Lufthansa, Fraport, and CENTOGENE have partnered to offer Coronavirus testing at Frankfurt Airport via a Test Center located right at the airport on the pedestrian bridge connecting Terminal 1 and the long-distance train station. This is an RT-PCR test (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction Test), which detects whether there is an acute infection with the virus, and thus the risk of infecting other people they come in contact with. The detection is carried out by means of a throat swab.
After registering via the Test Portal, a throat swab can be taken at the Airport Test Center without an appointment.
Please bring your registration, face mask and passport. Please do not eat, drink, or brush your teeth 15 minutes before the test.
