According to the Iranian law, the International Conventions should be passed by
Iranian Parliament (Majlis) and then confirmed by the Guardian Council to ensure that they are constitutional and in conformity with Islamic rules. The Montreal Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air is a significant advance over the Warsaw system. In this article, we discuss whether the new changes made in Montreal Convention are in compliance with the Iranian laws as well as Islamic regulations. Some important issues for developing countries are introduced with a view to determine the legal aspects for Iran to ratify the Montreal Convention. By examining the Warsaw Convention, that Iran has been acceded to, and the Montreal Convention, we conclude that the new issues of the Montreal Convention are in compliance with Iranian and Islamic rules and regulations.
