Yesterday, Travel News reported agents saying their clients had to beat the clock to fulfil the antigen test requirement before boarding KLM flights bound for Amsterdam https://www.travelnews.co.za/article/breaking-news-pax-flap-over-nerve-racking-test-window
KLM has subsequently sent out a release saying that to assist passengers, the airline has made arrangements with Travel Doctor Corporate for the additional Rapid Antigen test (now required by the Dutch government for passengers departing South Africa) to be taken at ORTIA.
The testing facility is located at the departures level in terminal B, near to the check-in counters B1 to B13. The test station is open from 12h00 to 15h30.
KLM strongly recommends that passengers arrive at the airport by 12h00 to ensure that all the tests for the flight can be administered timeously and to avoid any delay.
The cost of this additional test is at the passenger’s expense.
Passengers need to register and fill in the test form enrolment http://www.bit.ly/AntigenORT. They will then receive, by email, an invoice and a link to proceed to payment.
The carrier emphasises that the test is mandatory and that passengers who fail to take the test will not be allowed to board the aircraft.
