The Cost of War

Monday, August 27, 2001
There was a predictable outcry against the London-based War Risk Rating Committee for imposing a huge surcharge on sailings to Sri Lanka following the suicide bombing at Bandaranaike Airport last month, never mind that the surcharge was subsequently cut by a factor of ten. It has been estimated that the total insurance bill for the bombing will wipe out thirty years of the world's total hull aviation premium income in one go. If true, this proves just one thing - that aviation rates are too low. It also overlooks one other thing - that all the needless war risk premiums paid over the years in the hull, cargo and aviation markets would comfortably fund a number of Bandaranaike claims. www.lloyds.com
