Measuring Conduct and Cost Parameters in the Spanish Air Transport Market

Xavier Fageda

No 125, Working Papers in Economics from Universitat de Barcelona. Espai de Recerca en Economia

Abstract: This paper estimates a model of airline competition for the Spanish air transport market. I test the explanatory power of alternative oligopoly models with capacity constraints. In addition, I analyse the degree of density economies. Results show that Spanish airlines conduct follows a price-leadership scheme so that it is less competitive than the Cournot solution. I also find evidence that thin routes can be considered as natural monopolies.
