“We’ve put some of the most cutting-edge rapid testing technologies into action at Heathrow to see which offers the best solution.

“If we can find a test that is accurate, gets a result within a matter of minutes, is cost-effective and gets the government green light, we could have the potential to introduce wide-scale testing at the airport.

“Without this, our first-class aviation sector risks becoming second class, giving Britain’s competitive advantage to others.”

Currently, the UK has a travel corridor list in place with countries included exempt from the quarantine rules.
