This book provides a valuable guide to what rights and responsibilities exist in air travel and clarifies the options that consumers and others may have for compensation claims, especially against airlines.
In brief: This is an abridged edition without notes. The full e_book edition is also available from Amazon as is a paperback version. This book is written primarily for Australia and New Zealand but much of it is relevant to other countries. It is a comprehensive guide to the rights and responsibilities of travelling consumers and others who may have been injured, delayed or suffered loss during air travel and want to claim compensation from airlines, airports or others involved in the air travel and aviation industries. Description Have your travel arrangements turned out to be different from what your travel agent or tour operator told you? Did your luggage get lost or damaged or have you been injured or inconvenienced by something that’s happened when travelling by air or at an airport, even during check-in, immigration or security controls? Have you suffered loss from what airlines do; from selling you air travel to looking after you during your flight? Or maybe you've been injured or your property has been damaged by aircraft operating near or flying over your home? Then this book can help you. It talks about the law, which is sometimes complicated; but this book is designed to be read by ordinary people, especially consumers of air travel services, although professionals and students in the aviation, tourism and travel industries may benefit from it as well. Everyone needs a better idea of their rights and responsibilities under the existing legal system. Although this book covers the international and domestic air travel claims situation in Australia and New Zealand, quite a bit of it will apply in other countries as well. It endeavours to make sense of a complicated system of rules and contractual arrangements that affect the rights and responsibilities of travellers, as well as the duties and obligations of the air travel industry and related entities such as airport management and border security. It will be helpful to ordinary people who get caught up with airlines and other organisations involved in the air travel industry, especially if those people want to make a claim for compensation when they suffer some kind of loss or when they are injured by something occurring during or in connection with air travel.
This book offers an extraordinary wealth of information, from the ground up, of the law governing and regulating air transport today, with a strong emphasis on international aviation. A team of distinguished authors in the field of aviation law provide a cogent synthesis from which sound legal opinions and strategies of legal action may be confidently built. Among the many topics here in depth are the following: definition and classification of airspace; distinction between civil and state aircraft; air navigation and air traffic control services; airport charges and overflight charges; structure of ICAO; standard-setting functions and audit functions of ICAO; functions of the International Air Transport Association (IATA); policy and effects of deregulation and liberalization of air transport policy; the International Registry for Aircraft Equipment; air carrier liability regimes and claims procedure; measures to combat aviation terrorism, air piracy and sabotage; and the Open Skies Agreements. This publication cites significant legislation and court rulings, including from the United States and the European Union, where far-reaching measures on market access, competition and passenger rights have set trends for other regions of the world. The special case of Latin America has a chapter to itself. At a time when commercial aircraft have been used as lethal weapons for the first time, aviation law finds itself in the front line of responsibility for maintaining global aviation security.
