A new express COVID-19 testing facility at Logan International Airport for airport employees will soon open to the traveling public this month.
This will ensure travelers are properly tested before entering our communities or before boarding a flight to elsewhere.
MarketPlace Logan, an affiliate of New England Development and manager of the Boston Logan Concessions’ Program made the announcement last week.
President of MarketPlace Paul McGinn said the new XpresCheck COVID-19 testing facility is now open to airport employees and will be fully operational for passengers by mid-November at Boston Logan International Airport.
McGinn said the XpresCheck COVID-19 testing facility at Boston Logan is a modular constructed facility within the International Arrival area in Terminal E.
The new testing facility has seven separate testing rooms and has the ability to administer over 400 tests per day for passengers arriving and departing the airport within all terminals, as well as airport employees.
There are three COVID-19 testing options offered–Rapid Molecular COVID-19 test, the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Test, and a Blood Antibody Test.
“I am very excited about this new service that has opened in Terminal E,” said McGinn. “By expanding our preventative measures and adapting to new technology with the arrival of XpresCheck, we remain committed to ensuring the health and safety of our passengers and employees. Having easy access to a testing site at the airport will continue to provide a further sense of security for those who travel through Boston Logan now or in the future.”
McGinn said airport employees and travelers alike can visit the XpresCheck via walk-in appointments or by scheduling in advance. Pricing varies, $75.00 for an individual PCR Test or individual Blood Antibody Test, $90.00 for both (the PCR Test and Blood Antibody Test), $200.00 for the rapid molecular COVID-19 test, or $215.00 for the rapid molecular COVID-19 test plus additional tests offered.
XpresCheck also accepts insurance for the individual PCR and Blood Antibody Test. The entire testing process which involves introductions, administering the test, and the clinical visit takes up to approximately 20 minutes and results are provided onsite if having the rapid molecular COVID-19 test or shared via XpresCheck’s secure patient portal.
“We are thrilled to be opening XpresCheck today at Logan International Airport, which is our first testing facility outside of the New York metro area, and third to date,” said XpresSpa CEO Doug Satzman, who is overseeing the XpresCheck operation at Logan. “Our strategy remains focused on XpresCheck’s national expansion and we are in active discussions with other airports for further development of this highly relevant and timely concept. We anticipate announcing additional openings in the coming weeks.”
