United to give travelers free COVID-19 tests on select Newark-London flights

Chicago-based United said the program would give Abbott Laboratories’ rapid molecular ID Now tests, which take about 15 to 20 minutes, to all passengers above age 2. The program will run from Nov. 16 through Dec. 11 on three evening flights a week from Newark Liberty International Airport to London’s Heathrow Airport. Global airlines are backing COVID-19 testing to replace or reduce 14-day quarantines and other restrictions that have battered demand.
