Ethiopian is pleased to announce that we will be extending the medical insurance including repatriation, evacuation, and quarantine costs related to COVID-19 until the 30th of September 2021.The coverage applies to all Ethiopian international flights booked on Ethiopian tickets.
The global cover dubbed Sheba Comfort is part of the airline’s extra security measures to protect passengers and ensure that they travel with peace of mind.
Passengers will have their medical expenses up to EUR 100,000 covered if they are diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel. Sheba Comfort also includes repatriation and evacuation services whenever needed besides 24/7 assistance through the airline’s hotline.
The Sheba Comfort insurance scheme, introduced in collaboration with AXA Partners and Awash Insurance Company, is valid for 92 days for a round trip and 31days for a one-way ticket. It is to be recalled that Ethiopian recently unveiled an ultra-modern, spacious passenger terminal which is completed with an emphasis on biosecurity and biosafety measures.
The passenger will automatically be covered once their ticket on ET has been issued. You do not need to charge a separate fee for the insurance. No EMD issuance is required and you do not need to do anything. You may share the document attached with your passenger after you’ve issued their ticket.
