If the Carrier issues a Ticket for a carriage service performed by another Carrier or if the Carrier checks in Baggage on behalf of another Carrier, the Carrier shall only act as an agent in the name and on behalf of said other Carrier.
15.2. The Carrier’s liability may not exceed the amount of proven direct Damage and the Carrier shall not be liable, in any way, for consequential Damage or any form of non compensatory Damage. The Carrier is not liable for Damage that results from compliance by the Carrier with any provisions of the law or regulations (laws, regulations, decisions, requirements and provisions) or a failure to comply with said same provisions by the Passenger.
15.3. If the Carrier proves that the Damage was caused or contributed to by the negligence or other wrongful act or omission of the person claiming compensation or whose rights he/she exercises or from whose rights such person derives its right, the Carrier shall be wholly or partially exonerated from its liability to the extent that such negligence or wrongful act or omission caused or contributed to the Damage. This paragraph applies to all the liability provisions in these Conditions. The Carrier will not be liable for any Damage arising from compliance with applicable local laws or government rules and regulations, or from the Passenger’s failure to comply with the same, except as may be provided by the Warsaw Convention or the Montreal Convention.
15.4. Nothing in these Conditions a) gives up or waives any exclusion or limitation of liability available under the Warsaw Convention, or the Montreal Convention or applicable local law unless otherwise expressly stated in writing; or (b) prevents us from excluding or limiting the Carrier’s liability under the Warsaw Convention, or the Montreal Convention, as applicable, or under any other laws which apply, or gives up any defence available to us thereunder against any public social security body or any person liable to pay, or who has paid, compensation for the death, wounding or other bodily injury of a Passenger.
15.5. In the event of death, wounding or other bodily injury of Passenger by an accident subject to the rules and limitations of applicable law as well as the following supplementary rules, the liability of the Carrier for proven Damages will not be subject to any financial limit, be it defined by law, the Warsaw Convention or otherwise. For any proven Damages up to the equivalent of 100,000 SDRs (or, where the Montreal Convention is applicable, the equivalent of 128,821 SDRs), any defense based on proof that the Carrier or its agents have taken all necessary measures to avoid the damage, or that it was impossible for such measures to have been taken, will not apply;
15.6. The Carrier will make payments to the Passenger (or, in case of death, to his heirs) subject to the following terms and conditions: (a) the person receiving payment is a natural person; (b) the person receiving payment is, entitled to compensation under applicable laws; (c) payments will be made only in respect of immediate economic needs; (d) the amount of a payment will be proportional to the economic hardship being suffered as a result of the death, wounding or bodily injury, save that, in the case of death, it will not be less than the equivalent of 16,000 SDRs per Passenger. Subject to applicable law, said advance shall be paid within 15 days of the identification of the beneficiary of the relevant payment.
15.7. The Carrier accepts no liability to Unchecked Baggage, unless the Damage to such Unchecked Baggage was caused by a gross negligence on the part of the Carrier. No liability for the Damage to the Checked Baggage or Unchecked Baggage is accepted in case such Damage resulted form the inherent defect, quality or vice of the Baggage as well in case of fair wear and tear of Baggage resulting from the usual and normal rigours of transportation by air.
15.8. The Carrier’s liability for Damage to the Baggage is limited to the following: (1) the equivalent of 332 SDRs per Passenger to Unchecked Baggage where the Warsaw Convention applies to your carriage; (2) the equivalent of 17 SDRs per kilogram to Damage to Checked Baggage where the Warsaw Convention applies; (3) the equivalent of 1,288 SDRs per Passenger to both Unchecked and Checked Baggage where the Montreal Convention applies; (4) the limit of liability for Damage to both Unchecked and Checked Baggage laid down by local law where local law applies instead of the Warsaw Convention or the Montreal Convention; (5) the limits of liability for Damage to both Unchecked and Checked Baggage specified in (a) and (b) above apply to Damage to Unchecked Baggage and Checked Baggage respectively where neither the Warsaw Convention nor the Montreal Convention applies and no limit of our liability is laid down by applicable local law. Higher liability of the Carrier may arise in case where an Excess Value Declaration was completed by the Passenger pursuant to Article 9.12 hereof.
15.9. In case of delay in the carriage of the Baggage, the liability of Carrier shall be limited to 1,288 SDR’s for each Passenger. In case of delay in the carriage of the Passengers, the Carrier’s liability for Damage caused by delay is limited by the Warsaw Convention and the Montreal Convention. In the case of carriage governed by the Montreal Convention, the respective liability will be limited to the equivalent of 5,346 SDRs. Where neither of those Conventions applies, the Carrier will have no liability for delay, except as provided in these Conditions. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Article 15.9, the Carrier shall not be liable for any Damage occasioned by delay if Carrier proves that it and its servants and agents took all measures that could reasonably be required to avoid the Damage, or that it was impossible for it or them to take such measures.
16.1. The receipt of Checked Baggage without complaint is prima facie evidence that the Baggage was delivered and accepted in good condition and in accordance with the Contract of Carriage, unless the Passenger provides proof to the contrary. All missing Baggage must be declared to the Carrier as soon as possible after the arrival of the flight. Any declarations made subsequently will not be taken into account.
16.2. In the event of damage, the Passenger must complain to the Carrier forth with after the discovery of the damage, and, at the latest, within 7 days from the date of receipt in the case of Checked Baggage. In the event of delay, the complaint must be made at the latest within 21 days from the date on which the Baggage has been placed at his/her disposal. Every complaint must be made in writing and given or dispatched within the times aforesaid. If no complaint is made within the times aforesaid, no action shall lie against the Carrier, save in the case of fraud on its part.
16.3. All claims and rights to Damages, other than with respect to the Baggage as specified in Articles 16.1 and 16.2, shall be extinguished if an action is not brought within a period of two years from the date of arrival at the destination or from the date on which the aircraft ought to have arrived, or from the date on which the carriage stopped.
16.4. All claims or actions referred to in this Article 16 must be made in writing within the prescribed time limits.
