The world is dependent on the aviation industry, not only for tourism but for the transportation of goods. According to the Air Transport Action Group, “If aviation were a country it would rank 21st in the world in terms of gross domestic product (GDP), generating $664 Billion of GDP per year, considerably larger than some members of the G20.” What’s more, it is forecasted that aviation will contribute $1 trillion to world GDP by 2026. In an industry of this nature and magnitude, there can very often be a need to quantify damages due to instances of fraud, business interruption, the occurrence of natural or man-made disasters, not to mention shareholder and contractual disputes.
