Airside Liability Insurance: Coverage for Contractors and Concessionaires

Do you need to buy separate insurance to work at an airport?

When UK and Ireland-domiciled contractors and concessionaires work at the airport, your legal liability is almost certainly not covered under your own public liability and motor insurance policies. Check your current policy wordings. If this is the case, the gap in coverage may be exposing your company’s balance sheet to a significant loss. In addition, most UK and Ireland airports will not allow you to operate “airside” (i.e. in any of the restricted areas) without evidencing suitable insurance.

Marsh’s Airside Liability Insurance Scheme makes it easy for contractors and concessionaires to obtain the necessary insurance to protect themselves and satisfy the requirements of airport authorities.

It has a straightforward application form, set premium rates, pre-agreed policy wording, and Marsh has a binding authority – all of which allows us to give our clients quick quotations and prompt binding of coverage.
