3. Test centres for travellers

In addition to all the corona virus measures for travelling from the airport, there are also many measures that apply depending on your destination. For instance, a PCR or antigen test may be imposed. Brussels Airport has two test centres, operated by Ecolog. This way, travellers can have a quick test carried out at their departure and arrival. Make a reservation for your test beforehand so you can be tested faster.
