Etihad Airways is partnering Austrian-based healthcare technology company Medicus AI to launch a Covid-19 risk assessment tool that will empower guests to make informed decisions about travelling.
Powered by Medicus AI’s technology, the risk assessment tool will guide Etihad’s guests in evaluating their probability of having contracted Covid-19 by responding to a set of 22 questions. The self-assessment, which takes less than five minutes to complete, is based on daily updated WHO guidelines. The tool will also contain advisories and recommendations.
Frank Meyer, chief digital officer, Etihad Airways, 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.”
Baher Al Hakim, CEO, Medicus AI, added: “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.”
The tool is now available to guests on Etihad.com, and soon on the Etihad Airways mobile app on the Apple iOS, Android and Huawei platforms, and will be accessible in English, with additional language editions such as Arabic, French, German and Portuguese being added in phases.
