Arik Air has launched a customised air travel insurance for its passengers. The initiative which enables a passenger to enjoy a customised domestic travel insurance on Arik Air with only N1,000, according to the airline, was aimed at taking passengers’ flying experience to a new level.
Arik Air spokesman, Adebanji Ola, said in a statement that a passenger only requires to buy an Arik Air ticket to any destination in Nigeria online, then buy an air travel insurance for just N1,000 using Verve Card, MasterCard or Visa Card.
The insurance policy provides cover against personal accident (up to N1 million) resulting in death, permanent disability or bodily injury within 90 days of the occurrence of the accident. The cover is from airport to airport whilst aboard Arik Air.
The benefits also include, flight cancellation or delays of more than eight hours, N20,000, emergency medical expenses of up to N50,000; mishandled/missing baggage (inconvenience) up to N20,000 and damage to baggage up to N20,000 per passenger.
This insurance is not the same as the normal cover guaranteed for all passengers in case of air crash as provided for by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) regulation.
