Zurich Insurance launches UAS/UAV insurance packages
Toronto - Zurich Canada, a leading property and casualty insurer, has launched a new insurance product that will help its customers across a range of industries take advantage of the risk mitigation and cost saving opportunities available through the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly referred to as “drones.”
The new drone insurance package, developed in partnership with UK-headquartered Global Aerospace Underwriting Managers Limited, a leading provider of aerospace insurance, also closes an important coverage gap for companies already making use of drones in their operations.
“Zurich’s customers in Canada will be the first ones around the world to have access to this unique insurance solution, thanks to the sophisticated regulatory environment governing the use of drones in Canada,” said Urs Uhlmann, CEO of Zurich Global Corporate Canada, and leader for Zurich’s drones program in Canada. Following the Canadian launch, Zurich’s drone insurance package will be rolled out globally on a country-by-country basis, based on local demand and the sophistication of the regulatory environment governing drones in each country. | READ MORE
