Emirates Is The World’s First Airline To Offer FREE Cover For COVID Costs For Travellers


As air travel continues to open up, with COVID precautions in place, Dubai-based Emirates has announced it will offer free cover for COVID-19 medical costs.

The incredible initiative was directed by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and announced today by HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President, Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Chairman, Dubai Airports and Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline & Group.

The cover will be for all travellers, ‘when they travel in the UAE & around the world’ and the move is aimed to boost travel confidence and to once again position Emirates & Dubai as aviation industry leaders, according to the post. 

The first airline in the world to offer this option
