    What Is Aviation insurance?

  • Aviation Hull Liability

    To identify the territory of regulation and tax for an aviation risk consider:

    1. The nature of the cover provided;
    2. The jurisdiction in which the aircraft is registered;
    3. The physical location of the property or aircraft; and
    4. The location of the insured’s residence(s) or business establishment(s).
    5. Aircraft hull and aircraft liability
    6. Aviation liability
    7. Aviation products liability

    Aircraft hull and aircraft liability

    Aircraft hull insurance covers losses arising from the physical damage to aircraft hull as a result of various perils, including war and terrorism. Aircraft liability insurance covers operators of aircraft for third party liability.

    The risk location may be determined by one or more of the following factors:

    • Physical location of the aircraft (place of operation)
    • Jurisdiction in which the aircraft is registered
    • Residence or establishment of the insured

    Please see the territory specific guidance on Crystal for specific risk location rules.

    Aviation liability

    Aviation liability covers a wide range of legal liabilities associated with airport and other aviation operations, excluding aircraft operations.

    The risk location is the territory in which the insured is resident or its business is established.

    If more than one insured resident/business establishment is covered, then each may individually create a risk location.

    Aviation products liability

    Aviation products liability insurance is taken out to provide coverage for components used in aircraft or other aviation products, e.g. avionic software.

    The risk location is the territory in which the insured business is established.

    If more than one insured business establishment is covered, then each may individually create a risk location.

  • Aviation Cargo and Crew Personal Accident

    Aviation cargo

    Aviation cargo insurance covers losses arising from the physical damage to cargo while it is in transit by air and for up to 60 days whilst in storage. (After 60 days it will be seen as Property - Standalone storage.)
    The risk location is usually the territory in which the insured is resident or its business is established. However, in a few instances, where the goods are physically situated or being transported to or from may also create a regulatory and tax location of risk.

    Aircraft crew personal accident cover

    Aircraft crew accident insurance provides cover in the event of death or injury to a member of an aircraft’s crew. The insured is normally the aircraft owner or operator.
    Where the policy is written in relation to a specified aircraft the risk location is determined in the same manner as aircraft liability (see above).
    Where the aircraft is not specified or is unknown the risk location is the territory in which the insured is resident or its business is established.

  • Airside Liability Insurance

    What is Airside liability Insurance?

    If you are going airside, the airport may well require you to have specific liability insurance to protect against injury to third parties and damage you might cause to other people’s property. Our products are specifically for airport concessionaires and contractors. Maybe you are delivering laundry, providing emergency services, providing utility services or mowing the grass. Perhaps you are involved in a construction project.

    “Airside” generally refers to an area on an airport that has restricted access. This will be the aprons, taxiways and runways as well as the area past the security gates in terminal buildings.

    Most standard public liability policies will contain an exclusion relating to high risk locations, airport and aerodromes are on the list of excluded premises. Some insurers may consider providing liability cover at airports for an additional premium but they are unlikely to provide an indemnity limit of more than £10 million.

    As companies or individuals that are working airside will inevitably require a higher level of public liability cover, airside liability insurance can be arranged as a separate policy, either to top up an existing insurance, or to provide the primary cover. It is not uncommon to see indemnity limits in excess of £50 million.

    Does your business involve going airside at an airport?

    You may only go airside once or twice a year - perhaps to make a delivery, pick-up or have a meeting with a business contact.

    If you go airside, it is likely that your general public liability and vehicle insurance policies will not cover you for an incident airside or will only provide a limited amount of cover, compared to the potential exposure.

    ...we can help!

    You can choose the limit you require from as little as £1,000,000 to £100,000,000 on either a 24 hours (per risk basis) or on an annual basis.

    This scheme is insured with a leading international Insurance Company, regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority.
