SpiceJet passengers can now get tested for Covid for Rs 299
SpiceHealth announced the launch of the country’s cheapest testing facility for the general public at just Rs 499. SpiceHealth has also tied up with SpiceJet to offer a special price of Rs 299, which is one-third of the prevailing market rate, for its passengers who wish to get the crucial Covid test done and thus contributing to making flying even more safe and convenient.
Till now, SpiceHealth, a healthcare company founded by the promoters of SpiceJet, had been working with various state governments and government medical bodies to facilitate Covid testing. While that association continues, SpiceHealth has now decided to open its testing facilities for the general public to ensure rapid testing to fight the pandemic.
The company will make its testing facility available for the general public in two of the most affected cities in India – Mumbai and Delhi. To further enhance the convenience of customers, SpiceHealth will also allow sample collection from the comfort of their home at a nominal charge. Customers will also have the option to book an online appointment and get themselves tested at the nearest SpiceHealth mobile lab.
SpiceHealth’s mobile labs are accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) and the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
Customers can visit SpiceHealth website, fill in the details and book an appointment. SpiceJet passengers can book for a RT-PCR test on the SpiceHealth website by quoting their PNR number. The PNR can be used once by a passenger to avail the special discounted price either before travel or up to 30 days after travel.
Avani Singh, CEO, SpiceHealth said, “After testing over a million people in Delhi, Maharashtra, Haryana and Haridwar and working closely with the respective local governments, SpiceHealth has now come forth to offer the cheapest and fastest RT-PCR testing directly to the people taking forward our goal to maximise testing. We are proud to extend our quick, seamless and smooth testing facility to the public at large in Mumbai and Delhi, to start with, and we strongly believe that testing remains as important as ever in our fight against this pandemic as that’s the only way to quickly identify, isolate and treat those infected.”
“For a smooth travel experience and to help passengers meet Covid travel requirements, we have exclusively tied up with SpiceJet to offer its passengers a hassle-free testing experience at just Rs 299.”
Recently, SpiceHealth set-up mobile laboratories and testing facilities across Haridwar and at five locations along the border of Uttarakhand for pilgrims visiting the Kumbh Mela to undergo RT-PCR and Rapid Antigen tests.
