Emirates offers passengers free cover for Covid-19 medical and quarantine costs

- Advertisment -

Emirates has become the world’s first airline to offer passengers free cover for Covid-19 medical and quarantine costs should they test positive for the virus.

The ‘unique assurance’ applies to any destination and class of travel.

“Emirates customers can travel with confidence,as the airline will cover medical expenses of up to EUR150,000 and quarantine costs of EUR 100 per day for 14 days, should they be diagnosed with Covid-19 during their travel, while they are away from home,” the airline wrote on their website.

This cover for COVID-19 related medical expenses and quarantine costs is offered by Emirates free of cost to its customers regardless of class of travel or destination. This cover is immediately effective for customers flying on Emirates until 31 October 2020 (first flight to be completed on or before 31 October 2020). It is valid for 31 days from the moment they fly the first sector of their journey. This means Emirates customers can continue to benefit from the added assurance of this cover, even if they travel onwards to another city after arriving at their Emirates destination.

Customers do not need to register or fill in any forms before they travel, and they are not obligated to utilise this cover provided by Emirates.

Any impacted customer who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel simply has to contact a dedicated hotline to avail of assistance and cover.

“Under the directive of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister of Dubai, Emirates is proud to lead the way in boosting confidence for international travel. We know people are yearning to fly as borders around the world gradually re-open, but they are seeking flexibility and assurances should something unforeseen happen during their travel,” His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Emirates Group Chairman and Chief Executive, said.
