Keystone’s Aviation offering encompasses a detailed knowledge and understanding of the aviation industry derived from its members’ long experience of acting for a myriad of aviation businesses. These include airlines, airports, ground handlers, MROs, aircraft and engine manufacturers, leasing companies, banks and financiers, aviation insurers and brokers, tour operators, travel agents and trade associations. Some members of the team have gained practical experience from working directly in areas such as aviation underwriting or as in-house counsel. As a result, the team has a real insiders’ understanding of the industry’s challenges around the world, including those arising from how it is regulated.

Having advised many major international airlines around the world, airports, governments and aviation regulators and industry bodies such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Federation of General Sales Agents (FEDAGSA), the team can offer not only expertise but also significant experience in all the areas of aviation legal practice: aviation liabilities, air transport regulation and fleet procurement, and aviation finance, as well as all relevant areas of commercial, corporate and competition law.

In addition, the team supports UKTI-backed aerospace ‘start-ups’ relocating to the UK from overseas and has developed a niche practice in acting for service providers to the aviation industry, including commercial aircraft spares companies and aviation consultancy businesses involved in both the ‘start up’ and restructuring of airlines.
