The book addresses the legal and regulatory problems that have stultified and continue to adversely affect the progress of air transport. In the first chapter of this book the author discusses the anomalies in the regulatory structure of air transport with particular emphasis on the Chicago Convention and some issues that may have caused the problem. In the Second Chapter, is a discussion on discuss the three obstacles preventing FDI in air transport and examine the need for encouraging FDI in the industry. It also address the legal safeguards that would be available to foreign investors in the instance of such liberalization and conclude that the international community should take a serious look at this anomaly from a consumer-protection perspective. Another grave lacuna in the current air transport scenario is the lack of attention paid to the carriage by air of cargo. The Third Chapter covers this aspect. A further troubling issue in air transport is the lack of global principles on aircraft engine emissions.
