Increasing Restrictions on Import of Aging Aircraft to Bolster Growth

Aircraft aging includes three major aspects, namely, safety, maintenance, and fatigue of the aircraft. The rate at which an individual aircraft ages is highly dependent on several factors, such as replacement of components and aircraft fleet. The Indonesian Ministry of Transportation (MOT) declared a complete ban in 2016 on the import of commercial passenger aircraft that are ten years old and above. Such restrictions would augment the commercial aircraft disassembly, dismantling, and recycling market growth as more traditional aircraft would be used for recycling.
