Emirates is now providing a new insurance cover for its customers to help plan hassle-free travels. The airline has launched an expanded, multi-risk travel cover on top of its current COVID-19 cover. This will be provided at no additional cost to customers and is the first of its kind in the airline and travel insurance industry.
The insurance cover will extend to codeshare flights operated by partner airlines
The multi-risk travel insurance and COVID-19 cover will automatically apply to all Emirates tickets purchased from December 1st and will extend to Emirates codeshare flights operated by partner airlines. Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Emirates chief executive, said: “Emirates was the first airline to offer complimentary global Covid-19 cover for travellers back in July, and the response from our customers has been tremendously encouraging.“We have not rested on our laurels and instead continued to look at how we can offer our customers an even better proposition. We are very pleased to be able to now provide this new multi-risk travel insurance and Covid-19 cover, which is another industry first, to all our customers.”
He added: “We see a strong appetite for travel around the world, especially heading into the winter holidays as people seek warmer climates and family destinations like Dubai.“By launching this new multi-risk travel insurance and Covid-19 cover, we aim to give our customers even more confidence in making their travel plans this winter and moving into 2021.”
