Transportation and Infrastructure

With a long history of representing clients in transportation matters, we advise clients at nearly every point in the supply and distribution chains and deal with the myriad issues that have emerged in the industry during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Holland & Knight's Aviation Team has a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory, operational and contractual issues surrounding service suspensions and alterations as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Our team has strong working relationships with the agencies overseeing the response to the coronavirus outbreak, including the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Transportation and Security Administration (TSA), and State Department, as well as the White House staff overseeing these issues. We are monitoring the policy and jurisdictional implications for the aviation sector. Additionally, our attorneys have close ties with the domestic and international trade associations coordinating industry response to the outbreak, including the International Air Transport Association and Airlines for America. Our team is currently assisting clients by advising on operational and security concerns, as well as contractual obligations and handling refund and supplier claims; examining possible carrier liability claims from passengers who may have been exposed while traveling; working to respond to newly imposed transport and travel restrictions; advising on the feasibility and logistics of operating relief/humanitarian flights; assisting clients with redeploying their assets away from areas affected by the outbreak; and evaluating fleet issues.
