This title was first published in 2001. This is a study of liberalization in the aviation industry, especially bilateral agreements. It looks at intra-country impacts of air service agreements, and quantifies the impact on the northern German region. The authors assess the potential impact of air transport liberalization for the German economy and travelers and how its outcomes would impact Hamburg Airport and the Hamburg economy. The study focuses on: a comprehensive review of institutional and regulatory environment affecting international air travel; the economic implications of changing the rules governing international travel; and the policy and airport strategy considerations that arise because of these changes.
