Emirates Security Measures
Emirates has offered free travel insurance to all passengers, regardless of class of travel and destination, and it covers a number of cases, including hospital and accommodation costs related to Covid infection. You do not need to fill out any application to use the service, it will be automatically valid on confirmation of booking and valid for 31 days from the date of the first flight. In some cases, insurance covers hospital costs of up to half a million dollars (up to about 150 million HUF) and pays up to 7,500 USD (up to 2.2 million HUF) for canceled flights for specific reasons. Detailed terms of insurance can be read here.
In addition to its increased flight offerings, Emirates will continue to do its utmost to provide the highest possible level of service and ensure the safety and health of its passengers and employees. Before take off, all passengers receive a free hygiene kit with a mask, gloves and hand sanitizer.
