Good to know

  • The Swiss Aviation Act states that holders are liable for any bodily injury and property damage that their aircraft may cause to a person
  • The injured party need only prove that there is a causal link between the damage and the aircraft

In detail

Zurich Aviation Insurance provides the right protection for passengers, pilots and aircraft holders, while offering a range of services to meet your specific requirements.

Liability insurance for aircraft

  • Covers third-party claims for bodily injury and property damage outside the aircraft, where the aircraft causes the damage (third-party liability insurance)
  • Combines liability insurance for passengers and third parties to create a combined single limit (CSL) with a lump-sum guarantee

Accidental damage insurance: in the air and on the ground

  • Comprehensive insurance covers damage to the aircraft caused by fire, natural forces (e.g. gales, hail, landslide), theft or small animals
  • Stationary aircraft hull insurance provides comprehensive cover for aircraft on the ground, even if the engines are run for test purposes
  • The sum insured is based on the aircraft’s fair value; the deductible is tailored to your requirements
