Liberia International Airport Now Offering COVID-19 Tests

Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport, also known as Liberia International Airport, is now offering COVID-19 antigen testing services in partnership with Laboratorios Echandi, a Costa Rican company with more than 60 years of experience in the health sector.

Passengers traveling to or from Guanacaste, Costa Rica can take the test at the airport. The process of sampling and antigen analysis is carried out in the laboratory located in the terminal, allowing passengers to know the result of their test in less than an hour. The results will be available in digital or printed format. In addition, as part of the traceability of the results, a QR code scanning system will be implemented so that the airlines can verify the veracity of the results.

A website was set up that allows passengers to schedule an appointment for their tests, in order to facilitate access to the service. Passengers may also walk in for the test if they wish. Airport staff will be available to guide and inform visitors about the new facility, the use of the QR code and booking appointments.

The lab is located in the East parking lot, next to the terminal, and has the equipment, tests and personnel necessary to meet current demand and the flexibility to increase it if necessary.

It should also be mentioned that for trips to the United States, you can schedule the appointment to take the test up to 72 hours before the flight; if you schedule the same day of the flight, you must do it at least four hours before departure.
