HUB-AIRPORT COMPETITION: CONNECTING TIME DIFFERENTIATION AND CONCESSION CONSUMPTION *
MING HSIN LIN
This paper develops a network model to analyse the economic effects resulting from the non-price competition between the home country's and neighbouring country's hub-airports. Focusing on the trade-off relationship between the length of the connecting time in the hub-airport and the consumption opportunities of the transfer passengers, we demonstrate theoretically that even though the hub-airport bears a cost disadvantage over its rival in providing the hub-airport service, it still has a chance to earn more profits than its rival by the setting of the connecting time. This finding suggests a new methodology for hub-airports that attempt to alleviate price competition.
