This title was first published in 2001. By giving long over-due detailed consideration to airline deregulation in countries other than the US, Dipendra Sinha makes a unique contribution to the literature on airline deregulation and transport economics.


’The literature review in all regions, especially the United States, is first class and is recommended for anyone interested in airline deregulation.’ Journal of Transport Geography 'This book presents a world-wide overview of deregulation in the airline industry, starting with Asian countries, Australia and New Zealand and then proceeding to discuss regulation and liberalization in Canada, Europe, and finally in the USA - the home of airline deregulation. The book is extremely useful and informative, as it provides in a single volume the description of the multiplicity of problems and constraints that have been witnessed in airline liberalization in different countries and various actions taken to overcome them.' Transport Reviews '…the book presents an understanding of the process of deregulation in different parts of the world. The book is an interesting reading for those interested in the economics of transportation.' Journal of Services Research
