An insurance package from AIICO Insurance Plc has been introduced by Air Peace to compensate for unpleasant experiences of domestic travellers.
According to a statement by the Head, Strategic Marketing and Communications Department, AIICO, Segun Olalandu, on Monday in Lagos, the product is for the personal benefit of the air passengers at a premium of N1,000 per flight.
Olalandu stated that with the product passengers are entitled to compensation for inconveniences suffered due to flight cancellations, delays, baggage loss or damage and medical expenses for accidents or permanent disability.
“Passengers have a choice to opt out of the insurance package and there is a free cover for one accompanying infant (below two years) named in the travel manifest per flight.
“This product has been launched by Air Peace and passengers have begun to enjoy a more relaxing air travel experience with the assurance that inconveniences suffered because of unforeseen flight cancellation, delays, missing or delayed baggage shall be compensated,” he said.
