This book explores the impact of deregulation policies on key areas of the airline industry, analyzes the response of incumbent carriers to economic freedom and examines whether or not it is possible to devise a pro-competitive regulatory strategy for this sector. The author provides the reader with a clear explanation as to: [ why airline deregulation policies have produced a number of unanticipated outcomes; [ why low-cost new entrants have been unable to survive under deregulation; [ why the impact of airline deregulation has differed between the USA and Western Europe.

Airline Competition: Deregulation's Mixed Legacy.

The lessons gleaned from the US experience, including effective ways of constraining rivals, have quickly been adopted by carriers facing the opening up to competition of their own local markets.

The passage of the 1978 Airline Deregulation Act launched a new era in the air transport industry. The Airline Industry and the Impact of Deregulation. Brookfield, Vermont: Ashgate Publishing, 1994. 2 After decades of regulation-induced inertia, the number of . airline firms tripled in just a few years. The new entrants competed aggressively with the incumbent airlines, offering lower fares, new routes, and low-cost no frills flights.

Deregulation of the airline industry eliminated barriers to compete for US markets, resulting in a surge of air .

Deregulation of the airline industry eliminated barriers to compete for US markets, resulting in a surge of air service entrants and new consumers, as well as the creation of a new regulatory template that would expand air service, worldwide. Turning to the impact of the relationship between the acquirer and the target, Lichtenberg and Kim (1989) find that horizontal mergers severely depress the wages of airline workers in contrast to the predictions of the Horn and Wolinsky model. Peoples (1990) however shows that despite these wage cuts airline workers still received wages comparable to those in other highly unionised industries.

The analysis starts with a look back to the era oftight economic regulation of this sector. The traditional regulatory framework consisted mainly of a system of restricted route entry, coupled with a rate-of return price regula-tion. The carriers' actions had therefore been limited to the field of service competition, this resulted in low load factors and poor financial performance of the carriers.

The advantages of airline competition to consumers are clearly apparent .

Airline deregulation is a failure, conclude Professors Dempsey and Goetz. Only now is the full impact of deregulation being felt. They assault the conventional wisdom in this provocative book, finding that the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978, championed by a profound political movement which also advocated the deregulation of the bus, trucking, rail, and pipeline industries, failed to achieve the promises of its proponents.

Airline deregulation had begun with initiatives by economist Alfred E. Kahn . The Impact of Deregulation on the Employment and Wages of Airline Mechanics. Kahn in the Nixon administration, carried through the Ford administration and finally, at the behest of Ted Kennedy, signed into law by President Jimmy Carter. Globally, state supported airlines are still relatively common, maintaining control over ticket prices and route entry, but many countries have since deregulated their own domestic airline markets. In the wake of deregulation, airlines have adopted new strategies and consumers are experiencing a new market.

In the fast-changing theatre of air transportation, the strategic development of airlines and the operating economics of scheduled airline services have been transformed, following the profound impact of US deregulation. The lessons gleaned from the US experience, including effective ways of constraining rivals, have quickly been adopted by carriers facing the opening up to competition of their own local markets. In addition, in response to the hunt by the successful US survivors for further international traffic, carriers have been forced to emulate certain tactics adopted by these megacarriers, virtually irrespective of their own government’s regulatory stance. The economics of the sector, particularly with regard to revenue generation, has resulted in increased market concentration. In the longer term, prospects for competition remain unclear, given the likely existence of only a small number of similarly endowed, globally alligned megacarriers. This book explores the impact of deregulation policies on key areas of the airline industry, analyzes the response of incumbent carriers to economic freedom and examines whether or not it is possible to devise a pro-competitive regulatory strategy for this sector. The author provides the reader with a clear explanation as to: ¢ why airline deregulation policies have produced a number of unanticipated outcomes; ¢ why low-cost new entrants have been unable to survive under deregulation; ¢ why the impact of airline deregulation has differed between the USA and Western Europe. Using this analysis as a basis, he explores the future development of the sector, indicating the likely future trends towards globalization. He also argues that a competitive marketplace is not a guaranteed outcome of full deregulation and suggests an alternative approach. The book is of special interest to those members engaged in the airline industry, regulatory authorities and government departments of transport and industry. It wil
