In addition, some airports change owners relatively frequently. In contrast, the majority of ANSPs, for reasons of national security and defence, remain wholly or majority-owned by the state. • Despite several decades of market deregulation and liberalisation, air transport essentially remains an oligopolistic market that is dominated by a small number of (often historically dominant) airlines and airline alliances (➤Chapters 7 and 9). In August 2015, the three leading global airline alliances – oneworld, SkyTeam and Star Alliance – accounted for 54 per cent of all airline seats worldwide (Capstats 2015).

Similarly, the liabilities of the carriers would vary enormously. The Warsaw Convention 1929 represented the first uniform international effort to implement universal laws relating to international air carriage, especially in respect of carriers’ liability. The implementation of internationally accepted limits on a carrier’s liability for death, injury or damage was also a driving force which ultimately led to the Warsaw Convention of 1929. At that time airlines were predominantly state-owned and particularly supportive of the introduction of known limits on liability.

Today, the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago Convention 1944), which updated and replaced the Paris Convention 1919, has been ratified by more than 190 sovereign states. These countries have agreed, under international air law, to be bound by the technical and operational standards developed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and which are detailed in the 19 Annexes. The essence of aviation is travel. With rapid advancements in aircraft design and technology, largely attributable to the two World Wars, aircraft are now able to fly faster, higher and further than ever before.
