EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)


The Carriage by Air Act 1961 gives effect in the United Kingdom to the Warsaw Convention as amended at The Hague, 1955, relating to international carriage by air, and the Carriage by Air Acts (Application of Provisions) Order 1967 makes transitional provision for the application of that Act to carriage still governed by the unamended Warsaw Convention, to which the United Kingdom remains a party, and to carriage governed by the Warsaw Convention as amended by Additional Protocol No. 1 of Montreal 1975.

Under section 2(1) of the Act and articles 5 and 5A of that Order, Her Majesty may by Order in Council from time to time certify, among other things, who are the High Contracting Parties to the Warsaw Convention as amended at The Hague, to the unamended Warsaw Convention, and to the Warsaw Convention as amended by Additional Protocol No. 1 of Montreal 1975, and such an Order is conclusive evidence of the matters so certified.

This Order, which supersedes the Carriage by Air (Parties to Convention) Order 1988, certifies the High Contracting Parties to the Convention as amended at The Hague, the unamended Convention, and the Convention as amended by Additional Protocol No. 1 of Montreal 1975, the territories in respect of which they are parties and the extent to which they have availed themselves of the provisions of the Additional Protocol to the Convention.
