Products & Airports

Our insurance policies are bought by airframe, engine and component manufacturers, air traffic control providers, local and major airport operators, ground handlers, security providers and the service companies working at airports. 

As the complexity of aircraft continues to increase, so do the number of component part manufacturers. Our insurance provides a cost-effective way of protecting the manufacturers’ balance sheet in a litigious world.

Each development in manufacturing presents new exposures to the overhaul facility. We specialise in insuring repair and overhaulers of fixed wing non-airline aircraft.

Every airport is a unique risk. An enormous range of liability exposures comes together at an airport, and there are many independent organisations that contribute to its successful operation.

We’re also keeping on top of new and emerging risks. The move to internet based technology means increased vulnerability to cyber attack or loss for all systems -  including air traffic control. Our CyberEdge product offers specific protection for these risks.

We also offer environmental impairment liability insurance to address a wide range of potential pollution exposures faced by both airport owners & operators.
 

Who is this for?

Airframe, engine and component manufacturers, air traffic control providers, airport operators, ground handlers, security providers, airport service companies.
