carriage by air

carriage by air

a contract to carry goods or passengers by air. Carriage of goods by air is effected under a contract between the consignor and the carrier, with the rights and liabilities of the parties being governed by contract law. In the case of international carriage by air, however, certain international conventions, e.g. the MONTREAL CONVENTION to which the UK is a party, impose limits on the nature and extent of carriers' liability. These conventions also deal with such matters as who can sue and be sued, rights to stops in transit, the documentation of air carriage and time limits for complaints.
