Tailored solutions for Airside operations
The airport airside areas, where a combination of refuelling and ground handling activities often take place in confined environments, is an area that is often overlooked.
We place much importance on understanding the risks faced by our clients as this enables us to tailor insurance products to meet with the variety of risks and requirements that clients may have. This includes working with insurers who provide risk management solutions for clients, particularly in the airport and airside areas.
Many companies operating airside at airports may have a limited exposure relating to aviation with vehicles operating airside to fulfil contract works, but these companies will nevertheless require an Aviation Liability policy with a minimum limit to satisfy the requirements of the airport. Airside liability provides cover for people and vehicles operating airside, which in most circumstances is a standard exclusion under conventional motor and public liability policies. In addition to this, we can also provide guidance and compliance with any tarbox agreements that are also in place.
At Howden, we already look after companies that are involved in the aircraft refuelling process and have experience in arranging straightforward Aviation insurance through to tailored insurance solutions for what can sometimes be seen as a complex and high-risk area.
