Vietnamese airline Vietjet is so confident its passengers will have a corona-free flight its offering anyone who does catch the virus while flying with them 200m VND ($A14,300).

The promotion – if that’s what you can call it –  is be part of Vietjet’s “SKY COVID CARE insurance” scheme, and will cover all domestic flights between 23 March and 30 June 2020.

It’s free to any of the flying public regardless of age and nationality.

According to a Reuters report from yesterday, there are presently 134 known cases of coronavirus in Vietnam.

In a statement announcing the scheme, Vietjet said: “With the insurance, passengers are eligible for insurance coverage and benefits from Vietjet within 30 days starting at 00:01 of the flight date, regardless of how passengers are infected with the disease.”

However, the airline stresses that anyone who has already been diagnosed with COVID-19 is ineligible and all other passengers must “comply with all regulations on disease prevention and control of Vietjet, the Ministry of Health and authorities”.

A further caveat, passengers with “epilepsy, mental illness or suicidal behaviours” are also not allowed to take part in the scheme.

Vietjet has said it has set aside aside “tens of billion dong” of its own money to cover the scheme, which it adds is designed to “bring passengers assurance”.
