Arik now offers air travel insurance


Nigeria’s Arik Air has launched customised air travel insurance cover for its passengers for $5 per flight.

The insurance can be bought when booking an air ticket online and covers up to $5,000 against personal accident resulting in death, permanent disability or bodily injury within 90 days of the occurrence of the accident. The cover is from airport to airport whilst aboard Arik Air.

The benefits also include: flight cancellation or delays of more than eight hours ($100); emergency medical expenses (up to $250); mishandled/missing baggage (up to $100); and damage to baggage (up to $100).

This insurance, provided by Old Mutual Insurance Company in partnership with Risk Analyst Insurance Brokers, is not the same as the normal cover guaranteed for all passengers in case of air crash as provided for by the International Civil Aviation Organization regulation.
