Aviation & Aerospace

Specialist aviation insurance services for the full spectrum of aviation risk.

Allianz has been at the forefront of global aviation insurance from the early days of powered flight, making us one of the largest, most experienced aviation insurance teams in the world.

In the 1920s, we insured the early Zeppelin dirigibles and the first successful East-West Atlantic crossing by von Hünefeld, Köhl and Fitzmaurice.

Today, we provide the full spectrum of aviation insurance activities from the largest airline fleets (including many national flag carriers) to private pilots, international airports and niche component manufacturers.

Aviation insurance delivered by an expert team 

Our global team, which includes pilots, engineers and lawyers, now services clients flying over 160 countries – from the Arctic to the Australian outback.

With market-leading capacity to manage the largest aviation risks, and an established reputation as leaders for the most complex co-insurance placements, we focus our expertise into four core practice groups, allowing us to use specialist expertise to ensure that clients receive a tailored service:

Airlines insurance and major risks

Hull (physical damage) and liability protection for passenger and cargo airlines, covering the full range of operations from single aircraft to major international carriers.

Aerospace Insurance

Physical damage and liability cover for manufacturers and suppliers as well as for airports, airfields, refuellers and associated service providers.

General aviation insurance

Hull and liability cover for smaller aircraft and helicopters including privately owned aircraft, commercial activities and fleets, clubs and flying schools, business jets and ground service providers.

Within our general aviation insurance offering, we also write drone insurance for commercial operators, manufacturers, distributors and repairers, flight schools and training facilities and UAS service consumers (those who hire UAS operators to fly on their behalf).

Aviation treaty reinsurance

Reinsurance of worldwide aviation insurance portfolios including international airline and general aviation account reinsurance.

At the heart of this service is a combination of technical insight into the aviation industry plus a flexible, partnership-based approach to underwriting, backed up by what we believe is the best claims team in the industry – plus a market-leading AA Standard & Poor’s rating.

Our experts are recognized as some of the leading authorities on aviation insurance claims with direct experience handling many of the largest and most sensitive losses of recent years. They work closely with our specialist aviation risk consulting team to minimize losses and to manage aviation risk in advance.

We regard claims as the true test of our services – so these experts are fully integrated into our processes, ensuring global coordination with local delivery.
