  1. Frankfurt Airport

#StrongerTogether

Lufthansa, Fraport, and CENTOGENE have partnered to offer Coronavirus testing at Frankfurt Airport via a Test Center in the immediate vicinity. This is an RT-PCR test (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction Test), which detects whether there is an acute infection with the virus, and thus the risk of infecting other people they come in contact with. The detection is carried out by means of a throat swab.



Where Can I Get Tested?

The CENTOGENE Test Center is centrally located at Frankfurt Airport between Terminal 1 and the national long-distance railway station (ICE station).


How to reach the CENTOGENE Test Center

After leaving the security checkpoint, take the escalators up between Terminals A and B, and cross the footbridge in the direction of the long-distance train station. Once you have arrived in the other building, you will find the Test Center on the right-hand side as you head towards the long-distance train station, which is located in the Squaire.

Take the escalators up, and follow the signs to the terminals. Go approx. 70m to reach the Test Center, located on the left-hand side of the conveyors.

Follow the signs in the direction of the long-distance train station. You will find the Test Center at the crossing to the Squaire on the right-hand side.
