Greek Aviation Law

Aviation Law, as a part of Commercial Law, constitutes the establishment of special international public and private rules due to air transport problems and any related interest. It is distinguished into International Public and International Private Aviation Law directly or indirectly related to civil aviation.
Given that civil aviation in general, has an international character, a large part of Aviation Law is International Law or internationally uniform law that also characterizes the internal national regulations that were formed following international agreements.

The heart of International Aviation Law is the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which regulates international air transport. It is part of United Nations and was established in 1947 under the 1944 Chicago Convention of the Conference on International Civil Aviation. Its members are 191 countries and its headquarters are in Montreal, Canada. The most important tasks of the ICAO relate to areas such as the standardization and safety of aviation, the regulation of international aviation law, due to technological development or other reasons (e.g. air piracy), the development of the necessary infrastructure with joint support programs of the members for financing as well as technical assistance programs, the distribution and management of ICAO codes for airports, aircraft and airlines worldwide, the standardization of travel documents, in a globally uniform format, etc.
