Inflation Adjustments to Montreal Convention Liability Limits

About this Document

This notice provides guidance to U.S. and certain foreign air carriers on inflation adjustments to liability limits of air carriers and foreign air carriers under the Montreal Convention (Convention). The adjustments affect limits on liability for damages for passenger death or injury, delay in passenger’s arrival, and the loss, delay or damage to baggage or cargo, increasing those limits by approximately 13 percent and will be effective in December 2009. The U.S. and foreign air carriers affected by these changes to the Convention include those providing international carriage between countries that, like the United States, are parties to the Convention, and all who provide round trip foreign air transportation that originates and terminates in the United States.
