DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Long-haul carrier Emirates says it will cover the costs of passengers’ coronavirus-related medical expenses in an effort to encourage more travelers to fly on the airline.
Emirates on Thursday said passengers can claim medical expenses of up to 150,000 euros ($174,000) and quarantine costs of 100 euros ($116) per day for 14 days if they are diagnosed with Covid-19.
Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the chairman and CEO of the government-owned airline, said: “ We know people are yearning to fly as borders around the world gradually reopen, but they are seeking flexibility and assurances should something unforeseen happen during their travel.”
The airline said the coverage is good for passengers flying until Oct. 30.
