Restrictions & disclaimer
If the passenger's journey involves an ultimate destination or stop in a country other than the country of departure the Warsaw Convention may be applicable and the Convention governs and in most cases limits the liability of carriers for death or personal injury and in respect of loss of or damage to baggage.
EU Notice requirement (for EU countries only)
If your journey involves a destination or stop in a country other than the one from which you depart, the Warsaw Convention may govern the liability of all airlines involved in you journey, including any portion thereof within a single country. This Convention limits the liability of airlines for death or bodily injury and for baggage loss, delay or damage. Many air carriers, including all European Community air carriers, have waived the Warsaw Convention limits for death or bodily injury and the defence that they have taken all necessary measures to avoid the damage for the first 1000.000 Special Drawing rights of any such claim.
In addition, in cases of death or bodily injury, many air carriers will make advance payments to the person entitled to compensation, if required to meet immediate economic needs, in proportion to the hardship suffered. Community air carriers make such payments in accordance with Community law. Other air carriers may apply alternate provisions.
