accelerated depreciation rates

Accelerated depreciation rates needed to help level playing field for Australian aviation

The Australian and International Pilots Association has called once again for depreciation rates on new aircraft to be accelerated to bring Australia into line with jurisdictions in which foreign competitor airlines operate.

“Qantas pilots have been pushing for accelerated depreciation rates as part of a package of measures to redress the imbalance in the international airline investment environment for two years,” AIPA President Captain Barry Jackson said.
