He added: “Emirates has worked hard to put in place measures at every step of the customer journey to mitigate risk of infection, and we have also revamped our booking policies to offer flexibility. We are now taking it to the next level, by being the first in the industry to offer our customers free global cover for COVID-19 medical expenses and quarantine costs should they incur these costs during their travel. It is an investment on our part, but we are putting our customers first, and we believe they will welcome this initiative.”
The cover for COVID-19 related medical expenses and quarantine costs is offered by Emirates free of cost to its customers regardless of class of travel or destination. It is effective for customers flying on Emirates until October 31, 2020, and is valid for 31 days from the moment they fly the first trip of their journey.
Customers do not need to register or fill in any forms before they travel, and they are not obligated to utilize the insurance.
