JWS Aviation - Specialist Aircraft Insurance

Welcome to JWS Aviation.

The aircraft insurance specialists.

The aircraft insurance cover specialists.

Aviation insurance (also known as aircraft or aerospace insurance) is one of the most intricate and complex products available in the market. Consequently, we’ve always been of the view that when it comes to purchasing an aircraft insurance policy, a new and fresh approach was required.

It’s our belief that the days of a general insurance broker offering advice on aircraft insurance are long gone. Clients are now looking for a specialist, expert partner to handle their aircraft insurance provision.

That’s why we’re pleased to announce the launch of our new boutique insurance brokerage – JWS Aviation – a specialist arm of the JW Seagon Group offering cover for all types of aircraft.

Aviation insurance which reaches new heights.

Operating from our London offices, JWS Aviation is headed up by Andrew Sommerville (Managing Director) who brings his extensive knowledge, insight, and know-how of the aviation sector to enhance further the JW Seagon proposition.

As part of our regulatory compliance and to obtain Lloyds Broker status, we have partnered with ES Risks Ltd in London who are owned by Aston Lark Ltd, a top 5 Broker in the UK, placing in excess of £1bn of premium in the market. Other than giving us access to the Lloyds Market, it also provides us with UK and European licensing facilities, meaning wherever you are, we will be able to assist.

With this expert backing, we are able to advise and guide our aviation clients with complete confidence. From the hangar to the runway, and from take-off to landing – we’ve got all angles covered.

All types of aircraft insured
