Legal and Regulatory Issues in International Aviation

Air law has recently grown in significance. Drawing on international and national instruments and a wealth of case law from many jurisdictions, including the International Court of Justice, this book covers the role of international law in such matters as legal consequences arising from the use of automation in civil aviation, the carriage of the elderly and disabled by air, unlawful interference with civil aviation, protection of the environment, and the legal management of aviation security.
