Iata Intercarrier Agreement 1995

Signed this_____ day of WHEREAS: The Warsaw Convention is of great use for international air transport; AND IN ANM. THAT: The limits of responsibility of the Convention, which have not been changed since 1955, are now totally inadequate in most countries and international airlines have previously acted together to increase them for the benefit of passengers; 3. Reserves its right of appeal to any other person, including dues or compensation, with respect to the amounts paid by the carrier. Such a waiver by an air carrier may be subject to the passenger`s right of residence, which governs the calculation of compensatory damages reimbursable under the intercarrier agreement. But it`s an option. If an air carrier wishes to waive the limits of liability, but does not wish to insist on the law of the passenger`s place of residence, which governs the calculation of the loss of refundable compensation or is not required by a public authority, it may invoke the law of the jurisdiction before which the case is filed. The Intercarrier agreement is an “Umbrella agreement”; the exact legal rights and responsibilities of the signatory carriers with respect to passengers are defined in the terms of transport and the applicable fare declarations. 8. Any airline may withdraw from this agreement by granting the Director General of IATA and the other airlines parties to the agreement a written withdrawal period of twelve (12) months.

5. Implement the provisions of this agreement by 1 November 1996 or after receipt of the necessary administrative authorizations, with the subsequent date being chosen. 6. The fact that this agreement is not affected affects the rights of the passenger or applicant who is available elsewhere under the agreement. 4. Encourage other airlines involved in international passenger transport to apply the terms of this agreement to this transport. The defence of the Warsaw Convention system remains available to the signatories of the convention, in whole or in part, unless an air carrier decides to renounce it or is invited to do so by a government authority. 1. to take steps to waive the limitation of liability for refundable damages under Article 22, paragraph 1 of the Warsaw Convention, with respect to claims for the death, injury or assault of a passenger within the meaning of Article 17 of the Agreement, so that refundable damages can be established and awarded in accordance with the passenger`s right of residence. (7) That this agreement may be signed in any number of equivalents, all of which constitute an agreement. Any air carrier can become a contracting party to the agreement by signing a counter-piece of this agreement and filing with the Director General of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

2. reserve all available defences in accordance with the provisions of the convention; However, any air carrier may waive any defence, including the waiver of any defence up to a certain amount of money from the refundable compensatory damage, as circumstances may justify. The signatories of the agreement commit to waiving the limitations of responsibility provided by the Warsaw Convention (1929), the Hague Protocol (1955), the 1966 Montreal Convention and/or the boundaries they may have to implement or implement by governments.
