DOES AIRPORT REGULATION BENEFIT CONSUMERS?
One goal of airport regulation is to impose price caps or other schemes on services supplied by airports to airlines that use them. However, it is not clear that regulation ultimately benefits the passengers. In the context of a very simple model, this paper finds out that this doesn't always happen, and that passengers may be worse off with price capping than in an unregulated equilibrium. In addition, the paper provides insights into the results of other regulation approaches that have been suggested for airports.
