EMERGING PATTERNS IN INTERCONTINENTAL AIR LINKAGES AND IMPLICATIONS FOR INTERNATIONAL ROUTE ALLOCATION POLICY

In this article, the authors examine alternative policies for international route allocation given a domestic airline industry structure. They pay particular attention to the effect on international route allocation policy of the existing industry structure (the number and sizes of the major national carriers), and to the country's geographic location relative to the major continental aviation market, with examples. The first section reviews the important features of the imminent globalization of airline networks, and describes the emerging patterns of intercontinental linkages being adopted by some major carriers in the U.S. and Europe. Later in the article, alternative route allocation policies are defined, and the policies being followed by the U.S., Japan, Canada, and Korea are analyzed.
