|Title:||Montreal Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air|
|Alternative Title(s):||Montreal Convention|
|Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air|
|Entry Into Force Date:||2003-11-04|
|Description:||The Montreal Convention is designed to supersede the Warsaw Convention and its protocols (Article 55). It standardizes the various liability regimes under which carriers now operate.
Among its most important provisions is Article 33, which permits a plaintiff to bring an action against a carrier for the death or injury of passengers in the territory of the State in which a passenger resides at the time of the accident. The Montreal Convention also removes the cap on carrier liability to accident victims and holds carriers strictly liable for proven damages up to 100,000 Special Drawing Rights (standardized international currency measure).
