Factors affecting the development of hub airport clusters: focusing on the roles of low-cost carriers in the Asia-Pacific region

This paper investigates the impact of policy measures for the development of hub airport clusters on the efficiency of airports, especially focusing the role of low-cost carriers (LCCs) in the Asia-Pacific region. The policy measures evaluated in this paper are the market share of LCCs and long-distance haul, transit ratio, and landing fee, which have been adopted in most airports by the governments in the region. The results based on an unbalanced panel data set from 11 airports (groups) for the 2001–2013 period show that LCCs contribute to the operational efficiency of airports but not to their financial efficiency and that policy measures have not worked well as intended, except for reducing landing fees.
