Intercontinental Flights From European Airports: Towards Hub Concentration or Not?

This paper empirically analyzes changes in the supply of non-stop intercontinental flights from European airports. The research takes advantage of OAG data for air services from a rich sample of European airports to intercontinental destinations in the period 2004-2008. The data indicates 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.
