As parts of the global aviation community start to return to some form of normality after months of lockdown, businesses continue to weigh the impact of COVID-19. From an insurance perspective, the after-math of the pandemic is likely to be an acceleration of the rating trends that were already evident beforehand. The market therefore looks set to remain a challenging environment but one in which, with the right partners and strategy, clients can continue to obtain the cover they need at prices offering good underlying value.
In this edition, we have collaborated with specialists across Gallagher, as well as external contributors. We have a special feature article from Alexandre de Juniac, Director-General and CEO of IATA discussing the importance of restoring trust that flying is safe and the steps the aviation industry is taking to look after travellers. Also, our Lead Lines article written by Martin Jackson from HDI Global looks at how the events of 2019/2020 could become the catalyst for positive change in the insurance market both now and in the future.
We hope you enjoy the issue!
