Stevenson, Wong & Co. published article on aviation Law

Stevenson, Wong & Co. team published an article on The Aviation Law Review

The Hong Kong Chapter in The Aviation Law Review (Second Edition), which was published in July 2014, is co-authored by SW’s experienced aviation law practitioners, Mr. Neville Watkins, partner and Mr. Simon Tong, assistant solicitor.

Hong Kong is one of the most important regional aviation hubs for Asia and boasts one of the busiest airports in the world. The Chapter provides a summary of aviation law in Hong Kong, which includes the regulatory framework, licensing of operations and aviation liabilities.

The Chapter explores the major legislations governing aviation activities in Hong Kong, such as the Civil Aviation Ordinance (Cap. 448), Aviation Security Ordinance (Cap.494) and the Airport Authority Ordinance (Cap.483). It also provides a background of the newly passed Trade Description Ordinance (Cap.362) and the Competition Ordinance (Cap.619) which impact on the manner of provision of services to consumers and restrict anti-competitive conduct in the aviation field respectively.

The Chapter also sets out how international conventions are implemented in Hong Kong to enforce carriers’ liability for death and injury of passengers which enhances consumer protection.
