COVID Testing Zurich to London

Does anyone know if the antigen test offered at Zurich Airport is fine to fly with to London Heathrow. According to Gov.uk website the antigen is also accepted or does it have to be specifically a PCR test?

Re: COVID Testing Zurich to London

Antigen test is fine - watch some of the airport test locations as my work mate got a cert last week from one of the centres (in terminal one i think?) which said 'negativ' instead of 'negative' even though the rest of the text was in English and this jobsworth at the Swiss departure gate wasn't going to let him on the plane initially until he escalated it to a manager. The certificate has to be in English, French or Spanish or they will not let you board.

You also need to book day 2 and 8 tests separately on top of this though for when you get over there as Switzerland is an amber country.
