Network development of low-cost carriers in China’s domestic market

Network development of low-cost carriers in China’s domestic market

This paper examines China’s LCC market and assesses the network development patterns from a geographical perspective. Overall, a nationwide LCC network has been formed with each individual LCC focusing on their own markets with limited overlap to avoid cut-throat competition....

A three-stage competition game in an air transport network under asymmetric valuation of flight frequencies

A three-stage competition game in an air transport network under asymmetric valuation of flight frequencies

This paper analyzes the effects of changes in aeronautical charges as brought by several airport management regimes on the air transport industry. Airlines compete on both price and non-prices variables, where connecting passengers have asymmetric valuations o...

Airline capacity decisions under supply-demand equilibrium of Australia’s domestic aviation market

Airline capacity decisions under supply-demand equilibrium of Australia’s domestic aviation market

Australia is especially reliant on air transportation because of the geographical distribution of the urban centers across the country. This paper seeks to identify the antecedents of the capacity decisions of the airlines operating in Australian domestic avia...
