Etihad Airways is introducing COVID-19 global wellness insurance cover as part of the airline’s health and hygiene program—Etihad Wellness.
So, what’s it all about?
Etihad passengers who are diagnosed with COVID-19 during their trip won’t have to worry about medical expenses or quarantine costs.
If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 while you’re away from home, Etihad’s COVID-19 global wellness insurance will cover up to EUR150K of medical costs, and up to EUR100 per day of quarantine costs in case of a positive diagnosis for 14 days.
“This is a welcome initiative by the national carrier of the UAE. While we’re still a way from anything resembling a ‘normal’ flying environment, program’s like this play an important role in rebuilding passenger and client confidence.”
Peter Hosper – CEO, The Travel Authority Group.
All Etihad tickets, regardless of date of booking, traveling between now and 31 December 2020 will include the COVID-19 insurance. If you have an existing booking you don’t need to do anything—you will be automatically enrolled into the program.
The insurance is valid worldwide for 31 days from the first day of travel.
“The introduction of global COVID-19 insurance, in partnership with AXA, builds on stringent measures already in place as part of our Etihad Wellness program” said Duncan Bureau, Senior Vice President Sales and Distribution, Etihad Airways.
“This additional cover will not only instil confidence to travel but also reassure our guests that we are doing all we can to keep them safe and protected. As more countries start opening their borders, we are making it as easy as possible for our guests to plan their next trip, hassle free,” Bureau added.
