Dubai-based airline flydubai has announced that passengers booking with flydubai for travel between 1 September and 30 November 2020 will automatically receive free global cover for COVID-19.
The new service covers passengers’ health expenses and quarantine costs if diagnosed with COVID-19 during their trip and is valid for 31 days from the time they take their first flight on their itinerary. The service enables passengers to benefit from coverage for their medical expenses up to EUR 150,000 (USD 179,186) and quarantine costs up to EUR 100 (USD 119.46) per day for 14 days.
Hamad Obaidalla, chief commercial officer at flydubai said: “The safety of our passengers and crew remains our highest priority. The new COVID-19 cover we are offering to our passengers will encourage more people to travel with ease of mind knowing that they will be looked after at every step of their journey. We see the demand for travel starting to increase as more countries gradually lift restrictions on international travel. Safeguarding the passenger journey with added precautions and enhanced procedures will help to stimulate the flow of trade and tourism globally.”
