Emirates airline announced on Monday that it is discontinuing multi-risk travel insurance for passengers from next month.
Emirates said that the multi-risk travel insurance will no longer apply to tickets purchased on or after December 1, 2021.
The airline had introduced multi-risk travel cover in September last year, on top of its Covid-19 cover, to help passengers travel with peace during the pandemic period.
Multi-risk travel insurance and Covid-19 cover applied to all Emirates tickets purchased from December 1, 2020, and extended to Emirates codeshare flights operated by partner airlines, as long as the ticket number started with 176.
Multi-risk travel insurance covered emergency medical expenses and emergency medical evacuation up to $500,000 as well as some other benefits.
