阿联酋航空:将为旅途中染疫乘客付医疗费

阿联酋航空(Emirates)周四表示,将免费为乘客提供医疗保险,如果乘客不幸在旅途中感染冠病,航空公司将会支付医疗以及撤离回国费用高达15万欧元(约24万新元),此外也负担为期14天的每日隔离检疫费用达100欧元,成为全球第一间提供冠病相关医疗费用的航空公司。

这项政策即日起至10月31日止适用于所有乘客,不会加收额外费用。阿联酋航空集团执行长谢赫阿哈迈德亲王在声明中表示,“阿联酋航空不断努力在乘客旅程中降低感染风险,我们也修改订票政策以提供弹性。”

此外,阿联酋航空也于机上提供乘客旅行卫生包,旅行卫生包内含口罩、手套、手部消毒剂和抗菌纸巾。

The cover’s launch is effective immediately, but only covers customers flying on Emirates until 31 October 2020. That means that the first flight has to be completed on or before 31 October.

After that, the cover is valid for 31 days. It benefits customers almost regardless of their location, as long as it was mentioned in the trip booking form. That means they can travel onwards to another city after arriving at their Emirates destination, said the airline. Nevertheless, there is no assistance in the country of residence of the travelers.

The passengers will also “benefit from repatriation assistance, assistance with medical and hospital costs, and assistance with quarantine accommodation costs in an approved designated facility”.
