Aviation Matters

Aviation industry of Bangladesh is rapidly growing ever-since Govt. allowed private companies to operate airline business. Although few companies tried to operate airline business, only few are able to succeed in the very competitive market. The demand for legal services in aviation matters is increasing due to increase of volume of transaction in recent years.

Airlines, machinery and equipment suppliers, service providers, passengers often look for legal services. For example, cargo related claim, baggage claim, recovery of dues, recovery of machinery and equipment, crew’s salary and benefits etc. are now not very uncommon for lawyers in Bangladesh. Our aviation practice begun with filing recovery litigation for service related dues for a five star hotel against GMG Airlines in 2008, which is no more in operation now. Later our Consultancy and Documentation Team, High Court and District Court Team handled few aviation  matters on different issues. Over the years, we have developed reasonable expertise in aviation matters.
