Aviation and informal novation

The recent High Court decision in Gama Aviation (UK) Ltd v MWWMMWM Ltd  is a rare example of a claimant successfully relying on the principle of informal novation to bring a claim for breach of contract.

Also, the decision in this matter provides an unusual example of where the court has used the principles of contractual construction, and the doctrine of estoppel, to prevent a party (the Customer) from relying on an express term of the contract.

We have summarised the case, and decision, in our full article here.
