Article 55

Judgment of the Court; 14 July 1977; Bavaria Fluggesellschaft Schwabe & Co. Kg and Germanair Bedarfsluftfahrt GmbH & Co. Kg v Eurocontrol; in Joined cases 9 and 10-77

The first paragraph of Article 56 of the Convention on Jurisdiction and the Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters does not prevent a bilateral agreement such as the German-Belgian Convention, which is the fifth to be listed in Article 55, from continuing to have effect in relation to judgments which do not fall under the second paragraph of Article 1 of the Convention first abovementioned, but to which nevertheless that Convention does not apply.
