Airbus Supplier Scheme
Aviation Product Liability Insurance

If you are an aviation supplier or service provider to Airbus, we can offer you a highly competitive insurance policy designed to protect aviation liability risks.

Providing services and products to the aviation industry gives a supplier certain responsibilities above and beyond the simple supply of goods, whether it’s through contractual risks or legislation (for example, under European law, producers are strictly liable for the damage caused by defects in their products).

Catastrophic aviation accidents have occurred as the result of relatively minor failures, for example:

  • A faulty rudder actuator caused loss of control and subsequent total loss of a commercial jet with 100+ fatalities
  • Faulty wiring near a fuel tank caused an explosion that resulted in the total loss of a commercial jet with 200+ fatalities

Protecting yourself against these aviation liability risks is one of the most vital measures to secure the economic survival of companies active in the aviation industry.

On behalf of Airbus Aeroassurances, Willis Towers Watson is pleased to offer a comprehensive aviation liability insurance policy through the Airbus Supplier Insurance Programme.
