Our primary results indicate that incumbents in the airline industry do respond to the threat of entry. Incumbents drop average fares substantially when Southwest threatens a route (before Southwest actually starts flying the route). This is true even when we compare the ~syverson/

Morrison () found that in the low-cost carrier Southwest airlines was responsible for $ billion in consumer savings, approximately 20 percent of the industry’s domestic scheduled passenger In addition, deregulation has led to lower average real fares, although various barriers to entry still allow carriers to keep prices above competitive levels. Environmental effects have thus far not received much attention in the discussion on deregulation. The paper contains a discussion of various types of environmental effects of ?doi=

GAO discussed the effects on airline fares of airline market concentration and barriers to new airline entry in airports. GAO noted that: (1) fares per passenger-mile at concentrated airports were about 20 percent higher than those at unconcentrated airports; (2) the combination of such barriers as exclusive-use leases, larger airlines' frequent flyer plans and computerized reservation systems   barriers to entry on airline fares, and (3) discuss the implications of our findings for policymaking.

More precisely, in the symmetric duopoly, there is an average FSC fare decrease of about €32 for economy classes (with respect to the monopoly case), while in the asymmetric duopoly, the impact is about triple (on average €91).

But with the deregulation of the airline industry that swept across the world afterentry barriers were lowered allowing new start-up of many airline companies, thus engendering competition in the airlines industry. This has led to competitions in various fronts, especially in Low Barriers to Entry and High Barriers to Exit.

The GAO attributes the instability of the airline industry partially to the low barriers to entry. 4 Since the barriers were lowered after deregulation, there have been many start-ups.

The lower entry barriers have produced significant competition that drives down ://  Government Accountability Office, Effects of Airline Entry Barriers on Fares, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC, Theses and dissertations Theses including Ph.D.
