Air Canada New Partnership with Switch Health

Air Canada has officially launched a new partnership to introduce the industry’s most comprehensive range of travel testing options, including portable self-administered COVID-19 Molecular and Antigen test kits for customers, in partnership with Switch Health, a Canadian-based healthcare company. 

Using the Switch Health COVID-19 RT-LAMP Kit, customers can travel with the kit and test themselves while abroad prior to their flight to Canada to meet federal government testing requirements without the need to visit a foreign COVID-19 testing clinic. Other options also include a portable self-administered Antigen Test Kit which is accepted by many countries such as the United States.

These testing kits options make travelling abroad easier and more predictable until such time as the testing requirements evolve. They don’t require any lab processing and the results are received in under 45 minutes with an official electronic report suitable for travel. A testing solution that can be taken around the world. 

And another great part is that Aeroplan members have exclusive access to preferred pricing on all Switch Health testing products. Aeroplan preferred pricing for the portable Antigen test kit start at $79 plus applicable taxes (one kit includes two tests), and the portable RT-LAMP test kit start at $149 plus applicable taxes. 

Members also earn 1,000 Aeroplan points on RT-PCR tests and 500 Aeroplan points on RT-LAMP Test Kits and Antigen Tests. Members can also redeem their Aeroplan points through the Aeroplan eStore to cover the cost of the test kits.
