In the event of death, this advance payment must not be less than 16,000 SDRs (the equivalent of approx. 19,702.44 EUR). This advance payment may neither be interpreted as an acknowledgment of liability on our part nor offset against later payments.

16.1 Written notification of damage, loss or delay to luggage

It is assumed that the baggage will be returned to the holder in an undamaged, timely and appropriate manner at the time at which the person who received the baggage tag attached to the ticket at check-in unconditionally accepts the baggage.
In the event of damage, delay, loss or destruction of baggage, passengers must report their damage to the lost-and-found point at the destination airport or in writing to the airline company as soon as the damage is discovered. In the event of damage to checked baggage, the passenger must report the damage to the airline's customer service department within 7 days and in the event of a delay within 21 days, in both cases from the date on which the baggage was made available to the passenger.

16.2 Legal Action

Claims for damages must be brought within two years from the date of arrival of the aircraft or from the date on which the aircraft was supposed to arrive, otherwise the passenger loses his right to compensation. The calculation of this period is based on the law of the country in which the lawsuit is pending or is being filed.
