Impacts of competition on connecting travelers: Evidence from the transatlantic aviation market

Transport Policy, 2020, vol. 96, issue C, 141-151
This paper examines the effects of competition driven by low-cost airlines and high-speed trains on long-haul connecting routings. We use passenger and fare data for 2010–2017 on transatlantic routings with a stopover in large European hub airports. Competition from low-cost airlines on the short segments of transatlantic routings reduces the number of connecting passengers channeled by hubbing airlines, who have to pay higher fares. In contrast, high-speed rail services are not found to lead to a reduction in the number of connecting passengers or to an increase in the price they have to pay.
