Canadian Manual of International Air Carriage

Canadian Manual of International Air Carriage

By John D Holding


The Canadian Manual of International Air Carriage is a practical guide to the law of international air carriage, particularly as it applies in Canada under the Carriage by Air Act and Canadian judicial authorities. It provides a clear guide to the choice of law and jurisdiction in any specific carriage and explains the legal provisions and principles applicable to a contract of air carriage in given circumstances. The book draws together the numerous and disparate provisions of the treaties governing air carriage into a coherent, organised, and easily accessible framework for the analysis of legal claims and the conduct of international air carriage litigation in Canada.

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 carriage.
