AN ANALYSIS OF SHORT HAUL AIRLINE OPERATING COSTS

In an analysis of various aspects of short haul airline operating costs, consideration is given to total operating costs, ground handling operations costs, and direct and indirect operating costs. Total short haul costs and air fares are also examined. It is shown that no significant economies of scale exist in short haul systems, and that linear cost functions are suitable models of total operating costs. Direct operating costs are shown to be dependent on aircraft type and length of haul, and a model of fares, based on operating costs functions of short haul airlines, is considered appropriate for integration with demand models to estimate traffic volume. /HRIS/
