Covid-19 Risk-Assessment Tool Introduced by Etihad Airways
A risk-assessment tool has been introduced by Etihad Airways. It will enable its passengers to evaluate the probability of having contracted the Covid-19 by responding to a set of 22 questions.
The self- controlled assessment, which takes less than five minutes to complete, is based on World Health Organisation guidelines that are updated daily.
The Abu Dhabi carrier is teaming up with Austrian-based healthcare technology company Medicus AI to introduce the device.
The airline said: “With this risk-assessment tool, guests will understand their individual probability of having contracted the virus alongside advisories and recommendations, allowing them to make informed decisions about travelling.”
Etihad Airways chief digital officer Frank Meyer said: “We know that health and wellbeing will be a major factor impacting the travel decisions of our guests and are committed to ensuring their continued safety and peace of mind when they choose to travel with Etihad Airways.
“As flying operations begin to resume globally, we want to empower our guests to make informed decisions on travel.
“Partnering with Medicus AI on this innovative new tool is just one of the ways we are adapting our operations and guest experience to meet the new demands placed on the travel industry as a result of Covid-19.”
Medicus AI chief executive Dr Baher Al Hakim added: “We are proud to support Etihad Airways in their efforts to ensure the safety of its passengers and crew as the world returns to normalcy.
“Our initial efforts at the start of the pandemic were to help provide assessment and monitoring tools, and as needs shift, our efforts have evolved to help our partners bring people back to their day-to-day life in a safe manner.”
