Insurers unlikely to take hit on grounding of B737 MAX 8 planes, say industry officials


he grounding of Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes is unlikely to have any impact on domestic general insurers that have provided insurance to such aircraft, according to officials.

As many as 12 B737 MAX 8 planes of budget carrier SpiceJet have been grounded amid safety concerns in the wake of a plane crash in Ethiopia on Sunday that killed 157 people.

A top official of a public sector general insurance company said there would be no impact on insurers due to the grounding of the 737 MAX 8 planes.

Insurance companies already get their premium in advance and liabilities are paid when there is some damage or accident during an operation, an official of a private sector non-life insurer said.

The probability of any claims are less when planes are grounded as a result of which there would be no financial implication, the official added. Read More
