XpresSpa Group Announces New Rapid Antigen Test on Select Delta Air Lines Flights to Italy from New York - John F. Kennedy International Airport


NEW YORK, April 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XpresSpa Group Inc. (Nasdaq: XSPA), a health and wellness holding company, today announced the addition of a new rapid antigen test as part of an expanded COVID-19 testing line up. As part of this pilot, XpresCheck has signed an agreement with Delta Air Lines to administer this test to customers traveling from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Milan Malpensa and Rome –Fiumicino International Airports starting last week.

“This new single-use rapid antigen test is an important addition to our line up, as it is more economical and easy to administer, allowing us to test more passengers faster,” said XpresSpa CEO Doug Satzman. “XpresCheck’s agreement with Delta Air Lines to administer rapid antigen testing to customers traveling from New York JFK’s XpresCheck’s Terminal 4 helps increase traveler safety and restore confidence in airline travel in a more efficient way at XpresCheck sites.”

The airline’s COVID-tested flights allow customers eligible to travel to Italy to avoid the mandatory 14-day quarantine on arrival, following a rigorous testing protocol before and after travel. The flights to Milan will initially operate four times per week beginning April 1 before moving to five times per week on April 12 and daily in May. Flights to Rome will operate three times per week in April and May, before increasing to five times per week starting May 25. The program gives customers the reassurance to fly more safely while vaccination efforts against COVID-19 roll out worldwide.
