Hadassah Medical Center and Israir have announced a new program that will allow Israeli travelers to purchase a coronavirus test along with plane tickets, allowing for quick results and some stress relief for travelers before their flights.

As skies are beginning to reopen for Israelis, the coronavirus outbreak is still a matter of concern. As of now, many countries And airlines require negative test results from a COVID test taken within a required amount of time before departure. However, travelers may not always receive their tests within the specific time frame, resulting in complications and even preventing them from boarding the flight. 

To rectify this problem, Hadassah Medical Center and Israir have developed an agreement to allow travelers to purchase a discounted and rapid coronavirus test along with their flight ticket purchase. Beginning this coming Sunday, any passenger who makes a reservation on the Israir website will be able to book and coordinate the test as part of the booking process.

The tests can be purchased for $50 each, and test results will be received within 24 hours, allowing passengers to know for sure whether they will be allowed to board their flight. Official “medical passports” will be issued to travelers from Hadassah, which will include their results in English and can be presented to officials upon their arrival in their destination country.

Tests will be available at designated Hadassah Medical Centers located in Gibor Sport in Ramat Gan and Hadassah Ein Kerem in Jerusalem.
