You can navigate the browser and search for http://burp, here you're able to download the certificate, then rename it to .crt & install it

Additional for Android Android 7.0 (Nougat) and above (requeires root access):
rename certificate:
mv burp.pem $(openssl x509 -inform PEM -subject_hash_old -in burp.pem | head -1)".0"
and move the result file to /system/etc/security/cacerts/ (for example, using Total Commander).
