YYC Partners On COVID-19 Testing

The Calgary Airport Authority this week announced a partnership with Switch Health to provide a COVID-19 testing clinic at Calgary International Airport (YYC).

Located in the departures level of the YYC domestic terminal, the new clinic is capable of processing PCR COVID-19 tests with a standard 12- to 24-hour turnaround time, with rapid antigen test results available within 30 to 60 minutes.

“With travel regulations and requirements continuing to evolve, the authority is responding with innovative changes designed to improve safety and efficiency at YYC by putting our guests at the heart of every decision,” said Rob Palmer, vice president, commercial strategy and chief financial officer at The Calgary Airport Authority.

Switch Health has been at the forefront of Canada’s fight against COVID-19, providing at-home and mobile COVID-19 testing services at airports and ports of entry across the country.

The new departures-level clinic will operate separately from the services that Switch Health administers on behalf of the Public Health Agency of Canada’s border testing program for guests arriving from international destinations.
