The Government do not intend to exempt or limit airlines’ liability. Aviation is an international business and the best route for issues of aviation liability is through reform of the 1952 Rome Convention in the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
The ICAO is currently working to revise the 1952 Rome Convention on third party liability. The next step is for the ICAO legal committee to consider the latest draft of a convention on unlawful interference. The UK will participate in these discussions when they take place next year.
