Established as a foundation under Dutch law in 2022, The Hague Court of Arbitration for Aviation operates on a non-profit basis and performs its essential duties for the benefit of the global aviation industry totally independently and impartially, with no allegiance to any industry participant or special interest group over another. Albeit a court in name, The Hague Court of Arbitration for Aviation is a private non-government initiative that serves the global aviation industry by providing and promoting specialised arbitration and mediation services customised for the specific dispute resolution requirements of industry participants. Neither the foundation nor its Board, Advisory Board or any Standing Committee have any direct role whatsoever in the administration of any arbitration or mediation proceeding. The Netherlands Arbitration Institute provides judicial supervision of all arbitration and mediation proceedings, and all such proceedings always emanate from the agreement of the parties thereto.
