Fare effects and dynamics of network structure in the air transport industry: empirical studies from the United States and Europe
Book - Dissertation
This dissertation investigates fare effects and dynamics of network structure in the air transport industry through case studies from the United States and Europe. Econometric models are established to examine factors influencing the pricing behavior of full-service carriers in hub-to-hub networks in the United States and Europe, taking into account route and market structure as potential explanatory factors. A stochastic actor-based modeling technique is applied to examine the main elements driving changes in the European air transport network between 2003 and 2009. Traffic changes at secondary airports in the European Union and United States are explored in the context of EU/US Open Skies agreement during 2005-2008.
