With the airlines beginning to make a comeback, so are the incentives.
Emirates has been very quick off the mark and has come up with an arrangement to cover medical expenses of up to €150,000 and quarantine costs of €100 per day for 14 days, should passengers be diagnosed with Covid-19 during their travel, while they are away from home. This cover is provided by the airline, free of cost to its customers.
This cover is immediately effective for customers flying on Emirates until 31 October (first flight to be completed on or before 31 October). It is valid for 31 days from the moment they fly the first sector of their journey. This means Emirates customers can continue to benefit from the added assurance of this cover, even if they travel onwards to another city after arriving at their Emirates destination.
Customers 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.
Any impacted customer who has been diagnosed with Covid-19 during their travel simply has to contact a dedicated hotline to avail of assistance and cover.
Dubai is now open and Emirates' previous customers to and from Dubai are welcome as the city re-opens for business and leisure visitors with new air travel protocols that safeguard the health and safety of visitors and communities.
Entry requirements for international visitors to Dubai are on Emirates website.
