Dubai carrier flydubai offers free global Covid-19 cover to passengers

The service enables passengers to benefit from coverage for their medical expenses up to EUR150,000 and quarantine costs up to EUR100 per day for 14 days

Dubai-based airline flydubai confirmed that passengers, who book flights between September 1 until November 30, 2020, will be given free global cover for Covid-19.

The new service covers passengers’ health expenses and quarantine costs, if diagnosed with the Covid-19 infection during their trip, and is valid for 31 days from the time they take the first flight on their itinerary.

The service enables passengers to benefit from coverage for their medical expenses up to EUR150,000 and quarantine costs up to EUR100 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.”

The new service is valid for all bookings made through the carrier’s website or mobile app, its customer centres or travel shops, the Holidays by flydubai portal, travel agents or its travel partners.

In July, Dubai’s flagship carrier Emirates announced that it would offer Covid-19 related cover to passengers, allowing customers to claim medical expenses of up to EUR150,000 and quarantine costs of EUR100 per day for 14 days, regardless of the class of travel or destination on flights undertaken until October 31.
