Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Airline passengers undergo COVID-19 blood tests before boarding

A new norm for air travel? Passengers of an Emirates flight to Tunisia are now tested their blood at Dubai International Airport. The 10-minute test checks if the passenger’s blood has increased antibodies. If the person is exposed to the virus, antibodies are developed to fight against it. Even though the test does not diagnose if the person is actually infected by the virus or not, it helps the person, airline, and health authority to decide whether he/she should fly or not.

Will such a medical check become a standard procedure to board an airplane or ship? Will you feel safer to have all the fellow passengers tested before boarding?

One thing is for sure. You need to arrive at the airport earlier than before.

Enjoy reading the article and learn about this new preboarding protocol at the airport.
