Finnair has started offering complimentary COVID19
insurance cover for customers departing from Finland.

The Finnair Corona Cover comes complimentary with
all Finnair tickets booked through Finnair sales channels –
including Finnair.com, the Finnair mobile app or via the airline’s
customer service – for international travel originating from
Finland between 3 November 2020 and 31 March 2021.

The insurance means any customer who falls ill with
coronavirus in their destination can claim for any
coronavirus-related medical and quarantine expenses incurred in
their destination. The cover supplements a traveller’s own travel
insurance.

Tiina Tissari, Finnair Vice President, Customer
Experience and Products, said, “It is important that Finnair
customers feel they can travel safely as we recognise that
travelling during the pandemic comes with new kinds of concerns
and challenges. To meet the needs of our customers during the
COVID19 outbreak, Finnair has introduced its complimentary
Finnair Corona Cover. Now Finnair customers can enjoy the peace of
mind and additional security which comes from Finnair Corona
Cover, including cover for medical and quarantine expenses should
those insured with us become sick with coronavirus while
travelling.”

Finnair Corona Cover includes the following
expenses for customers in their destination:

– COVID19 related medical expenses and medical
repatriation up to €50,000, e.g. for a hospital stay or doctor
visits;

– The price of a coronavirus test, if the result
is positive;

– Additional quarantine costs, resulting from
falling ill with coronavirus, up to €100 for a maximum of 14 days,
which could cover additional overnight accommodation;

– A new return flight back to Finland, if the
original flight is missed due to illness related to coronavirus.

The cover is valid in all foreign destinations,
with no excess fees.

As well as including Finnair Corona Cover with all
Finnair tickets booked from Finland, the cover is included also in
Aurinkomatkat package trips and Finnair Holidays bookings, when
the destination is outside Finland.

Customers are advised to always contact Finnair’s
insurance partner for a consultation and approval for any medical
or other expenses, before using local services. Expenses will be
settled directly with local service providers, provided each
customer first contacts and is given approval from the insurance
partner.

The service is provided to Finnair customers,
24/7, with English-speaking customer service agents on hand to
provide assistance.
