flydubai offering free global cover for COVID-19 expenses

Passengers who book a flight with airline flydubai will automatically get free global cover for COVID-19 expenses.

The Dubai-based airline announced the new service covers passengers’ health expenses and quarantine costs if diagnosed with COVID-19 during their trip.

The service is valid for the first 31 days from the time travellers take their first flight. It applies to all bookings until Monday November 30.

It will give passengers coverage for their medical expenses up to €150,000 (around Dhs655,000) and quarantine costs up to €100 (around Dhs438) per day for 14 days.

flydubai’s global cover for COVID-19 will be managed by Dubai-based health insurance provider NEXtCARE Claims Management LLC.

“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,” said chief commercial officer at flydubai Hamad Obaidalla.

“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.”
