No need to regulate airports with predominantly non-aeronautical revenues

Kratzsch U, Sieg G


Zusammenfassung
This paper analyzes a profit-maximizing private airport with market power in providing aeronautical services. Our model implies that airports with ample capacity may voluntarily abstain from abusing their market power if non-aeronautical revenues are airports’ main source of income. In this case, a price regulation that is confined to the aviation business will be unnecessary from a welfare point of view.
