easyJet inks Mondial insurance deal

easyJet has joined forces with
Mondial UK to include Scheduled Airline Failure Insurance (SAFI) in
travel policies offered to its passengers in the UK.  The move makes the airline one of the first low-fares carriers to
actively address concerns highlighted by recent Government and Civil
Aviation Authority (CAA) reports into the failure of some airlines and
the impact this has on passengers

The inclusion of SAFI within UK policies marks easyJet’s commitment to
protecting its passengers as well as being an industry leader in
reacting quickly to changes in the marketplace.  By working in
partnership with Mondial UK, easyJet can maintain the wellbeing of its
customers and deliver a high quality of customer service.


Beatriz Fernandez of easyJet comments: “easyJet has gone from strength
to strength, we now operate a fleet of 122 aircraft, carry over 33
million passengers annually and this year will be our most profitable
ever. But the airline industry is incredibly competitive and there are
airlines who are not as efficient as us, therefore passengers do need
some additional protection.



“The introduction of SAFI in to easyJet’s travel insurance product
demonstrates our commitment to all passengers, this move will give
consumers reassurance and encourage other airlines to offer the same for
their customers.”


Steve Hook, Director of Corporate and Travel at Mondial UK, remarks: “We
are delighted to continue to work with easyJet to bring this innovative
new offering to the travel insurance marketplace.  Mondial UK has
continued to adapt and grow with its partners to respond to the changing
needs and demands of the industry and we pride ourselves on being front
runners in the implementation of innovative travel insurance solutions.”
