This new study takes a keen look at the problems facing the international community due to conflicts arising from applications of varying competition laws by different competition authorities to international airline alliances. As a result of privatisation, deregulation, liberalisation and globalisation, international air carriers form alliances with one another in order to cope with growing competition in the international air transport market. This book clearly provides an introduction to the background to and origin of airline alliances, different models of alliances and the related anti-competitive practices resulting from existing international airline alliances. The potential anti-competitive practices resulting from these cross-border alliances trigger a great deal of concern from various competition authorities. Thus, this study goes on to provide a detailed analysis regarding the relevant EC competition law and US antitrust law and their applications to alliance activities. The comparison of different applications of EC competition law and US antitrust law to international airline alliances provides leading research results first-hand. In the conclusion, the essential elements regarding establishing a level playing field in the international air transport market are identified and the author provides possible solutions for the harmonisation of different applications of competition law to international airline alliances.

Between 1987 and 1993, the number of passengers traveling on U.S. airlines between the U.S. and foreign destinations increased 47%, while domestic traffic increased by only 6%. The airlines have entered into alliances with foreign airlines rather than starting new service to additional foreign cities. This report examines the effects of marketing alliances between U.S. and foreign airlines on airlines' traffic flows and revenues and on consumers, and identifies the key issues concerning such alliances that need to be addressed by the Dept. of Transportation.
These results suggest that airline alliances enable airlines to become more
competitive. The international aviation sector is confronted by a wide variety of
challenges resulting from the globalization of economic activities in general, and
This paper reviews recent trends in international strategic alliances, which have grown more than fivefold between 1989 and 1999 paralleling the increase in cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M & As). The paper covers frequency, type, purpose and geographical patterns of international alliances during the 1990s as an important aspect of industrial globalisation and analyses sectoral trends in industries such as telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, automobiles and airlines. While international alliances provide firms with strategic flexibility, enabling them to respond to changing market conditions, they can also be effective paths for achieving global scale in enterprise operations along with M & As and greenfield investment. Driving forces behind international strategic alliances include cost economising in production and R & D, strengthening market presence, and accessing intangible assets. The paper presents the recent and comprehensive data available on strategic alliances and ...
