Passengers will benefit from up to $178,400 coverage on medical expenses and quarantine costs of up to $119 per day for 14 days.
Commenting on the new service was chief commercial officer, flydubai, Hamad Obaidalla: “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.”
Obaidalla continued: “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.”
