Malaysian Airlines kosten Versicherer rund 450 Mio. Pfund

01.12.2014 – Flugzeug_Kigoo Images_pixelio.deDie beiden Flugzeugabstürze der Malaysian Airlines in diesem Jahr werden die Versicherer voraussichtlich etwa 450 Mio. Pfund kosten. So stiegen die Versicherungsprämien für die Fluggesellschaft von zwölf auf 36 Mio. Dollar. Allein Lloyd’s ließ verlauten, die Kosten für die beiden Flugzeugabstürze seien bereits um das Zehnfache höher als die jährlichen Prämieneinnahmen.

This is Money.co.uk. says:

Nigel Weyman, chairman of the aerospace division at JLT, said: “It’s been a bad year with the two Malaysian losses. There’s been a change in the direction of the market.” Most of the claims made by airlines are as a result of fairly routine bumps and scrapes which add up to a total of more than £630 million a year. If there are also major crashes the insurers can be left facing massive losses.

The small war market has borne the brunt of this year’s disasters. All 298 people on board a Malaysia Airlines plane were killed when it crashed in Ukraine, close to the Russian border, in July. War underwriters have also agreed to pick up some of the cost of flight MH370, which vanished without trace en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March with 239 people aboard. The cause of the airliner’s disappearance remains a mystery.

Weyman said the increases were actually relatively modest when compared to the much steeper rises expected by many.He added: ‘On war rates some airlines got 100 per cent increases, but typically they have been anywhere between single digit and 40 per cent. (vwh/td)
