II. CONDITIONS OF CONTRACT ON REVERSE SIDE OF THE AIR WAYBILL
NOTICE CONCERNING CARRIERS’ LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
If the carriage involves an ultimate destination or stop in a country other than the country of
departure, the Warsaw Convention or the Montreal Convention may be applicable and in most
cases limit the liability of the Carrier in respect of loss of, damage or delay to cargo.
Depending on the applicable regime, and unless a higher value is declared, liability of the
Carrier may be limited to 17 Special Drawing Rights per kilogram or 250 French gold francs
per kilogram, converted into national currency under applicable law. Carrier will treat 250
French gold francs to be the conversion equivalent of 17 Special Drawing Rights unless a
greater amount is specified in the Carrier's conditions of carriage.
* This Resolution is in the hands of all IATA Cargo Agents.
CONDITIONS OF CONTRACT
1. In this contract and the Notices appearing hereon:
CARRIER includes the air carrier issuing this air waybill and all carriers that carry or undertake
to carry the cargo or perform any other services related to such carriage.
SPECIAL DRAWING RIGHT (SDR) is a Special Drawing Right as defined by the International
WARSAW CONVENTION means whichever of the following instruments is applicable to the
contract of carriage:
the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules Relating to International Carriage by Air,
signed at Warsaw, 12 October 1929;
that Convention as amended at The Hague on 28 September 1955;
that Convention as amended at The Hague 1955 and by Montreal Protocol No. 1, 2, or 4
(1975) as the case may be.
MONTREAL CONVENTION means the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for
International Carriage by Air, done at Montreal on 28 May 1999.
2./2.1 Carriage is subject to the rules relating to liability established by the Warsaw
Convention or the Montreal Convention unless such carriage is not “international carriage” as
defined by the applicable Conventions.
2.2 To the extent not in conflict with the foregoing, carriage and other related services
performed by each Carrier are subject to:
2.2.1 applicable laws and government regulations;
2.2.2 provisions contained in the air waybill, Carrier’s conditions of carriage and related rules,
regulations, and timetables (but not the times of departure and arrival stated therein) and
applicable tariffs of such Carrier, which are made part hereof, and which may be inspected at
any airports or other cargo sales offices from which it operates regular services. When
carriage is to/from the USA, the shipper and the consignee are entitled, upon request, to
receive a free copy of the Carrier’s conditions of carriage. The Carrier’s conditions of carriage
include, but are not limited to:
126.96.36.199 limits on the Carrier’s liability for loss, damage or delay of goods, including fragile or
188.8.131.52 claims restrictions, including time periods within which shippers or consignees must file
a claim or bring an action against the Carrier for its acts or omissions, or those of its agents;
184.108.40.206 rights, if any, of the Carrier to change the terms of the contract;
220.127.116.11 rules about Carrier’s right to refuse to carry;
18.104.22.168 rights of the Carrier and limitations concerning delay or failure to perform service,
including schedule changes, substitution of alternate Carrier or aircraft and rerouting.
3. The agreed stopping places (which may be altered by Carrier in case of necessity) are
those places, except the place of departure and place of destination, set forth on the face
hereof or shown in Carrier’s timetables as scheduled stopping places for the route. Carriage
to be performed hereunder by several successive Carriers is regarded as a single operation.
4. For carriage to which neither the Warsaw Convention nor the Montreal Convention
applies, Carrier’s liability limitation shall not be less than the per kilogram monetary limit set
out in Carrier’s tariffs or general conditions of carriage for cargo lost, damaged or delayed,
provided that any such limitation of liability in an amount less than 17 SDR per kilogram will
not apply for carriage to or from the United States.
5./5.1 Except when the Carrier has extended credit to the consignee without the written
consent of the shipper, the shipper guarantees payment of all charges for the carriage due in
accordance with Carrier’s tariff, conditions of carriage and related regulations, applicable laws
(including national laws implementing the Warsaw Convention and the Montreal Convention),
government regulations, orders and requirements.
5.2 When no part of the consignment is delivered, a claim with respect to such consignment
will be considered even though transportation charges thereon are unpaid.
6./6.1 For cargo accepted for carriage, the Warsaw Convention and the Montreal Convention
permit shipper to increase the limitation of liability by declaring a higher value for carriage and
paying a supplemental charge if required.
6.2 In carriage to which neither the Warsaw Convention nor the Montreal Convention
applies Carrier shall, in accordance with the procedures set forth in its general conditions of
carriage and applicable tariffs, permit shipper to increase the limitation of liability by declaring
a higher value for carriage and paying a supplemental charge if so required.
7./7.1 In cases of loss of, damage or delay to part of the cargo, the weight to be taken into
account in determining Carrier’s limit of liability shall be only the weight of the package or
7.2 Notwithstanding any other provisions, for “foreign air transportation” as defined by the
U.S. Transportation Code:
7.2.1 in the case of loss of, damage or delay to a shipment, the weight to be used in
determining Carrier’s limit of liability shall be the weight which is used to determine the charge
for carriage of such shipment; and
7.2.2 in the case of loss of, damage or delay to a part of a shipment, the shipment weight in
7.2.1 shall be prorated to the packages covered by the same air waybill whose value is
affected by the loss, damage or delay. The weight applicable in the case of loss or damage to
one or more articles in a package shall be the weight of the entire package.
8. Any exclusion or limitation of liability applicable to Carrier shall apply to Carrier’s
agents, employees, and representatives and to any person whose aircraft or equipment is
used by Carrier for carriage and such person’s agents, employees and representatives.
9. Carrier undertakes to complete the carriage with reasonable dispatch. Where
permitted by applicable laws, tariffs and government regulations, Carrier may use alternative
carriers, aircraft or modes of transport without notice but with due regard to the interests of the
shipper. Carrier is authorised by the shipper to select the routing and all intermediate stopping
places that it deems appropriate or to change or deviate from the routing shown on the face
10. Receipt by the person entitled to delivery of the cargo without complaint shall be prima
facie evidence that the cargo has been delivered in good condition and in accordance with the
contract of carriage.
10.1 In the case of loss of, damage or delay to cargo a written complaint must be made to
Carrier by the person entitled to delivery. Such complaint must be made:
10.1.1 in the case of damage to the cargo, immediately after discovery of the damage and at
the latest within 14 days from the date of receipt of the cargo;
10.1.2 in the case of delay, within 21 days from the date on which the cargo was placed at
the disposal of the person entitled to delivery.
10.1.3 in the case of non-delivery of the cargo, within 120 days from the date of issue of the
air waybill, or if an air waybill has not been issued, within 120 days from the date of receipt of
the cargo for transportation by the Carrier.
10.2 Such complaint may be made to the Carrier whose air waybill was used, or to the first
Carrier or to the last Carrier or to the Carrier, which performed the carriage during which the
loss, damage or delay took place.
10.3 Unless a written complaint is made within the time limits specified in 10.1 no action
may be brought against Carrier.
10.4 Any rights to damages against Carrier shall be extinguished unless an action is brought
within two years from the date of arrival at the destination, or from the date on which the
aircraft ought to have arrived, or from the date on which the carriage stopped.
11. Shipper shall comply with all applicable laws and government regulations of any
country to or from which the cargo may be carried, including those relating to the packing,
carriage or delivery of the cargo, and shall furnish such information and attach such
documents to the air waybill as may be necessary to comply with such laws and regulations.
Carrier is not liable to shipper and shipper shall indemnify Carrier for loss or expense due to
shipper’s failure to comply with this provision.
12. No agent, employee or representative of Carrier has authority to alter, modify or waive
any provisions of this contract.
