War Insurance

While aircraft and weaponry are forever evolving, and becoming ever more efficient, the risks in times of conflict remain the same. Our specialist aviation war insurance cover protects people and businesses involved in aviation activities worldwide.

Our global client base covers major operators plus associated lessors, banks and finance parties, manufacturers and general aviation. With a service-led relationship with our brokers and clients, we cover physical loss or damage to aircraft, confiscation per policy form, aircraft spares, plus excess third-party war liability. We also specialise in covering operations into distressed territories on behalf of governmental, non-governmental, or humanitarian organisations.

Intrinsic to our underwriting capabilities is an unrivalled claims experience which sits at the centre of our Insurance and Reinsurance expertise.
