Introduction to Air Law comprises extensive sources, including references to the most recent case law and publications. The world of aviation has moved on rapidly since the appearance of the previous edition of this pre-eminent resource five years ago. Those developments pertain to market access and market behaviour by air carriers, including competition, new perceptions of safety and security, in relation to transparency of accident investigation and cybersecurity, case law in the area of airline liability, with new cases from the United States, product liability and insurance, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere, the growing importance of environmental concerns, the rights and obligations of passengers, also in the context of ‘unruly’ passengers, and innovative methods for financing aircraft. This edition contextualises cases and events which have taken place in this highly dynamic field of law.

With special attention to regional integration movements, especially in Europe, affecting the mentioned subjects, the current edition addresses the following topics:

  • the regulatory framework governing the operation of air services, including the principle of sovereignty in national airspace;
  • the distinction between State and civil aircraft;
  • dispute settlement in international civil aviation;
  • economic regulation of international air transport services, including the establishment of air services agreements;
  • inter-airline cooperation in the context of competition law regimes;
  • liability of the various service providers, in particular airlines, and related insurance coverage; the promotion of safety standards;
  • criminal acts affecting the safety of aviation;
  • the role of international and regional organisations with particular reference to that of the European Union; liability of the aircraft manufacturer for equipment; and
  • financial and security interests in mobile equipment.


Practitioners, officials, business people, and academics with a professional interest in aviation law will appreciate this new edition as one of the fundamental works in the field, and newcomers will discover an incomparable resource. This eleventh edition designed to give further guidance is ready to be of unmatched service to any practising member of the air law community and to all those interested in the application of air law.
