The cover is offered by Emirates free of cost to its customers regardless of class of travel or destination and is available to Emirates customers until 31st October 2020.
The cover, valid for 31 days enables customers to continue benefiting from the cover even if they travel onwards to another city after arriving at their Emirates destination.
Customers can now travel with confidence, and do not need to register or fill in any forms before they travel, and they are not obligated to utilise this cover provided by Emirates.
Customers diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel will have to contact a dedicated hotline to avail of assistance and cover. Emirates has also revised its booking policies to offer customers more flexibility and confidence to plan their travel. Customers whose travel plans will be disrupted by COVID-19 related flight or travel restrictions, will hold on to their ticket which will be valid for 24 months and rebook to fly at a later time.
The airline has implemented a comprehensive set of measures to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers.
