Those willing to participate in the program will need to be tested three times. They’ll take a molecular PCR test five days before arriving in Amsterdam, a rapid antigen test at Hartsfield-Jackson and a PCR test upon arrival at Amsterdam Schiphol. Negative test results will be required to board the flights.
Industry officials hope that, until vaccines are broadly available worldwide, testing of passengers for international flights will alleviate quarantine requirements, helping to boost travel.
Other airlines including United and American have already announced their own testing programs on some international routes.
