Morocco:National carrier provides free COVID-19 insurance

Morocco's national flag carrier Royal Air Maroc will be offering free COVID-19 insurance policies for passengers who have purchased standard tickets for international flights between 1 December and 31 May 2021, reported Morocco World News.

The insurance provides international coverage of up to EUR150,000 ($181,754) and will cover passengers as soon as they board and last for a maximum travel period of 31 days.

The insurance provides coverage for certain medical expenses related to COVID-19 treatment as well as accommodation costs for compulsory quarantine at a rate of up to EUR100 per day for a maximum of 14 days. It also covers repatriation of COVID-19 patients in the event of death due to the novel coronavirus.

However, the free insurance policy does not cover the cost of PCR tests.

At the time of check-in, Royal Air Maroc requires its passengers to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test whose sample was collected less than 72 hours prior.

The latest COVID-19-related measures are in line with Morocco’s preventive actions to curb the spread of COVID-19. The measures exempt children under the age of 11, who do not need testing to fly with Royal Air Maroc.
