Carried out with the Nice metropolis, this “full-scale test intended to be deployed more widely and in a long-term manner in other airports”, according to ACA, is offered primarily to travelers traveling on Air France and Alitalia flights. And in particular to overseas departments and territories, with a stopover at Paris-Orly or Roissy-Charles de Gaulle, and to travelers to Rome, specifies the Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur company. They are also available to other passengers, free of charge, on a voluntary basis.

Antigenic tests, which perform less well than current PCR tests, do not require laboratory analysis, and the result can be known in 10 to 30 minutes. Also based on a nasal swab, they show better efficacy for people developing symptoms suggestive of Covid-19.
