What’s the transport law?

Transport law is a complex field. Indeed, it comprises travelers transport and goods transport. It’s composed of legal texts which rule people and goods transfer. Those transfers can be national or international. It concerns the land transport, the air transport, rail transport, fluvial and maritime, but also public transport. The transport law implements:

  • To the transport operators: airlines, land transport, ferry boats companies, rail companies, etc.;
  • To the clients and intermediaries: tickets reseller, online booking websites, tour operators, etc.

Conflict sources may involve different ways of transport and make reference to several internal and international conventions. There are some examples of conflict which absolutely need a transport lawyer: personal accident during a trip, damaged goods, collective accident, refunding linked to a transport service..
