The APH car park is the ideal space for a drive-through testing facility to ensure travellers can get the required tests prior to flying and upon return to the UK.

All tests are carried out by medical professionals with most results available within 45 to 120 minutes, depending on the test.

APH's car park is just 12 minutes from Gatwick Airport by bus transfer, which departs every 10 to 15 minutes.

To encourage customers to use its handy car parks, AOH has introduced a new Super Flex cancellation policy allowing anyone who's booked a slot at an APH-owned car park at Gatwick or Manchester to cancel their booking for a full refund right up to the time of their arrival.
