Phuket Plane Crash Claims Concerns


Travel law expert Andrew Morton from Manchester law firm Pannone LLP says Brits wishing to take legal action for relatives involved in the crash may find themselves in a legal minefield.

“The Far East is an area of the world where there are particular safety concerns over low cost airlines. Taking legal action can be complex and confusing and I would advise using a solicitor with specialist international travel law experience.”

A full investigation into the Phuket plane crash is still being conducted, but there are reports that the plane landed too quickly in heavy winds and monsoon rains. There was also a sudden change of wind force direction which could have thrown the plane off course.

Air traffic controllers say they warned the pilot but the pilot’s family dispute this and say he was told to land anyway. There is also evidence to suggest the equipment which detects extreme weather conditions at Phuket airport was faulty.

Pannone LLP has an emergency helpline which deals with all air crash disasters and travel related legal action queries. The line provides access to specialist travel law legal staff and solicitors.
