Ground and Network Efficiency Drivers in African Airlines: A Two-Stage Network DEA Approach

Carlos Barros and Peter Wanke

A chapter in Airline Efficiency, 2016, vol. 5, pp 73-102 from Emerald Publishing Ltd

Abstract: Abstract This chapter analyses the efficiency of African airlines using a two-stage network DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) model. Network DEA models usually take into account the production process with intermediate inputs derived from the first stage and a second stage that departs from it. This fundamental feature enables one to view the airline production process as a carry-over activity. The analysis covers the 2010–2013 period. The relative efficiency ranks are presented and policy implications are derived.
