Discount airline Wizz Air announced that it will offer passengers COVID-19 insurance coverage as part of its travel insurance package, which is available on wizzair.com through the airline’s partnership with insurance provider Chubb.

Customers can purchase travel insurance which now covers COVID-19 related cancellations and medical related expenses when traveling abroad, according to a press release by the company.

András Radó, the airline's senior corporate communications manager said,

"At Wizz, we are committed to optimizing the travel experience, whether it is the booking process, onboard service or offering added extras which make travel more convenient and seamless. With our updated travel insurance package, passengers can rest assured that they are prepared and covered in case of COVID-19 disruptions to their trip."

Wizz Air Passenger Insurance covers, among other things, the medical costs due to the passenger's coronavirus infection abroad, as well as the additional costs incurred due to the extended stay, up to a certain amount. 

The insurance also covers lost, stolen, or damaged baggage as well as missed departure.  

In addition to travel insurance, the airline offers standalone cancellation cover in certain countries. Both cancellation cover and travel insurance can be purchased either during the flight booking process on Wizz Air’s website or app – and are applicable for both one way and return tickets.
