Duncan Bureau, the airline’s senior vice president of sales and distribution, said the “global COVID-19 insurance” is building on its stringent measures. It’s part of the airline’s new health and hygiene program, Etihad Wellness.
“This additional cover will not only instill confidence to travel but also reassure our guests that we are doing all we can to keep them safe and protected,” Bureau said in a written statement.
All tickets on Etihad flights through Dec. 31 will include the insurance, according to the airline. Travelers who have already booked their tickets are enrolled and don’t need to do anything.
