What is a fit to fly certificate?
A fit to travel certificate is a medical certificate confirms your fitness to fly.

M W Phillips offers fit to fly certificates with PCR Covid-19 testing. If you test negative for Covid-19, we will provide you with a certified Covid-19 fit to fly medical certificate

How to get a fit to fly certificate
We've got you covered. We can supply Covid-19 swab test results alone or with a corresponding fit to fly letter. Check what type of travel documentation you need and place your order.

Things to consider when choosing our fit to fly testing and certificate

The time window required by your airline and destination
The day of the week your flight is departing
Time windows are normally given by your airline or the country you are flying to. For example, a 72 hour time window means that your swab needs to be taken within 72 hours of your flight.

How much does it cost?
Each fit to fly test costs £80

How long does a fit to fly certificate last?

Your fit to fly certificate shows you are fit and able to fly around the time of your flight. A fit to fly letter may not be accepted if it was given to you a few weeks or months before you are set to travel. With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, some airlines and countries may specify how recent your fit to fly certificate must be.
