Insurance requirements for air carriers and aircraft operators
With the accession of the Republic of Poland to the European Union, the obligation to hold air liability insurance was regulated by REGULATION (EC) No. 785/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 21, 2004 on insurance requirements for air carriers and aircraft operators. On December 29, 2006, the Minister of Transport issued a regulation deregulating the above-mentioned Regulation on the minimum guaranteed sums with regard to the risk of liability of the aircraft user towards persons on board the aircraft other than crew members. Under this agreement, each user of an aircraft weighing more than 2,700 kg is required to conclude a passenger liability insurance agreement for an amount not lower than 250,000 SDRs. On the other hand, users of aircraft with MTOW below 2,700 kg – may conclude an insurance contract for the sum of 100,000 SDRs, provided that the aircraft performs non-commercial operations.

5) § 11 is replaced by the following: “§ 11.
