Aviation

BLM has a proven track record of providing aviation claims and litigation solutions to UK airport operators, airlines and the wider aviation industry.  BLM has extensive experience of dealing with recurring issues in airport claims such as the Montreal Convention, apportionment of liability with airlines, subcontractors and other suppliers, Rome II and cross-border litigation.
 
We are fully conversant with the regulatory and risk issues arising from the operational activities of serving huge numbers of passengers. Our experience enables us to understand the activities, interactions and liability risks of the various stakeholders – airport operators, airlines, ground handling organisations and airport service providers. We are well-versed in defending claims that are particular to the aviation industry such as airside RTAs and claims brought by airport personnel involving conditions such as repetitive stress injury, upper limb disorders and cumulative back injury, related to the lifting, loading and unloading of baggage and cargo, as well as cases of airside deafness arising from prolonged exposure to airport concourse noise.
