Emirates pays for medical expenses for passengers that catch Covid-19 during the flight

Performed by: Emirates

Country: United Arab Emirates

In July 2020, Emirates declared that its customers will be able to travel with confidence, as the airline will cover medical expenses of up to 150,000 Euros, in addition to quarantine costs of up to 100 Euros per day, for 14 days, if a passenger is diagnosed with Covid-19 during the period of travel.

The coverage, which is being provided by the airline at no cost to its customers, regardless of class of travel or destination, aims to encourage passengers to return during the pandemic.

According to the company, the coverage insures customers flying Emirates by October 31, 2020 (with the first flight to be completed on or before that date) and is valid for 31 days from the time they fly on the first leg of the trip.
