Contracts of Carriage by Land and Air



1. Applicability of common form documents

3.1 Once the applicable law has been identified, reference must be made to the air waybill Conditions of Contract and to the conditions of carriage of the carriers in the case. However, IATA documentation,1 whether arising pursuant to its resolutions or its recommended practices, form the basis of the air waybill Conditions of Contract and of the conditions of carriage of cargo for many air carriers,2 whether or not members of IATA. Accordingly, they are set out here ( et seq.) as common form documents for carriage of goods by air within the UK and for the cross-border carriage of goods by air.
