Does anyone know if an antigen test is enough to fly back to Uk if not double vaccinated?

And where is the best place to get it. Can you get it at Malaga airport on way back to uk?

Yes. I’ve recently done it twice. A basic antigen test (20 minutes result) is good enough.

Yes. There is a facility at the airport and it’s best to book a time slot. A rapid test is quite acceptable and I had one flying back yesterday. However, I didn’t leave it until the last minute and had it done in Fuengirola on Friday morning.

I did have to book ahead at the airport but I chose to book myself in to the clinic in Fuengirola since the airport, I assumed, would have lengthy queues and I wanted my test all done and dusted a few days before I flew.

Hi, would you be aware of changes to tests taking place at 4am on 4th October 2021.

We are in Fuengirola now and returning on Saturday 9th October to Cardiff airport but not sure what they are and/or if they only apply to returning to English airports.

I cant find anything on google.
