CORRELATIONS BETWEEN SHORT-HAUL AIR TRANSPORT AND HIGH-SPEED RAILROAD SYSTEM IN JAPAN

Shinkansen, a high-speed rail line between Tokyo and Osaka, is regarded as a success from the viewpoints of both its earnings performance and national as well as public interests. It has however, caused dislocations in air transportation. Air carriers who were operating flights over sectors of not longer than 300 miles were forced to suspend service, and even those who were operating service over sectors of 300 miles or longer experienced more or less a decline in the number of passengers. On the other hand, it was proved that air service over routes of at least 300 miles long could coexist with Shinkansen, maintaining constantly a market share of 10% without suffering fatal damage.
