INTERCONTINENTAL FLIGHTS FROM EUROPEAN AIRPORTS: TOWARDS HUB CONCENTRATION OR NOT?

Germà Bel () and Xavier Fageda

Articles, 2010, vol. 37, issue 2

Abstract: Supply of direct intercontinental flights is a major determinant of the position an urban area enjoys in the global city network. This paper empirically analyzes changes in the supply of non-stop intercontinental flights from European airports. We take advantage of OAG data for air services from a rich sample of European airports to intercontinental destinations in the period 2004- 2008. Data indicate a tendency towards a more balanced distribution of intercontinental flights across European airports. Results of the empirical analysis show that the largest hubs have lost market share in the considered period, after controlling for several attributes of the region, congestion and number of nearby airports.
