Warsaw Convention

An international agreement regulating legal liability for passengers, luggage and cargo traveling by air. The Warsaw Convention denotes liability limits in French francs (which are obsolete) and Special Drawing Rights (which are not). It set a two-year limit for a passenger to make a claim against an airline and requires airlines to issue tickets for passengers and checked luggage. The Convention was signed in 1929 and has been amended a few times since.
