Tampa International Airport offers COVID testing to all travelers.

Airlines are hoping that the tests can be extended to other airports. However, experts say which test to use is unclear.

Right now, airport tests are optional – that means you’ll likely have to pay for them out of pocket.

At Tampa International Airport, a rapid test costs around $ 60, while PCR tests cost around $ 120.
