Etihad Airways is continuing to find ways to reassure travellers. Its latest move sees the carrier join forces with Austrian-based healthcare technology company Medicus AI to launch a COVID-19 risk-assessment tool.

Using Medicus’ technology, the tool allows Etihad guests to evaluate their probability of having contracted COVID-19. The process takes less than five minutes, with 22 questions to answer. The tool has been based on the latest guidelines from the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Etihad hopes the tool will help travellers make informed decisions.
