As of Monday 28th September, Air Service Basel will provide passengers with an option to be tested for COVID-19 upon advance request on arrival or departure.

Air Service Basel have partnered with Prevomed, a corporate health management organization, who will be on-call for swab tests taken on-site at the ASB private terminal.

The Prevomed doctor will need 1-hour advance notice of a passenger arriving to be on site. The doctor will take the test back to their lab in Basel City and deliver results between 6 - 24 hours after the test. The result is communicated directly to the patient by the laboratory.

As the quarantine restrictions continue to pose uncertainty for travelers and airline operators all over the world, Air Service Basel will offer passengers and crew a convenient way to be tested to make passage easier when travelling.

Air Service Basel’s customer account manager Benedict Staehelin comments: “We continue to keep our promise to our customers by providing them with the most flexible, high quality services that we are capable of during this time. Due to the pandemic we have to adapt to the new procedures and potential needs of our customers which is why we have introduced the COVID-19 tests. We can save our customers time by providing the tests onsite and normally deliver results to them within 6 hours.”

COVID-19 testing is not the only service that has been added to the list by the company since the pandemic began. Air Service Basel also now provides full disinfection services and car cleaning services to ensure their customers feel safe and secure. Additionally, they have invested in fitted medical masks to protect all ground handling agents and customer services staff.
