Carriage by Contracting/Actual Carriers

AuthorJohn D. Holding
Chapter 7: Carriage by Contracting/
Actual Carriers
The introduction of the practice of code-sharing between carriers
gave rise to the Guadalajara Supplementary Convention1which
was supplementary to the Warsaw Convention. The Guadalajara
provisions were adopted in the Montreal Convention.
These provisions apply when the contracting carrier makes a
contract of carriage by ticket or air waybill with the passenger or
consignee, and another carrier actually performs all or part of the
carriage under the authority of the contracting carrier.2
The contracting carrier is subject to the rules of the Conventions
for the whole of the carriage contract, and the actual carrier is sub-
ject for that part of the carriage it performs.3
