ANNEX I: AIR CARRIER LIABILITY FOR PASSENGERS AND THEIR BAGGAGE
This information notice summarises the liability rules applied by Community air carriers as required by Community legislation and the Montreal Convention. “SDR” means Special Drawing Rights according to International Monetary Fund (“IMF”). Updated EURO currency value could be found in the IMF website (www.imf.org). The SDR value is around 1,2685€, this value in subject to change due fluctuation. COMPENSATION IN THE CASE OF DEATH OR INJURY There are no financial limits to the liability for passenger injury or death. For damages up to 113,100 SDRs , the air carrier cannot contest claims for compensation. Above that amount, the air carrier can only defend itself against a claim by proving that it was not negligent or otherwise at fault.
ADVANCE PAYMENTS If a passenger is killed or injured, the air carrier must make an advance payment, to cover immediate economic needs, within 15 days from the identification of the person entitled to compensation. In the event of death, this advance payment shall not be less than 16,000 SDRs
PASSENGER DELAYS In case of passenger delay, the air carrier is liable for damage unless it took all reasonable measures to avoid the damage or it was impossible to take such measures. The liability for passenger delay is limited to 4,694
BAGGAGE DELAYS In case of baggage delay, the air carrier is liable for damage unless it took all reasonable measures to avoid the damage or it was impossible to take such measures. The liability for baggage delay is limited to 1,131 SDRs.

LIABILITY OF CONTRACTING AND ACTUAL CARRIERS If the air carrier actually performing the flight is not the same as the contracting air carrier, the passenger has the right to address a complaint or to make a claim for damages against either. If the name or code of an air carrier is indicated on the ticket, that air carrier is the contracting air carrier.
TIME LIMIT FOR ACTION Any action in court must be brought within two years from the date of arrival of the aircraft, or from the date on which the aircraft ought to have arrived.
