Abstract

Ebola Virus Disease (or “Ebola”, as commonly known) is a severe and often fatal viral illness in humans. The recent deadly outbreak started in Guinea in December 2013, and by March this year it had spread through West Africa in alarming proportions. On August 8th, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Ebola crisis an international public health emergency. There have been serious emergency response plans and action taken by the involved countries, in a desperate and concerted effort to contain the disease. In light of the above, airlines may be concerned about their potential exposure to claims, thus it is necessary to evaluate the real extent of their hypothetical liability.
