Any Where, Any Size, Any Type - All Cargo Welcome

Montreal 1999

The Montreal Convention (formally,the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air) is a multilateral treaty adopted by a diplomatic meeting of ICAO member states in 1999.It amended important provisions of the Warsaw Convention's regime concerning compensation for the victims of air disasters.

The Convention attempts to re-establish uniformity and predictability of rules relating to the international carriage of passengers, baggage and cargo.Whilst maintaining the core provisions which have served the international air transport community for several decades (i.e., the Warsaw regime),the new treaty achieves modernization in a number of key areas.

It protects passengers by introducing a two-tier liability system that eliminates the previous requirement of proving willful neglect by the air carrier to obtain more than $75,000 in damages, which should eliminate or reduce protracted litigation.
