Air France has set up a partnership with the laboratories Synlab and Biogroup to assist customers who need to take the COVID-19 detection test requested by certain authorities before their departure.
For travel to the French overseas departments and territories, a negative Covid-19 test dating less than 72 hours before the flight is required for all customers. The test is free of charge at Synlab and Biogroup partner laboratories, upon presentation of an Air France flight ticket (prescription not required).
Since July 26, screening in France is covered by health insurance without a prescription, whatever your destination.
To all other destinations requiring a recent negative Covid-19 test, the test is at the customer’s expense.

However, customers are invited to make an appointment as soon as they can and to take the test 72 hours before their flight. Results are provided within 48 hours.
