Air India reduces its 2017-18 insurance premium payout by 20%

New Delhi: Air India has saved close to $4 million (₹26 crore) in the premium it has to pay for getting its fleet of over 100 aircraft insured for 2017-18, a reduction of 20 per cent in the insurance premium payout for the previous year.

The insurance cover for the AI fleet runs from September to October of the next year. A senior official told BusinessLine AI was able to negotiate a lower premium for 2017-18 as its safety record was good.

In effect this means the aircraft in its fleet did not suffer any major damage for which AI would have had to file a claim with the insurers.

In the airline industry, if the claim by any airline exceeds 40 per cent of the premium paid, there is generally an increase in the premium for the following year.
