These Airline Disclosure Guides (ADGs) were compiled by the IATA Industry and KPMG.

These Airline Disclosure Guides (ADGs) have been compiled by the IATA Industry Accounting Working Group (IAWG), in association with KPMG. This working group’s mandate is to promote consistency in the application of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and to lobby accounting standard setters to take into consideration the interests of airlines globally.

The ADGs cover the latest accounting practices, principally from airlines reporting under IFRS related frameworks, to highlight key issues, judgements and disclosures made by airlines. They are designed to help in the development and analysis of airlines annual reports. The sample for the disclosures used in the ADGs comes mainly from annual reports of members of the IAWG and of IATA’s Financial Committee.

The ADGs are not intended as critical assessments of specific disclosures or accounting policies nor as a guide of best practice. Furthermore, they do not provide accounting advice or detailed analysis of the underlying standards, including relevant disclosure requirements, and they should not be used as a substitute for referring to the standards and interpretations of IFRS.
