documentation will allow testing claims to be sent directly by the customer to health insurance firms.

Both tests are available by appointment or on a walk-in basis.
