Up, Up and Away: Irish Commercial Court Orders Removal of Registrations relating to Aircraft

Executive Summary

The Irish High Court currently has exclusive jurisdiction to make orders against the Registrar (as defined below) pursuant to the Convention and the Protocol (both as defined below).

The judgment of Mr Justice McDonald sets out the reasoning for the granting of orders which he had made two weeks previously.
