Etihad Airways 787

Etihad has launched Covid-19 global wellness insurance cover to boost travel confidence amidst customers. The airline has partnered with multinational insurance firm Axa for this project.

The initiative assures passengers that if they are tested positive for Covid-19 during their trip, the airline will take care of the medical and quarantine expenses.

Etihad tweeted:

The programme will cover up to EUR 150K of medical costs and up to EUR 100 a day of quarantine costs in case of a positive diagnosis for 14 days.

The cover is included with every Etihad ticket for international flights operating from September 7, 2020, until December 31, 2020.

Passengers can simply book their flight with the airline and they will be covered for 31 days from the first day of the trip. Bookings can be made direct, via a travel agent or other third party.

Duncan Bureau, senior vice president, Sales and Distribution, Etihad 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.”
