Aviation risk solutions

Aviation is one of the most high-profile industries in the world and is both highly regulated and commercially competitive. The landscape and risk environment is constantly evolving and new risks and exposures are emerging daily.

Businesses operating in this industry face some unique challenges. Volatility in the geopolitical and economic environment continues to make day-to-day operations more difficult, as do rising costs - primarily fuel and labour. Rapid advances in technology mean higher value repair costs and claims, as well as increasing threats from cyber attacks, which can impact the balance sheet and reputation.
