Article 2: Scope of application

 

2.1 General provisions

(b) These Conditions of Carriage have been drawn up pursuant to the Montreal Convention of 28 May 1999 and the European and Luxembourg law in force.

 

2.2 Charter operations

 

If carriage is performed pursuant to a Charter Agreement, these Conditions of Carriage apply only to the extent they are incorporated by reference or otherwise in the Charter Agreement or the Ticket.

 

2.3 Code Shares

 

On some services, we have arrangements with other Carriers known as a “Code Share”. This means that even if you have a reservation with us and hold a Ticket where our name or Airline Designator Code (LG) is indicated as the Carrier, another Carrier may operate the aircraft. If such arrangements apply, we will advise you of the Carrier operating the aircraft at the time you make a reservation.

 

For Code Share services on flights operated by another Carrier, these Conditions of Carriage shall apply. However, Code Share partners may possibly have conditions that apply to the operation of their own flights, which may differ from Luxair’s Conditions of Carriage for flights operated by Luxair. These Conditions of Carriage stipulated by other Code Share partners may, for this reason, apply additionally to the present Conditions of Carriage, thus forming part of the Contract of Carriage.

 

You should read through the conditions for flights operated by another Carrier in the context of a Code Share agreement and familiarise yourself with, for example, check-in times, requirements and policies regarding the carriage of unaccompanied minors, carriage of animals, refusal of carriage, oxygen devices, operational irregularities, denied-boarding compensation and Baggage etc.

 

2.4 Information on the identity of the operating Carrier

 

Upon reservation, the air carriage contractor will inform you of the identity of the operating air Carrier or Carriers. When the identity of the operating air Carrier is not yet known at the time of reservation, the air carriage contractor will provide you as soon as possible with this information and at the latest at the check-in or on boarding where no check-in is required for a connecting flight.

 

2.5 Overriding law

 

These Conditions of Carriage are applicable unless they are inconsistent with applicable law that cannot be waived by agreement of the Parties, in which event such laws shall prevail. If any provision of these Conditions of Carriage is invalid under any applicable law, the other provisions shall nevertheless remain valid.

 

2.6 Conditions prevail over regulations

 

Except as provided in these Conditions of Carriage, in the event of inconsistency between these Conditions of Carriage and any other regulations of Luxair dealing with particular subjects, these Conditions of Carriage shall prevail.

 

Article 3: Tickets

 

3.1 General Provisions

 

3.1.1 The Ticket constitutes conclusive evidence of the Contract of Carriage between us, and the Passenger named in the Ticket. The carriage service is only provided to the Passenger named on the Ticket. Luxair reserves the right to check the identity documents of Passengers. Passengers shall be able to provide Luxair with proof of their identity as well as the identity of those for whom they are responsible, at any time, during their journey.

 

3.1.2 A Ticket is not transferable. If a person is travelling with a Ticket and presents this Ticket for carriage or refund purposes, Luxair shall not assume any liability if, while acting in good faith, it carries or refunds the person presenting the Ticket.

 

3.1.3 Tickets can be sold at discounted Fares and may therefore be partially or completely non-refundable/non-changeable. It is the Passenger’s responsibility, when making a reservation, to consult the applicable conditions regarding the use of the Ticket and, if necessary, to take the appropriate insurance to cover circumstances where Passenger has to cancel his journey.

 

3.1.4 If a Passenger has a discounted Ticket, as described in article 3.1.3 above, which he has not used in whole or in part for reasons of Force Majeure, provided that the Passenger promptly advises us and furnishes evidence of such Force Majeure, we will provide to the Passenger either, at our discretion: (i) a credit of the non-refundable amount of Fare, for future travel on our services, valid for one year, or (ii) a refund, within a reasonable time, of the part of the Fare which, as a general rule, is non-refundable. In both cases, we are entitled to deduct an administration fee.

 

3.1.5 The Ticket is and remains at all times the property of the issuing Carrier. The Ticket constitutes prima evidence of the contract of carriage between Luxair and the Passenger. The Contract of Carriage contained in the Ticket are a summary of the provisions of these Conditions of Carriage.

 

3.2 Requirement for Ticket 

 

Except in the case of an Electronic Ticket, you shall not be entitled to be carried on a flight unless you present a valid Ticket issued on your name containing the Flight Coupon for that flight and all other unused Flight Coupons and the Passenger Coupon. In addition, you shall not be entitled to be carried if the Ticket presented is damaged or if it has been altered or modified by a person otherwise than by us or our Authorised Agents. In the case of an Electronic Ticket, you shall not be entitled to be carried on a flight unless you provide positive identification and a valid Electronic Ticket has been duly issued in your name.

 

3.3 Loss of Ticket

 

3.3.1 In case of loss or damage to all or part of a Ticket or non-presentation of a Ticket containing the Passenger Coupon and all unused Flight Coupons, and upon your request, we will replace such Ticket or part of it by issuing a new Ticket, provided there is evidence, readily ascertainable at the time, that a Ticket valid for the flight(s) in question was duly issued. We may charge an administration fee to do so but we will not charge the original Fare again. We may require you, in the form of our choosing, to undertake to reimburse us for the Fare of the replacement Ticket in the event of and in so far as the lost ticket or flight Coupon is used by a third party for the purpose of carriage or a refund.

 

3.3.2 Where such evidence is not available or you do not sign such undertaking, the Carrier issuing the new Ticket may require you to pay up to the full Ticket price for a replacement Ticket, subject to refund if and when the original issuing Carrier is satisfied that the lost or damaged Ticket has not been used before the expiry of its validity. If, upon finding the original Ticket before the expiry of its validity, you surrender it to the Carrier issuing the new Ticket, the foregoing refund will be processed at that time.

 

3.3.3 A Ticket is valuable and you should take appropriate measures to safeguard it and ensure it is not lost or stolen.

 

3.4 Period of Validity 

 

3.4.1 Except as otherwise provided in the Ticket or in these Conditions of Carriage or in a applicable Tariff, (which may limit the validity of a Ticket, in which case the limitation will be shown on the Ticket), a Ticket is valid for:

 

(a) One year from the date of issue; or

 

(b) Subject to the first travel occurring within one year from the date of issue, one year from the date of first travel under the Ticket.

 

3.4.2 If you are prevented from travelling within the period of validity of the Ticket because we are unable to confirm a reservation, the validity period of this Ticket will be extended to the first possible date upon which we can confirm your reservation, or you will be entitled to a refund in accordance with Article 10.

 

3.4.3  If, after having started your journey, you are prevented, for health reasons, from continuing your journey during the validity period of the Ticket, we will extend the validity of the Ticket until the date on which you are once again in the position to travel or, if later, until the date of the first available flight, upon presentation of an appropriate medical certificate stating the health reasons that prevented you from continuing your journey and provided that these health reasons were not known when the reservation was made. Said extension shall only start at the point at which the journey was interrupted and shall be valid for carriage in the class of the Fare initially paid. The validity of the Ticket shall be extended for not more than three months from the date shown on the medical certificate submitted. In the same way and subject to compliance with the conditions of proof specified above, the Carrier may, on request, extend the validity of Tickets of immediate family members who were accompanying you at the time such health problems caused you to discontinue your journey. 

 

3.4.4 In the event of death of a Passenger during the journey, the Tickets of the persons accompanying the Passenger may be modified by waiving the minimum stay requirements or by extending the validity period of said Ticket. In the event of a death of an immediate family member of a Passenger who has commenced his journey, the validity of the Passenger’s Tickets and those of the immediate family accompanying the Passenger may likewise be modified in the same way. Any modification shall be made upon receipt of a valid death certificate and any extension of validity shall not exceed a period longer than forty-five (45) days from the date of death.

 

3.5 Coupon Sequence and Use 

 

3.5.1 The Fare established on the basis of the details, flight dates and routes mentioned on the Ticket corresponds to a departure point and an arrival point, via any Stopover scheduled when the Ticket was purchased, and forms an integral part of the Contract of Carriage. The Fare applied on the Ticket issue date is only valid for a Ticket used fully and in the sequential order of Flight Coupons, for the specified journey and on the specified dates.

 

If carriage is not used in the sequence anticipated on the Ticket, this may result in a recalculation of the Fare according to your altered routing. This will not apply if the Passenger is unable to fly due to unexpected events (i) beyond the reasonable control of Passenger, (ii) for which the Passenger is not responsible and (iii) which reasonably prevent the Passenger from using all the Coupons of the Ticket in their contemplated sequential order subject to the conditions that the Passenger informs Luxair as early as possible before the departure of the unused flight and at the latest 24 hours following such departure, and provides relevant documentary evidence of the above reasons as soon as possible. In case of recalculation, the Passenger may be required to pay an additional Fare equating to the difference between the Fare initially paid and the Fare that the Passenger should have paid when the Ticket was issued, for the journey actually made by the Passenger. This Fare may be higher or lower than the Fare that the Passenger originally paid. If the category of Fare the Passenger originally booked was not available for the altered routing on the day of the booking, the cheapest available Fare category for the Passenger altered routing will be taken as the basis for the recalculation. Please note that Luxair can make carriage dependent on whether Passenger has paid this difference in price.

 

If you have a refundable Ticket, as defined by the Fare conditions, and have still not flown a single segment of it, you may ask for a refund of the price of the Ticket in accordance with Fare conditions. This means that you will forfeit your entitlement to carriage.

 

3.5.2 Changes that the Passenger wishes to make are subject to the Fare conditions attached to their Ticket and to payment of the applicable administration fees.

  

3.6 Carrier’s identification 

 

Carrier’s identification may be shown as an abbreviation on the Ticket using its Airline Designator Code. The Carrier’s address is deemed to be that of its registered office or principal place of business.

4.1 Fares

 

Fares apply only for carriage from the airport at the point of departure to the airport at the point of destination, unless otherwise expressly stated. Fares do not include ground transport service between airports or between airports and city centers. The price of the Ticket is calculated in accordance with the Fares applicable on the day the Passenger books his Ticket for the flight dates and itinerary shown on his ticket. Should you change your itinerary or journey date, this may have an impact on the applicable Fare. The Fare may include surcharges levied by the Carrier.

 

4.2 Taxes

 

All applicable Taxes shall be paid by the Passenger. At the time the Passenger purchases his Ticket, the Passenger will be advised of the Taxes which will be included in the Fare which, in most of the cases, are shown separately on the Ticket. Taxes imposed on air travel may be created or increased by a government, another authority or an airport operator after booking and can be imposed after the date of the reservation. In this case, the Passenger must pay the corresponding amount. Similarly, in the event Taxes are abolished or reduced, the Passenger may be refunded for the reduced or abolished amounts. Should Passenger not travel on a flight for which he/she has a confirmed reservation, the Passenger will benefit from a refund of said Taxes, payment of which is connected to actual boarding of the Passenger in accordance with the applicable regulations.

 

4.3 Currency 

 

Subject to applicable law, Fares and Taxes are payable in any currency acceptable to us, unless another currency is indicated by us or imposed by the applicable law. When payment is made in the country of departure in a currency other than the currency in which the Fare is published, the exchange rate for such payment will be the banker’s buying rate set by us on the day the Ticket is issued.

 

4.4 Credit card surcharge

 

A surcharge may apply to reservations made with a credit card as specified at the time of reservation. This charge covers the extra cost associated with credit card payments. Under certain circumstances you may be subject to additional fees imposed by your card issuer. Any query relating to such fees must be directed to the card issuer.

 

Article 5: Reservations

 

5.1  General provisions

 

Each Coupon will be accepted only for carriage in the class specified on it and for the day and flight for which there is a reservation.

Certain Fares are under conditions which limit or exclude your right to change or cancel reservation(s) or to request a refund. For the individual terms please refer to the respective Fare conditions. 

 

5.2 Ticketing Time Limits

This may be necessary for operational, safety or security reasons or for reasons of Force Majeure. Luxair shall make reasonable effort to meet Passenger’s requirement regarding the services provided on board aircraft, in particular drinks, special meals, movies, etc. However, Luxair may not be held liable if imperatives relating to security and safety or reasons of Force Majeure do not allow it to provide suitable services, even if such services are confirmed at the time of reservation. The type of aircraft indicated to the Passenger at the time of the reservation or subsequently is stated for information purposes only. Imperatives relating to security and safety, reasons of Force Majeure may lead Luxair to modify the type of aircraft, without any liability on its part.

 

5.5 Seating reservation subject to reservation charges

 

If you have paid for your seat reservation, you have a right to a certain seat. In case of rebooking made by us (except in cases of complementary up-grades), in case of flight cancellation or in the event of changes made by us for operational, safety, security or other reasons we will refund you the amount paid for your seat reservation if your desired seat is not available. If you cancel or rebook your Ticket the amount paid for the seat reservation will not be refunded.

 

5.6 Reconfirmation of Reservations 

 

Luxair does not require reconfirmation for Luxair’s flights. If other Carriers require the Passenger to reconfirm onward or return reservations, the failure to comply with this requirement will entitle the Carriers to cancel the onward or return reservation. Passenger should check the reconfirmation requirements of any other Carriers involved in his journey. If required, Passenger must reconfirm with the Carrier whose Airline Designator Code appears for the relevant flight on the Ticket.

 

Article 6: Check-in and Boarding

Should you fail to do so or should you not present all the documents allowing you to be checked-in and therefore be unable to travel, we are entitled to cancel your reservation.

Information about unacceptable items is available upon request.

 

8.3.3 We may refuse to accept Baggage for carriage unless it is in our reasonable opinion properly and securely packed in suitable containers such that under normal conditions it will arrive undamaged.

 

8.4 Search of Passengers and Baggage 

 

For reasons of safety and security, we may require you to permit a search or screening of your person and your Baggage, as well as an X-ray of your Baggage. If you do not agree to a search of your person or Baggage to determine the presence of articles which are inadmissible or which have not been presented in compliance with paragraph 8.2, we may refuse to carry you and your Baggage; your right to compensation in such cases will be limited to the refund of the air Fare in accordance with Article 10.3. of these Conditions of Carriage. 

 

8.5 Checked Baggage 

 

8.5.1 The Passenger must hand over Baggage at the Carrier’s check-in desk or at the self service drop off point for the purpose of checking in prior to the Check-in Deadline. As soon as Passengers have handed over their Baggage at check-in, under the aforementioned conditions, the Carrier shall take custody thereof and issue Passengers with a Baggage Check, for each item that of Checked Baggage. 

 

8.5.2 Checked Baggage must have Passenger’s name or other personal identification affixed to it.

 

8.5.3 Checked Baggage will, whenever possible, be carried on the same aircraft as the Passenger, unless Luxair decides for safety, security or operational reasons to carry it on an alternative flight. If the Passenger’s Checked Baggage is carried on a subsequent flight Luxair will deliver it to the Passenger, unless applicable law requires the Passenger to be present for customs clearance.

 

8.5.4  Passengers are advised not to put in their Checked Baggage currency, jewellery, works of art, precious metals, silverware, securities, or other valuables, optical or photographic equipment, computers, electronic and/ or telecommunication equipment or devices, musical instruments, passports and identity documents, keys, business documents, manuscripts or deeds, whether individualized or fungible etc. In this respect, it is specified that in the event of destruction, loss or damage of Checked Baggage, the Carrier will only be liable to the extent defined by the Montreal Convention and Article 15 of these Conditions of Carriage.

 

8.6 Unchecked Baggage 

 

8.6.1 Luxair may specify maximum dimensions for Baggage which the Passenger carries on to the aircraft. If Luxair has not done so, Baggage that the Passenger carries onto the aircraft must fit under the seat in front of the Passenger or in an enclosed storage compartment in the cabin of the aircraft. If the Passenger’s Baggage cannot be stored in this manner, or is of excessive weight, or is considered unsafe for any reason, it must be carried as Checked Baggage.

 

8.6.2 Objects not suitable for carriage in the overhead enclosed compartment in the cabin of the aircraft (such as delicate musical instruments), and which do not meet the requirements in article 8.6.1 above, will only be accepted for carriage in the cabin compartment if the Passenger has given Luxair notice in advance and permission has been granted by Luxair. Passenger may have to pay a separate charge for this service.

 

8.6.3 Passengers are responsible for personal effects and Unchecked Baggage that they take into the cabin. In the event of the destruction, theft, loss or damage of personal effects and Unchecked Baggage, the Carrier may only be held liable if wrongdoing on its part, or that of its officials or agents, is proven, said liability being limited to the amount defined in Article 14 of the Conditions of Carriage.

8.7.3 If a person claiming the Baggage is unable to produce the Baggage Check and identify the Baggage by means of a Baggage Tag if one has been issued, Luxair will deliver the Baggage to such person only on condition that it establishes to Luxair’s satisfaction its right thereto.

 

8.7.4 If you do not collect your Checked Baggage within three months from the Baggage being made available to you, we may dispose of said Baggage without being liable to you.

 

8.8 Pets and Guide Dogs 

 

8.8.1 The carriage of dogs, cats and other pets is subject to our approval and the following conditions: the animals must be properly crated and accompanied by current health and vaccination certificates, entry permits, and other entry or transit documents required by the respective countries. We reserve the right to determine the manner of carriage and to limit the number of animals which may be carried on a flight.

 

8.8.2 The weight of accompanied pets including the weight of containers and food carried shall not be included in the free Baggage allowance of the Passenger and the Passenger must pay a surcharge, the conditions of which are available from the Carrier.

 

8.8.3 Guide dogs, service animals, and if applicable their cages, accompanying Passengers with Reduced Mobility will be carried free of charge, in addition to the applicable Baggage allowance, when possible in the cabin and subject to the conditions of paragraph 8.8.4.  

 

8.8.4 Please note that to ensure the safe and undisturbed operation of the flight, your pet must be trained to behave well in a public space. We allow you to take your pet with you in the cabin under the condition that it is obedient to your commands and behaves appropriately. If your pet does not behave in an appropriate manner, you may be required to muzzle it, to allow its transfer to the cargo hold (if a transport container is available) or carriage may be refused.

 

Animals travelling in the cabin (including their transport container, when appropriate) must fit in the footwell of your seat and be suitably secured throughout their entire stay on board.

 

8.8.5 You are responsible for the safety, health and behaviour of your pet and accept liability for all entry, exit, health and other regulations that apply to the entry into or travel through any relevant countries. You are liable for all costs resulting from non-compliance with these responsibilities, as well as for all damage caused by the animal accompanying you and release us from any liability, except where we have caused the damage wilfully or by gross negligence.

 

Article 9: Schedules, Delays, Cancellation of Flights, denied boarding and downgrading

 

9.1 Schedules

 

9.1.1 The flight times shown in timetables may change between the date of publication and the date the Passenger actually travels. Luxair does not guarantee them to the Passenger and they do not form part of the contract between Luxair and the Passenger.

 

9.1.2  Before Luxair accepts the booking of the Passenger, Luxair will notify the Passenger of scheduled flight time in effect as of the time, and it will be shown on the Passenger’s Ticket. It is the Passengers’ responsibility to provide to Luxair with their contact details so that they can be contacted in the event of a change in the planned schedules as they appear on the Ticket. If, after the Passenger has purchased his Ticket, Luxair makes a significant change to the scheduled flight time, which is not acceptable to the Passenger, Passenger will be entitled to a refund in accordance with article 10.2. If the legal liability rules apply, Luxair offers compensation and assistance according to regulation 261/2004.

 

9.2 Cancellation and Delays 

 

9.2.1 We make every effort to avoid delays. In exercising these efforts and in order to prevent flight cancellations, the measures taken may include arranging for your flight on an alternative aircraft or with a different airline.

 

9.2.2 In the event of a flight cancellation or delay, the Carrier will implement all the provisions of the applicable regulations. Information relating to passenger rights in case of delays and cancellations is available from the Carrier and its Authorized Agents and on our website.

 

9.3 Denied boarding and downgrading

 

9.3.1 In the event the Carrier decides to deny boarding the Passenger, due to overbooking, with the result that the Carrier is not in a position to offer a seat to the Passenger, even though the Passenger has a valid Ticket and has arrived for check-in and boarding in accordance with the required timeframes and conditions, the Carrier shall grant the Passenger the compensation provided for by the relevant applicable regulations, where applicable.

 

9.3.2 In the event that the Passenger is placed in a lower cabin compartment than that for which the Ticket was purchased, this is called downgrading, and the Carrier will offer refund under the conditions specified by the relevant applicable regulations. Information relating to passenger rights in case of denied boarding and downgrading is available from the Carrier and its Authorised Agents and on the Luxair’s website.

10.5.3 Luxair will refuse a refund for a stolen, forged or counterfeit Ticket.

 

10.6 Currency

The refundable amount to be credited to the credit card account of the card owner can vary from the originally debited amount by the credit card company for the Ticket due to differences in conversion. Such variances do not entitle the recipient of the refund to a claim against us.

 

Article 11: Conduct Aboard Aircraft

 

11.1 General

 

If, in our reasonable opinion, the Passenger conducts himself aboard the aircraft so as to endanger the aircraft or any person or property on board, or obstructs the crew in the performance of their duties, or fails to comply with any instructions of the crew including but not limited to those with respect to smoking, alcohol or drug consumption, or behaves in a manner which causes discomfort, inconvenience, damage or injury to other Passengers or the crew, we may take such measures as we deem reasonably necessary to prevent continuation of such conduct, including restraint. You may be disembarked and refused onward carriage at any point, and may be prosecuted for offences committed on board the aircraft.

If we are required to pay any fines or penalties or to incur any expenditures by reason of your failure to comply with the laws or regulations on entry to or travel through the country concerned, or to produce the required documents in the proper form, you shall be obligated to reimburse us on demand any amounts so paid and expenditures so incurred as well as an administration fee. This obligation does not only apply to the Passenger, but also to the person who purchased the ticket. We are entitled to use towards such payments or expenditures the value of any unused part of your ticket or any of the funds in your possession. The value of the fine or penalty can vary from country to country and may greatly exceed the Fare paid.  Therefore, in your own interest, please ensure that you observe the entry regulations of the country to which you are travelling

14.1 General Provisions

 

14.1.1 The liability of Luxair and each Carrier involved in the Passenger’s journey will be determined by its own Conditions of Carriage.

14.1.2 Unless otherwise stated herein, international travel, as defined in the Convention, is subject to the liability rules of the Convention.

If the injured party has contributed to causing the damage which has arisen, the norms of the applicable law in terms of the exclusion or the reduction of the liability to pay damages with contributive fault of the injured party apply. 

14.1.4 We are liable only for damages that occur as part of our own flight services. To the extent that we issue Tickets for transport on flight services operated by other Carriers or take on Baggage to be transported on flight services by another Carrier, we are merely acting as an agent for this other Carrier. Nonetheless, you have the right to claim damages from the first or last Carrier in relation to Checked Baggage.

14.1.5 If the Carrier actually performing the flight is not the same as the contracting air Carrier, Passenger has the right to address a complaint or to make a claim for damage against either. If the name or code (Code Share) of a Carrier is indicated on the Ticket, that Carrier is the contracting Carrier.

14.1.6
We are not liable for any Damage arising from our compliance with applicable laws or government rules and regulations, or from your failure to comply with the same.


14.1.7 Our liability shall not exceed the amount of proven direct Damage and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that we shall not be liable, in any way, for indirect, consequential, or any other form of non-compensatory Damage.

14.1.9 Any exclusion or limitation of liability of us shall apply to and be for the benefit of agents, servants and representatives of us and any person whose aircraft is used by us and such person’s agents, servants and representatives. The aggregate amount recoverable from us and from such agents, servants, representatives and persons shall not exceed the amount of our limit of liability. 

14.1.10 Unless so expressly provided, nothing herein contained shall waive any exclusion or limitation of Luxair liability under the Convention or applicable laws. 

 

14.2 Compensation in Case of Death or Injury

14.2.1 There are no financial limits to the liability for Passenger injury or death. For damages up to 113,100 SDRs Carrier cannot contest claims for compensation. Above the amount, the Carrier can defend itself against a claim by proving that it, or its servants or agents were not negligent or otherwise at fault.

14.2.2 If a Passenger is killed or injured, the Carrier must make an advance payment to cover immediate economic needs, within 15 days from the identification of the person entitled to compensation. In the event of death, this advance payment shall not be less than 16,000 SDRs.

An advance payment shall not constitute recognition of liability and may be offset against any subsequent sums paid on the basis of our liability, but is not returnable, except:

 

  1. In cases where we prove that the damage was caused by, or contributed to by the negligence of the injured or deceased Passenger, or

(b) In circumstances where it is subsequently proved that the person who received the advance payment caused, or contributed to the damage by negligence or was not the person entitled to compensation.


14.3 Destruction, Loss or Damage to Baggage

14.3.1
In accordance with article 17 of the Montreal Convention, the Carrier is liable for damage caused by loss of, or damage to Checked Baggage, upon condition only that the event which caused the loss or damage took place on board the aircraft or during any period in which the Carrier had custody of the Checked Baggage.

 

The Carrier shall not be liable for damage to Baggage where said damage results from the nature of or an inherent defect, quality or vice of the Baggage. If Baggage or items contained therein cause damage to another person or the Carrier, the Passenger must compensate the Carrier for all losses suffered and costs incurred as a result.

 

The Carrier’s liability in the event of destruction or loss of or damage to Baggage shall be limited to 1,131 SDR per Passenger. If a higher value was declared in accordance with Article 14.3.2 the Carrier’s liability shall be limited to the value declared, unless the Carrier can provide proof that said value is higher than the Passenger’s genuine interest at the time of delivery.

 

For Unchecked Baggage allowed on board, the Carrier can only be held liable in the event of a proven fault by the Carrier, its servants or agents.


14.3.2 A Passenger can benefit from a higher liability limit by making a special declaration at the latest at check-in and by paying a supplementary fee. 

14.3.3 If the Baggage is damaged, lost or destroyed the Passenger must file as soon as possible a written complain to Luxair. In case of damage to Checked Baggage, the Passenger must write and complain within 7 days, and in case of delay within 21 days, in both cases from the date on which the Baggage was placed at the Passenger’s disposal.

14.3.4 Luxair is not liable for damage to a Passenger’s Baggage caused by property contained in Passenger’s Baggage unless Luxair caused such damage by its gross negligence or wilful misconduct.

 

14.4 Passenger and Baggage Delays

14.4.1 In case of Passenger delay Luxair is liable for Damage unless Luxair took all reasonable measures to avoid damage or it was impossible to take such measures. Besides compensation for delays provided for in (EC) Regulation No 261/2004, the amount of compensation depends on the Damage proved by the Passenger within the limit fixed at 4,694 SDR by the Montreal Convention.

14.4.2 In case of a Baggage delay Luxair is liable for damage unless Luxair took all reasonable measures to avoid the damage or it was impossible to take such measures. The liability is limited to 1,131 SDRs.

 

14.4.3 If the injured party has contributed to causing the damage which has arisen, the amount of the compensation claim is reduced in proportion with the contributory negligence of said party. In particular, the injured party is under obligation not to increase the compensation amount caused by the loss or delayed carriage of his/her Baggage through unreasonable replacement purchases.

14.5 Non-Carriage due to Overbooking

14.5.1 In case of denied boarding due to overbooking Luxair will act in accordance with Regulation (EC) 261/2004. Information can be provided on demand or can be found on our website.

14.5.2 When assigning the seats available on an overbooked flight, we will give priority to unaccompanied children, ill and disabled people.

14.5.3
If it is foreseeable that some Passengers will have to be refused the right to travel, we will attempt in advance to find Passengers who agree to volunteer not to travel on this occasion.

 

Article 15: Time Limitations for Claims and Actions

 

15.1 Notice of claims

 

Acceptance of Baggage by the bearer of the Baggage Check without complaint is sufficient evidence that the Baggage has been delivered in good condition and in accordance with the Contract of Carriage, unless you prove otherwise.
