In Chile, domestic aviation law is governed by the Aeronautical Code. However, Chile is also a signatory party to the Warsaw Convention 1929, as modified by the Hague Protocol 1955. Therefore, depending on the starting point, destination and stopping points of any flight, either regime can apply.
The Chilean legal system has established a strict liability system regarding aviation law. The law also establishes the limitation of this liability. Here the factors of imputability begin to play a fundamental role as, in order to exceed this limit, Chilean aviation law requires that the carrier must have acted with "intent or negligence".
Chilean aviation law is contained in acts, international conventions and regulations. Two of these instruments deal specifically with air carrier liability: the Chilean Aeronautical Code and the Warsaw Convention, as amended by the Hague Protocol 1955 and the Montreal Protocols 1, 2 and 3.
