WSU to Offer PCR Testing at the Airport


Wichita State University will begin offering free PCR tests at Wichita Eisenhower Airport on July 1st.  The tests will be conducted in the space under the mezzanine next to the Aviator’s Café. The simple, no-swab, saliva test takes just a few minutes and can be done before boarding, or while waiting to pick up baggage from the carousel after returning home. Results of the test will be available online in less than 24 hours.  Hours of testing will be 9-5 Monday through Friday.

Students from WSU’s National Institute for Research & Digital Transformation will be conducting the tests.

The service is NOT intended to be a community-testing site for the general public, but it will be available to passengers and their families who greet them, and to airport tenant employees.

Free testing for the general public is available at the Wichita State University Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory at 4174 S. Oliver, Wichita, Ks.
