International passengers arriving at KL International Airport (KLIA) can now experience its new private COVD-19 screening facility that promises safe, convenient, and efficient testing procedures. This new facility started operating on 19 September 2021 and can provide COVID-19 RTK, Rapid Molecular PCR, and RT-PCR results within 15 minutes, 1 hour, and 3 hours respectively, resulting in shorter wait times for passengers. This testing facility is available at five locations in KLIA Main Terminal and three at klia2. These 8 locations will start operating in stages, with the first starting in Gate G1, KLIA Main Terminal. All locations feature comfortable lounges for passengers to relax while waiting for their test results.

Chairperson of Malaysia Airports, Dato’ Seri Diraja Dr. Zambry Abd Kadir said the new facility aims to ensure that they maintain the highest standards of services with implementing new travel SOPs. “We hope to further restore the confidence of passengers flying via our airports by enhancing the level of comfort and convenience throughout their journey. We have engaged the services of BP Clinical Lab, a top-class medical healthcare provider, to run this private COVD-19 screening facility which has been sanctioned by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and National Security Council. We will not compromise on the safety of our passengers. Enabling this new facility is part of our continuous efforts to host joyful connections whilst upholding all safety measures aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19. With the recently implemented Langkawi domestic travel bubble by the government last week, we look forward to the lifting of international travel restrictions soon. The private COVD-19 screening facility will certainly facilitate safe travel practices.”

The private COVD-19 screening facility will accommodate about 40,000 passengers daily at both terminals. Passengers can look forward to being escorted from the arrival gate to the testing area as part of the services provided. At the facility, passengers can wait

comfortably at lounges that are equipped with productivity tools such as Wi-Fi Internet access, portable Wi-Fi rental, and telecommunication SIM card, while indulging in the food and beverages that are on sale. Passengers undergoing the private testing can opt to pay via credit card, cash, online transfer, or e-payment through https://airport.doctor2u.my/ by BP Clinical Lab.

To ensure excellent services to passengers, BP Clinical Lab has set up a world-class and robust laboratory at KLIA complete with sample processing, extraction, and amplification (PCR) room. The lab which was officially approved by MOH last month can handle over 45,000 tests per day.

They provide the services at the new facility for a fee, which is like the current practice by MOH. The cost per passenger ranges from RM90 to RM370 for Malaysians and RM120 to RM470 for foreigners. The facility is open to all arriving passengers. Passengers under certain categories, namely B40, civil servants, persons with disabilities, and Malaysian students, as determined by the government, can choose to undergo the screening test provided by either MOH or BP Clinical Lab complementarily.

BP Clinical Lab is an established medical healthcare service provider that has conducted the COVID-19 test on more than 3.5 million people to date. The organization has over 38 years of experience in the industry and runs more than 120 outlets nationwide staffed by a large pool of medical personnel comprising qualified doctors and nurses. It also integrated its current health check system with MySejahtera and SIMKA (owned by the National Public Health Laboratory to monitor outbreaks).
