UTair Updates Insurance Plan for Helicopter Fleet
UTair Group has restructured the insurance program for its helicopter fleet, covering and expanding the number and types of insurance risks. The new policy provides hull coverage on helicopters of the Mil family, including Russian-built Mi-8AMT/MTV, Mi-171 and Mi-26 helicopters and the Kamov Ka-32, as well as foreign made helicopters such as the Airbus AS350 and AS355, the BO-105 and Robinson R44. All these helicopter types are operated by UTair Aviation, UTair – Helicopter operations and other domestic and foreign UTair Group subsidiaries including Vostok Aviation Company, Turuhan Airlines, UTair Europe, s.r.o. (Slovakia), UTair South Africa, and Helicopteros del Sur S.A. (Peru).
The new policy unites the previously disparate high limit liability insurance policies of UTair Group companies for passengers, 3rd parties, cargo shippers and cargo owners. A special tender was held among leading international insurance brokers and Russian and foreign reinsurance companies to select the best opportunities to realize this global insurance solution.
