Pre-Flight Testing Options (Antigen & PCR/RT-LAMP)
It is important that you plan ahead and book any pre-flight testing well in advance to ensure that you get appointments that will work with your driving or flight schedule.
In Canada pre-flight testing can be done in some provinces at Life Labs. There are also several clinics with multiple locations including CVM Medical (which has a location at YVR that opens at 5:30am) & Rock Doc plus more options below.
Self administered tests can now be purchased through switchhealth.ca. The kits require an internet-connected mobile device with a camera. Pre-flight Anitgen tests are available (2 for $129 CAD) & RT-LAMP PCR tests ($199 CAD). Aeroplan members receive a discounted rate as well through Switch Health for Aeroplan members, the pre-flight Anitgen tests (2 for $79 CAD) & RT-LAMP PCR tests ($149 CAD). We recommend ordering these.
