Emirates to continue offering COVID travel insurance to passengers

Emirates airline will continue offering Covid-19 travel insurance for passengers as countries introduce fresh travel rules following the advent of coronavirus’ new variant Omicron.

In an update on its website dated December 6, the airline said that the multi-risk travel insurance cover will no longer apply to tickets purchased on or after December 1, 2021. The Covid-19 medical travel insurance cover will apply instead.

The Dubai-based carrier’s medical travel insurance covers up to $500,000 for overseas medical expenses and emergency evacuation as well as some other expenses.
