More Information
Air Transport Networks provides an economic analysis of the way in which the air transport industry operates and the nature of the policies that have been adopted to regulate the sector.

The book covers domestic and international air transportation with an emphasis on airlines and includes discussions of related markets such as airports and air traffic control. The authors provide details of how the sector functions and the reasons why the airline industry performs as it does today and explore the ways in which governments have, over the years, attempted to manipulate air transport markets to meet political objectives.

This volume will be warmly received by those interested in the operations and the influences that public policy has on the air transport sector. Air Transport Networks will also appeal to policymakers and to those working in the air transportation sector.
Critical Acclaim
‘Air Transport Networks is among the first and most comprehensive attempts to develop the differences and special characteristics of aviation systems. . . Overall, Button and Stough have produced a well-written, informative, and detailed book that summarizes recent developments in international civil aviation. The book does a commendable job of describing the development and performance of airline networks to date.’
– John Strong, Journal of the Transportation Research Forum

‘Air Transport Networks provides an overall synthesis of air transportation networks by looking at passenger and cargo aspects of the industry as well as airports. . . Air Transport Networks is well written with a very specific focus on the economics and public policy in air transportation. The bibliography is detailed and provides an excellent reference for those who want to examine further the topics discussed in the book. This text would make a worthy addition to the graduate level courses dealing with public policy in the air transportation or transportation in general.’
– T.M. Vowles, Journal of Transport Geography
