Jasleen Kohli, Chief Distribution Officer, Go Digit General Insurance Limited, said, “Our mission at Digit is to simplify insurance & to create products that customers really need. Given, the current global situation, offering a cover for COVID-19 was the need of the hour and we are glad that SpiceJet shares this vision with us, especially now that domestic travel has been opened. The product covers not just hospitalization expenses including ICU Rent & Room Rent but also Pre/Post Hospitalization & Ambulance Charges for a positively tested COVID-19 patient. The idea is to handle these unpredictable times in the best way possible, through simplified insurance as an instrument.”

Ajay Singh, Chairman & Managing Director, SpiceJet, said, “The health, well-being and safety of our passengers is our topmost priority and this medical insurance cover that we have facilitated is certainly relevant for the current times. It will further boost the morale of our passengers to travel freely and frequently. The insurance cover is not only very affordable but is also valid for a one-year period. I would also reiterate the fact that air travel was and remains the safest mode of public transport and we have not seen a single case of transmission of the coronavirus on a SpiceJet flight.”
