Liability of Successive Carriers

AuthorJohn D. Holding
Chapter 6: Liability of Successive
The Montreal and Warsaw Conventions both provide that, in the
case of carriage performed by several successive carriers, each car-
rier who accepts passengers, baggage, or cargo is subject to the
rules of the Conventions and deemed to be a party to the contract
of carriage insofar as it relates to that part of the carriage per-
formed by that carrier.1
Action for passenger death, injury, or delay can be taken only
against the carrier which performed the carriage during which the
death, injury, or delay occurred.2
