RonanAir regulations on specific subjects
Air carrier liability for passengers and their baggage
This information notice summarizes the liability rules applied by Community air carriers as required by Community legislation and the Montreal Convention 1999.
Compensation in the case of death or injury
There are no financial limits to the liability for passenger injury or death. For damages up to 113,100 Special Drawing Rights ("SDRs") the air carrier cannot contest claims for compensation. Above that amount, the air carrier can defend itself against a claim by proving that it was not negligent or otherwise at fault.
If a passenger is killed or injured, the air carrier must make an advance payment, to cover immediate economic needs, within 15 days from the identification of the person entitled to compensation. In the event of death, this advance payment shall not be less than 16,000 SDRs.
In the case of passenger delay, the air carrier is liable for damage unless it took all reasonable measures to avoid the damage or it was impossible to take such measures. The liability for passenger delay is limited to 4,694 SDRs.
In the case of baggage delay, the air carrier is liable for damage unless it took all reasonable measures to avoid the damage or it was impossible to take such measures. The liability for baggage delay is limited to 1,131 SDRs.
Delay, Loss or Damage to Baggage
The air carrier is liable for destruction, loss or damage to baggage up to 1,131 SDRs. In the case of checked baggage, it is liable even if not at fault, unless the baggage was defective. In the case of unchecked baggage, the carrier is liable only if at fault.
Claim Time Limits for Delayed, Lost or Damaged Baggage
The reporting of damage/misplaced baggage at your arrival airport does not represent a claim to RonanAir and therefore it is necessary to also make a claim directly (Claim form), within the time limits set by the Montreal Convention 1999.
Damaged Baggage – must be reported at your arrival airport and in addition a documented claim submitted to RonanAir within 7 days from the date of damage.
Misplaced Baggage – must be reported at your arrival airport and in addition a documented claim submitted to RonanAir within 21 days from the date on which the Baggage was placed at your disposal.
Higher Limits for Baggage
Under the Montreal Convention 1999, RonanAir’s liability for lost, damaged or delayed baggage is limited to 1131 SDR (approx. €1300). A passenger can benefit from a higher checked baggage liability by making a Special Checked Baggage Declaration of Value and paying a fee of €50/£50 or equivalent in local currency (plus VAT for domestic flights), per person/per one way flight. The payment of this fee raises the checked baggage liability limit to 2,262 Special Drawing Rights (approx. €2600). Each Checked Baggage Special Declaration of Value Fee must be paid for at the airport of departure. RonanAir Declaration value form link
Liability of Contracting and Actual Carriers
If the air carrier actually performing the flight is not the same as the contracting air carrier, the passenger has the right to address a complaint or to make a claim for damages against either. If the name or code of an air carrier is indicated on the ticket, that air carrier is the contracting air carrier.
Time Limitation for Action
Any action in court to claim damages must be brought within two years from the date of arrival of the aircraft, or from the date on which the aircraft ought to have arrived.
Basis for the above information
The basis of the rules described above in the Montreal Convention of 28 May 1999, which is implemented in the Community by Regulation (EC) No.2027/97 (as amended by Regulation (EC) No.889/2002) and the national legislation of the Member states.

Italian minors under 14 years travelling with the new style ID Card “Carta d‘identità” with one or both parents can travel on EU/Schengen flights with no additional documentation required. If travelling with neither parent with the new style ID card they should be in possession of an „Affido“.
Italian minors under 14 years travelling with only one parent OR Guardian must be in receipt of an 'Affido' which must be signed by the parent who is not travelling.
Portuguese routes: Portuguese nationals and alien residents under 18 years leaving or re-entering Portugal, to or from a non-Schengen member state unaccompanied by their father, mother or legal guardian need a travel authorisation. This must be signed by both parents or legal guardian with the signature notarised if the parents or legal guardian reside in Portugal; or authenticated by a Portuguese embassy or consulate in the country where the parents or legal guardian reside. This travel authorisation is also required when minors are accompanied by a person other than their father, mother or legal guardian. In such cases the travel authorisation must also clearly show the name of the accompanying person. Foreign minors under 18 years and traveling alone may be refused entry if they do not have anyone in Portugal taking responsibility for their stay.
