Understanding the Montreal Convention
The Montreal Convention, previously known as Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air, is international law that was put into place to protect the rights of passengers, as well as establish rules regarding baggage and cargo. This law is applicable to passengers who are injured during international flights.
Under the Montreal Convention:
“The carrier is liable for damage sustained in case of death or bodily injury of a passenger upon condition only that the accident which caused the death or injury took place on board the aircraft or in the course of any of the operations of embarking or disembarking.”
