AXIS Aircraft Contingent Hull, Hull War & Liability Insurance

Financial instability, unforeseen accidents, government seizures, war-there are many reasons why a financial institution or an aircraft lessor may seek to protect their asset(s) and any third-party liabilities arising from the use of their aircraft. Our "contingent" policy is triggered in the event of an accident, but only when the operator's policy fails to respond. This product is always "contingent" behind an operators policy. Cover is also extended to include "possessed" exposures. For example, when an aircraft lease expires, the aircraft lessor will become responsible for their aircraft on a "first loss" basis.
