Triple Seven MSN 27251 Ltd and another company v Azman Air Services Ltd

Mistake – Mistake of fact. The claimant companies' claim succeeded, and the lease agreements by which the claimants had leased two aeroplanes to the defendant company were not void for common mistake. The Commercial Court held that the mere fact that the parties had been induced by their shared mistaken assumption to enter into the lease agreements, while necessary to render the contract void for common mistake, was not, on its own, sufficient to render the contract void.
