COVID-19 Testing Options for American Airlines Travelers

Certain travel destinations have implemented a 14-day quarantine requirement for all travelers who have not had a test within 72 hours of the final leg of their departure. Travelers who test negative for COVID-19 pre-flight will be exempt from the requirement.

Travelers with select flights from DFW International Airport will have two options for pre-flight testing with CareNow:

  1. In-person testing at designated CareNow urgent care locations, open every day and after hours ($150)
  2. On-site rapid testing (Hawaii only) administered by CareNow at DFW International airport, results expected in 15 minutes on average the day of your flight ($249).
