Peace of mind with insurance from Cathay Pacific

Cathay Pacific is providing free COVID-19 insurance to all passengers so they can travel with peace of mind knowing they’re covered.

The airline is helping customers travel with confidence by collaborating with AXA General Insurance Hong Kong Limited to provide free COVID-19 coverage to all passengers.

Customers who fly with Cathay Pacific from now to 28 February 2021 will be covered for medical expenses related to a COVID-19 diagnosis incurred whilst overseas. The free COVID-19 insurance is automatically applied – all customers have to do is book their flight.

Coverage includes COVID-19 PCR tests and hospitalisation, if it becomes necessary, and coverage for medical expenses related to COVID-19 extends to up to US$200,000.

If quarantined, customers will receive an allowance of US$100 per day per passenger for up to 14 days due to COVID-19 to help them during periods of unforeseen and mandatory quarantine.

In case of evacuation and repatriation, Cathay Pacific will ensure that affected customers, as well as their travel companions and any children they may be travelling with, get home.

Customers are covered for a period of 30 days starting from the date of their departure, or until they return to their home, whichever is earliest.
