Part A: How Do Airports Compete and How Strong is Competition? This page has been left blank intentionally Chapter 2 Airport Competition and Network Access: A European Perspective Dr Peter Morrell Introduction As airports change from public services provided by central government to privately owned or commercialised entities there is a growing need to protect against possible monopolistic behaviour. This raises the question as to whether airports are indeed monopolies and need economic regulation.

Air services will always be ‘consumed’ in conjunction with one or more sectors provided by other transport modes: • • • • air to car/taxi/truck and vice versa; air to bus/rail and vice versa; air to air and vice versa; surface to surface also possible. Competition should be considered in terms of door-to-door service, time and price, rather than just on an airport to airport basis. What distinguishes London Heathrow Airport from Stansted Airport is the large number of destinations served non-stop: many of these are long-haul and of relatively high frequency.

According to Gillen and Niemeier (2006) privatization on the European Continent has not changed the nature of the industry as it has in the UK, but it has led airports to become more profitoriented. The typical private airport in Europe is a partially privatized airport that tries to pursue a wide range of objectives, in addition to profits, such as regional development, job creation and tourism growth. This pattern of ownership certainly has implications for entry and exit as it influences motivation and behaviour.
