1999 Montreal Convention: CJEU rules that also employers may be entitled to compensation

The Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) ruled that employers may also be entitled to receive compensation under the 1999 Montreal Convention (MC) on liability of international air carriers. Furthermore, the Court found that compensation under the MC is provided per passenger; therefore, an employer who has booked tickets for more than one employees can claim higher amounts of compensation than each employee could claim individually.
