As all its flight crews are now fully vaccinated, and with the plans to expand its network to 60 destinations come spring, Etihad Airways recently announced the plan to extend its global ‘wellness insurance’.
The UAE flag carrier first introduced the insurance in partnership with AXA last year in September, promising passengers who are diagnosed with COVID-19 during their trip coverage for medical expenses or quarantine costs. The insurance is valid worldwide for 31 days from the first day of travel.
Etihad Airways is now offering its COVID-19 global wellness insurance cover until 1 October 2021, so passengers diagnosed with COVID-19 during their trip won’t have to worry about medical expenses or quarantine costs when they fly with Etihad.
According to Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Sales & Cargo, Etihad Airways: “Extending Etihad’s COVID-19 global wellness insurance reinforces the effectiveness of Etihad Wellness, the airline’s health and hygiene program. It’s an added benefit automatically provided to all guests – no exceptions.
“As Etihad continues to gradually expand its services to up to 60 destinations this spring, the airline wants to instill confidence to travel and hopes this additional cover will reassure guests Etihad is doing everything it can to keep them safe and protected.”
