Flight Accident Insurance Coverage

While airplane travel is generally safe, the risk of engine trouble or terrorism does exist. Many erroneously believe that the airline company is liable for damages. What they fail to realize is the complications involved and that in the event of an accident, timely compensation may in fact be compromised. For this reason, buying a flight accident policy before departure is a good policy - pun, definitely intended!

Flight Accident insurance provides immediate coverage of a ticketed passenger on a scheduled air carrier to predetermined beneficiaries. Benefits are payable if an airplane accident causes injury that leads to:

  • Death (one hundred percent benefit payment, corresponding to limits on coverage)
  • Complete sight loss to 1 or both eyes (typical benefit is fifty percent of limits for each loss)
  • Dismemberment of hand(s) or each foot (typical benefit is fifty percent of limits for each loss)

Loss claims must be submitted usually within a year of the accident’s occurrence.
