Allianz Partners has become one of the first insurance companies to join the United Nations World Tourism Organisation's (UNWTO) global network of Affiliate Members.
The UNWTO Affiliate Members network brings together key representatives from the private sector and destination management organisations, NGOs and the civil sector, and academia.
Allianz Partners has joined the network through its Spanish business unit to help UNWTO promote safe, responsible, and accessible tourism – with a special focus on travel and mobility protection solutions. It will work with over 500 Affiliate Members to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Ida Luka-Lognoné, the chief executive officer of international health & travel and board member of Allianz Partners, commented: “We are really proud that our expertise is recognized by this UN institution and to contribute to the work of UNWTO, especially at this critical time for global tourism.
“At Allianz Partners, we are deeply involved in the transformation and recovery of the travel industry, in close coordination with our business partners. As a world leader in travel insurance, our primary goal is to continue to protect travellers' safety while enhancing customer confidence with our quality services. Sustainability is an essential issue for the future of travel, and together with other Affiliate Members of the UNWTO, we will increase our efforts towards the common goals of the organization.”
Ion Vilcu, the director of the UNWTO Affiliate Members Department, added: “We are delighted to welcome Allianz Partners to our working groups and know that they will continue to contribute to the travel industry through their focus on the protection of tourists and responsible travel solutions.”
