This strategic alliance lays the foundation for MAWDY to implement Blink’s cutting-edge parametric solutions across its extensive global network. The inaugural phase of this collaboration will witness the integration of Blink’s Flight Delay solution into a range of travel insurance products in the Irish market offered by MAWDY.Under this groundbreaking initiative, eligible MAWDY Ireland policyholders experiencing flight disruptions exceeding three hours will gain real-time access to over 1,300 executive airport lounges worldwide.
Alternatively, they have the option of receiving a cash pay-out. This exclusive benefit extends to both single trip and annual multi-trip travel insurance customers, enhancing their overall travel experience and providing valuable compensation for unexpected delays.

MAWDY solutions power some of the biggest travel insurance brands across multiple continents and we are delighted that our flight disruption solution will now be offered as standard on Gold and Platinum products for an ever-increasing number of MAWDY Ireland’s travel insurance customer base. Our focus is securing partnerships with large insurers and driving growth in our target geographic markets. The travel sector continues to experience frequent and increasingly large-scale disruptive events which is contributing to a heightened industry need to provide an urgent consumer response.
