The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a significant impact on the aviation industry. We saw a 66% plunge in global passenger traffic in 2020 – by far the sharpest decline in the history of aviation. Airlines are increasingly caught in disputes with aircraft lessors, aviation or airport authorities, as well as passengers. In this webinar, we will discuss:
• The rights and remedies available to aircraft owners or lessors under the Cape Town Convention and Aircraft Protocol.
• How airlines are using corporate and debt
restructuring mechanisms to weather through the pandemic.
• The rights of passengers due to ticket or flight cancellations arising from travel restrictions caused by the pandemic.
• Duty of care owed to passengers and liability faced by airlines companies if there is a breach of duty.
