Etihad Airways is introducing COVID-19 global wellness insurance cover as part of its health and hygiene programme, Etihad Wellness.
Duncan Bureau, Senior Vice President Sales and Distribution, Etihad Airways, said: “The safety, health, and wellbeing of our guests and employees is our top priority, during and beyond the flight. The introduction of global COVID-19 insurance, in partnership with AXA, builds on stringent measures already in place as part of our Etihad Wellness programme, championed by our Wellness Ambassadors.
“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.”
All Etihad tickets regardless of date of booking, traveling between now and 31 December 2020 will include COVID-19 insurance. The insurance is valid worldwide for 31 days from the first day of travel.
If passengers are diagnosed with COVID-19 while away from home, COVID-19 global wellness insurance will cover up to EUR150,000 of medical costs and up to EUR100 a day of quarantine costs in case of a positive diagnosis for 14 days.
