Legal Regulation of Air Transportation

Air cargo regulations are based on the provisions of the Warsaw and Montreal conventions. Due to the fact, that many international regulatory documents were created on their basis, it was possible to unify the basic rules for the transport of goods by air. In particular, they determine the carrier’s liability in case of loss or damage to the cargo, and, according to these rules, the carrier is not obliged to compensate for the damage, if the damage occurred through the fault of a person who is interested in compensation. Cargoes, thatcan be used tocontribute to the development of terrorism, and to commit violent acts against people, are forbidden to transport by planes.

Supporting Documents

To send cargo by air, in each case, it is necessary to prepare a set of documents. Incorrectly issued documents will create problems, when sending or receiving cargo, during customs clearance. Therefore, the issue of registration of air transportation of goods must be approached with all responsibility, and even better, entrust this matter to a professional representative.

Basic documents for air cargo:
  • Invoice or proforma bill is a commercial document containing information about the goods value. As a rule, it is made by the seller (sender) to the address of the buyer (recipient).
  • Packing list - this document indicates the name of the cargo, its characteristics, including weight, dimensions and more, as well as its location in the package.
  • Consignment note - confirms the fact of the contract of air transportation of goods between the sender and the carrier, plays a legal role in disputed situations.
  • Cargo manifest - needed to optimize the unloading process in case of shipment at transit airports, contains brief data on the cargo. A separate cargo manifest is required for each transit point.
  • A cargo safety data sheet for air transportation is necessary when transporting dangerous goods that could harm property or human health.

It should be understood, that this list is not final and may contain a number of additional documents, depending on the type of cargo and the specifics of the country of the sender/ recipient. In each case of cargo delivery by air, it is necessary to clarify what documents are required.

Allowed cargo dimensions

When organizing air transportation of goods around the world, the dimensions of the hatch of the aircraft and its luggage compartment must be taken into account. In different models of aircraft, the dimensions of the cargo compartments are different, which imposes restrictions on the dimensions of the cargo. The ability to carry cargo by air is also affected by the weight of the baggage, because it must be proportionate to the carrying capacity of the aircraft.
