Impact of Deregulation

  • George Williams ULHT


Pre-Deregulation in the US
- Carriers were not able to compete in terms of price

- Service quality and frequency were the main means
by which they competed

- Load factors were low and unit costs high as a result

- A study by Jordan (Airline Regulation in America,
1970) of inter-state trunk airline fares in 1965 showed
that if there had been no regulation these would have
been 32 –47% lower
