Air Waybill Law and Legal Definition

Air waybill is “the shipping document used for the transportation of air freight. It includes conditions, limitations of liability, shipping instructions, description of commodity, and applicable transportation charges. It is generally similar to a straight non- negotiable bill of lading and is used for similar purposes.” [15 CFR 30.1; Title 15 -- Commerce And Foreign Trade; Subtitle B -- Regulations Relating To Commerce And Foreign Trade; Chapter I -- Bureau Of The Census, Department Of Commerce; Part 30 -- Foreign Trade Regulations; Subpart A -- General Requirements]
