Available exclusively through Marsh, AFIC provides an alternative aircraft finance insurance product for new aircraft deliveries and is underwritten by four leading global insurance companies, Allianz, AXIS Capital, Sompo International (formerly Endurance), and Fidelis. The AFIC structure has already been used by a major international airline to support its financing of new Boeing 747 and 787 aircraft.

AFIC can assist airlines globally in obtaining more efficient financing by utilising insurance to protect the lender’s exposure to default for the duration of the loan. The terms of this insurance can be tailored according to the individual purchase agreements made between Boeing, the airline and its financiers.

Bruce Fine, Global Leader of AFIC for Marsh, said: “We believe that AFIC is a significant development in airline financing globally and will contribute to the growth and diversification of aircraft finance. AFIC offers Boeing customers a wider range of financing options to facilitate the purchase of newer, more efficient aircraft to enhance their fleets, and lenders will be able to conduct new transactions with greater confidence.”
