Emirate Airline Offers Flight ‘Palliative’ To Customers, To Pay Expenses Of Passengers With Covid-19

Emirates Airline will on Monday resume passenger services to Lagos, while Abuja would follow on Wednesday.

The airline said it will cover COVID-19 related medical expenses, free of cost, for customers diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel while they are away from home.

“This cover is immediately effective for customers flying on Emirates until 31 October 2020 (first flight to be completed on or before 31 October 2020), and is valid for 31 days from the moment they fly the first sector of their journey,” Emirates said.

The airline resumption of flights to both cities of Africa’s most populous country will cover 13 destinations.

The announcement follows Nigeria’s decision to reopen it’s airport for international travel on September 5.

The country had in March banned international travel to curb the spread of Covid-19, after recording its index case late February.

The airline has taken measures to help its customers travel safely and confidently based on industry-leading health and safety measures.

The Dubai based airline has assured passengers travelling from both cities in Nigeria to the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific of safe and convenient connections to Dubai.

It said, “Customers can stop over or travel to Dubai as the city has re-opened for international business and leisure visitors.”

Emirates said in other to ensure the safety of travellers, visitors, and the community, Covid-19 PCR tests are mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving to Dubai and the UAE.

The directive is also applicable to UAE citizens, residents and tourists, irrespective of their country of departure.
