Ural Airlines to offer travel insurance for passengers

Ural Airlines announced on Wednesday that it has successfully entered into an agreement with Amadeus Insurance to offer travelers' insurance policies to its passengers.

Policies can be purchased online through Ural Airlines' standard ticketing process, a function facilitated by Alfa Insurance. Amadeus Insurance policies can be purchased for up to the entire duration of a passenger's trip.

Data for policies purchased will be automatically retrieved from a customer's flight reservation, saving the traveler time and effort in the process of making a claim. When a policy is purchased, the customer will receive a separate email with an explanation of benefits.

The option to purchase travelers' insurance is the newest enhancement Ural Airlines has made in its online ticketing platform, which also allows for the purchase of on-board meals, as well hotel reservations.
