Third Party Legal Liability Insurance

The operator of an aircraft is liable pursuant the Luftverkehrsgesetz [German Air Traffic Act] (§§ 33-43 LuftVG as well as international agreements, European conventions and other additional regulations) for personal injury and material damages that have arisen through the operation of an aircraft. There is a legal insurance obligation. The limit is based on the aircraft’s maximum take-off mass.

The insurance cover of Third Party Legal Liability extends to the legal liability from the use of the aircraft listed in the insurance policy or endorsement and the type of use stated therein.
The personal legal liability of the operator as well as of all persons who participate with knowledge and willingness of the operator in flying and handling the aircraft are automatically co-insured.
Claims for damages due to personal injury to and material damages of the occupants of the aircraft as well as material damages to the conveyed goods are not insured. There are separate insurance offers for these.

Insurance limit The limit of the Third Party Legal Liability to be covered is based on Article 7 of EC Regulation 785/2004 and § 37 of the German Air Traffic Act:

Maximum take-off mass (kg)Minimum insurance limit (SDRs)

With respect to liability insurance conditions coverage of these risks up to a certain amount is obligatory due to country-specific regulations. 

Passenger Legal Liability Insurance

(passenger liability insurance)

The Passenger Legal Liability extends to the legal liability from the carriage or transport of persons and baggage as well as delayed carriage with the aircraft listed in the insurance policy or endorsement.

It thereby covers the liability of the carrier, arising under legal aviation liability provisions (international agreements and European conventions, §§ 33 - 43 of the LuftVG [German Air Traffic Act] or under § 823 of the BGB [German Civil Code]).

Included is the personal liability of all persons who with the knowledge and willingness of the owner participate in flying and handling the aircraft

The minimum obligatory limit of Passenger Legal Liability results from the following regulations:

EC Regulation 785/2004

Personal injury (Article 6 (1))
250,000 SDRs per passenger
100.000 SZR je Fluggast bei nicht gewerblichen Flügen mit
   100,000 SDRs per passenger for non-commercial flights by aircraft with an MTOM of up to 2,700 kg

Baggage (Article 6 (2))
1,000 SDRs per passenger for commercial flights

Cargo damages (Article 6 (3))
17 SDRs per kg for commercial flights

We recommend however significantly higher coverage amounts.

Pursuant EC Regulation 785/2004, insurance is obligatory if a person is conveyed based on a contract.


Combined Single Limit

As an optimal alternative to the separate Third Party Legal Liability and/or passenger legal liability, a Combined Single Limit can be taken out for each aircraft.

It provides coverage for the legal liability from the use of aircrafts (Third Party Legal Liability) as well as the legal liability of the carrier from the carriage of passengers and baggage on board aircraft as well as losses due to delay (carrier liability insurance).

As a rule we recommend our customers take out CSL

Personal Accident Insurance

We differentiate between two forms of personal accident:

  • Personal accident (associated with the aircraft)
  • per seat system
  • total amount system

Personal Accident is a voluntary insurance that the aircraft operator can take out for the pilot and his passengers. (This Personal Accident Insurance) It covers injury to the pilot and/or the occupants of an aircraft, which have arisen through an accident. The amount is limited by the insurance cover. The question of fault is not relevant for the accident insurance.

The so-called 24-hour-cover can be of particular interest for pilots, as it provides-cover for the general around-the-clock risk as well as the pilot risk so that there is (a corresponding) insurance protection in all circumstances.
