Emirates is the first airline to offer its passengers free insurance for health and quarantine costs associated with COVID-19, with unparalleled assurance regardless of destination or travel class.
Emirates passengers can travel safely thanks to the company's coverage of health expenses up to 19 EUR and quarantine costs up to 150.000 EUR per day for 14 days, if COVID-100 is diagnosed during their travel.
Emirates Group President and General Manager Sheikh Ahmed Bin Said Al Maktum said: At the direction of UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Emirate of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed, His Holiness, Emirates is proud to pioneer to increase confidence in international travel. While the borders are gradually reopening all over the world, we know that people desire to travel by plane, but seek flexibility and assurance in case something is unpredictable during their journey.
As Emirates, we have worked hard to take action at every step of the journey to reduce the risk of infection, and also revised our reservation policies to offer flexibility. Now, by raising the bar further, we break the ground in the industry and offer our customers free insurance for health and quarantine costs related to COVID-19 worldwide, if needed during their travels. We attach importance to our customers beyond investing on our own behalf and believe that they will be satisfied with this initiative. ”
The first airline to offer free insurance worldwide for costs related to COVID-19
Covering the health and quarantine costs associated with COVID-19, this insurance is offered by Emirates free of charge regardless of travel class and destination. This insurance is valid as of the moment for passengers traveling with Emirates until 31 October 2020 (the first flight must take place on or before 31 October 2020). Valid for 31 days after the first flight of their journey. In this case, if Emirates passengers travel to another city after their arrival at the destination they travel with Emirates, they will still be able to enjoy the additional security provided by this insurance.
Passengers do not have to register or fill out forms before traveling, and they do not have to use this insurance provided by Emirates.
It is sufficient for the relevant passengers who are diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travels to contact the special helpline to benefit from support and insurance.
