The COVID-19 fit to fly travel testing service offered by Executive Cars Derby Ltd has been implemented to support those travelling to and from the UK that require certification to fly. We know it can seem daunting proving you’re fit to fly and recent legislation requires passengers to produce certification at immigration borders. Our service allows you to use the time spent travelling to complete the PCR swab test without adding to your busy schedule and with minimal disruption. If you need a fit to fly certificate to satisfy travel requirements (which the NHS do not provide), we can now offer a post out service through our partner company CL Locums Ltd.
What is a fit to fly certificate?
A fit to travel certificate, which can also be called a fit to fly letter, is a medical certificate confirming your fitness to fly by a Doctor. A fit to fly letter can only be issued if you test negative for COVID-19.
Executive Cars Derby Ltd can provide COVID-19 PCR swab tests and fit to fly certificates when booking any airport transfer service. We can provide you with a certified COVID-19 fit to fly medical certificate signed by an NHS trained UK General Medical Council (GMC) Doctor when you test negative for COVID-19.
