Description:This project aims to evaluate the economic effects of competition policy in international air transport. To this end, it estimates the effect of competition policy and some of its components on the market structure of the airline industry such as ownership structure (private vs. government), number of operators, and on total factor productivity (TFP) growth. The paper will also make a normative analysis of the pros and cons of harmonizing competition policy between countries in the sphere of international air transport.
