US Manual of International Air Carriage


Product Description

The US Manual of International Air Carriage is a practical guide to the law of international air transportation, particularly as it applies in the United States under the terms of the Montreal and Warsaw Conventions, as well as US and international judicial authorities. It provides a clear guide to the choice of law and jurisdiction in any specific transportation and explains the legal provisions and principles applicable to a contract of air transportation in given circumstances. The book draws together the numerous and disparate provisions of the treaties governing air transportation into a coherent, organized, and easily accessible framework for the analysis of legal claims and the conduct of international air carriage litigation in the US.

Specialists in aviation law will find this a useful book for easy reference. The book will also serve as a practical guide to practitioners without extensive experience in this field when they are advising clients and handling litigation. Finally, jurists, arbitrators, mediators, and members of the aviation and insurance communities will find it helpful when dealing with claims and losses arising from international air transportation.
