Etihad airways to give COVID-19 insurance to passengers to boost travel confidence

Etihad Airways of Abu Dhabi on Monday said it would cover medical and quarantine costs for passengers if they contract the new coronavirus after travelling on their flights.

Airlines around the world are trying to find ways to increase demand that has been broken by the pandemic and expected to take years to recover.

Medical costs of up to 150,000 euros ($177,000) and quarantine costs of up to 100 euro a day for 14 days will be taken by Etihad for its passengers who contract the disease within 31 days of first travel.
