An exploration of Hull and War coverages in the context of an aviation large loss scenario

The event will begin with a networking lunch at 1.30pm ahead of a 2pm session start.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about and discuss key considerations in respect of the hull and war elements of a large aviation loss. This interactive session will consider the impact of core clauses such as AVS103 (50/50 clause), AVN76 (wreckage clean-up), AVN46B (environmental issues) and AVN67 (airline leasing) on a claim and explore concepts such as air accident investigating authorities, leased engines and reserving.
2)    Tuesday 17 May 2022 (2.00-4.30pm)
Consideration of passenger and liability concepts in the context of an aviation large loss scenario

This session will inform attendees about a range of passenger and liability concepts that must be considered during the handling of an aviation claim. It will provide the opportunity for questions on and discussion around issues such as emergency assistance payments, criminal investigations and sanctions, as well as jurisdictional issues, medicare reporting and mediation.

This session will be followed by networking drinks, commencing at 4.30pm.
