Blink Parametric strengthens foothold in Canada

Irish insurtech Blink Parametric has strengthened its presence in Canada through the expansion of its partnership with Blue Cross.

The company has expanded its longstanding relationship with Alberta Blue Cross. Blue Cross was an early adopter of Blink's real-time parametric flight disruption solution in 2018.

Blink is designed to deliver real-time solutions to customers, whilst delivering operational efficiency on processing high frequency, low severity claims for insurance partners.

Alberta Blue Cross will be offering policyholders a service whereby individuals can register for flight delay cover up to one hour ahead of their departure time to receive access to an airport lounge for a delay of three hours or more and access to a hotel room for a delay of six hours or more.

Sid Mouncey (pictured), CEO of Blink Parametric, said: "This is an exciting move with Alberta Blue Cross and we are delighted to further strengthen our partnership with Blue Cross across Canada. The travel landscape has certainly changed since our first Blue Cross outing in Ontario and Québec in 2018, as real-time travel solutions have since evolved to become mainstream and must-have. All facets of air travel are certainly stretched right now and proactive insurers like Alberta Blue Cross deploying customer-centric initiatives such as our flight disruption service are making strong headway in restoring the confidence of the travelling public.”
