Etihad Airways has extended its COVID-19 global wellness insurance cover until September 30, 2021.

The move “reinforces the effectiveness of Etihad Wellness, the airline’s health and hygiene programme. It’s an added benefit automatically provided to all guests – no exceptions,” said Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Sales & Cargo, Etihad Airways.

“As Etihad continues to gradually expand its services to up to 60 destinations this spring, the airline wants to instil confidence to travel and hopes this additional cover will reassure guests Etihad is doing everything it can to keep them safe and protected,” he added.

Guests who are diagnosed with COVID-19 during their trip do not have to worry about medical expenses or quarantine costs when they fly with Etihad.
