Article
Full-text available
Current public transport supply on the Island of Lanzarote is clearly insufficient, and opportunities to substitute private automobiles are extremely limited, for residents and tourists alike. Therefore, this paper analyzes the possibility of introducing a tourist bus service to connect Lanzarote’s main tourist attractions, and it also focuses on a...
Preprint
Subsidizing air mobility for Canary Island residents may have an unforeseen impact on regional air carrier route development and this could exacerbate congestion in airports that operate near to their maximum threshold. Reginal routes often require the use of small aircraft such as those from the ATR (Avions de Transport Régional) family. These air...
Article
This paper seeks to analyze the impact of regional aviation subsidies for Gran Canary airport; specifically, the effect on airport capacity, air carrier economics and the environment. It was found that aircraft taxiing operations time increased producing negative effects on airport capacity management, air carrier economies and the environment in t...
Article
Full-text available
The rapid growth in the air transport required satisfying the increased demand for tourism become a factor of unsustainability due to the substantial environmental impact that supports such a development. There is the need to establish an alternative to the traditional air transport pricing structure that reflects the true cost that air market oper...

Full-text available
The Canary Islands, which are located in the North Atlantic Ocean near Europe and Northern Africa, consist of seven volcanic islands and many islets, with a spring climate that prevails year round. Their vertiginous contrasting landscapes and gentle climates have created an ideal environment for a rich diversity of species and habitats. These envir...
Article
Airport infrastructure in many countries is being up-graded to meet the growing demands of tourism, and air travel more generally, but this poses problems for sustainable development. Thus, there is the need to establish an alternative to the traditional airport pricing structure for landing fees so as to reflect the true cost that air transports i...
Article
This paper contributes to the airport benchmarking literature in two ways. To our knowledge, this is the first attempt at using a stochastic distance function to measure airports’ productivity changes while considering multiple outputs. Secondly, we calculate the evolution and decomposition of the Total Factor Productivity (TFP) for Spanish airport...
Article
The long-term growth in the air transport is leading to the need to expand airport infrastructure but this has serious environmental implications. Thus, there is the need to establish an alternative to the traditional airport pricing structure for landing fees, which reflects the overall costs that air transport operators impose on others. Airport...
Article
Full-text available
This paper evaluates the influence of contracting out, or outsourcing, certain airport services and of commercial diversification strategy. Although most of the effort is being put towards applying non-parametric techniques in airport efficiency studies, we have chosen parametric methodology. We use a distance function, as it has known advantages....
Article
Full-text available
Este trabajo valora la eficiencia del sector privado en la provisión de servicios en los aeropuertos españoles. En primer lugar se revisa la evolución del modelo de gestión de aeropuertos a nivel internacional, destacándose aquellos aspectos que han tenido mayor impacto en los resultados económicos de la industria aeroportuaria. Posteriormente se d...
Article
Full-text available
This work analyses the level of service of Gran Canaria airport facilities as an approximation to evaluate the service quality given to tourism. Through a linear programming model we will determine the level of service established in a check-in service at this airport. The relevance of this parameter is related to the leisure time available for tou...
Article
Full-text available
This paper attempts to analyse the productive structure of airport industry through a "two step estimation method". The analysis was made using the neoclassical approach of dual cost function. A "translog" joint cost function was used. Its flexibility gave us the possibility of directly modelling the cost structure of airport industry without a pri...
Article
This paper analyses the integral management of solid waste from the viewpoint of the life cycle of the product. We discuss the different phases of the product's life cycle, establishing the conceptual framework that permits an improvement in management, from a social point of view. We also show a price model for the urban waste treatment service in...
Article
This paper attempts to analyse the productive structure in the airport industry. The analysis was made using the neoclassical approach of dual cost function. A translog joint cost function was used, as its flexibility gave us the possibility of directly modelling the cost structure without imposing arbitrary a priori restrictions on the structure o...
Article
Full-text available
Este trabajo pretende analizar la importancia del tr�fico internacional y el nivel de servicio establecido en la generaci�n de ingresos comerciales en los aeropuertos espa�oles. En primer lugar, mediante un modelo ad hoc de ingresos, se valora la influencia de las diferentes clases de tr�fico en la generaci�n de ingresos de la red de aeropuertos es...

Este trabajo pretende analizar la evolución de los ingresos aeroportuarios españoles con la finalidad de evaluar en qué medida los cambios que se han producido en el modelo de ges-tión de la red de los aeropuertos españoles, es decir, la aplicación de un enfoque comercial, han supuesto una mejora en su capacidad de financiación.
Article
Through the formulation of an ad hoc costs equation for the Spanish airports network we try to detect the existence of economies of scale and density in the airports operations. On the other hand, since the international traffic imposes several additional costs, such as, control of passports, and customs, we also attempted to quantify the influence...
Article
Full-text available
En este artículo realizamos un breve análisis de la estructura productiva de la industria aeroportuaria. Dicho análisis se efectúa mediante el enfoque neoclásico de la función dual de costes. Utilizamos, para ello, la función translogarítmica de costes conjuntos, la cual, dada su flexibilidad, permite contrastar las hipótesis más comunes sobre la e...
Article
Full-text available
Un aspecto muy importante en el análisis econométrico de la función de producción (costes) en el ámbito de la economía del transporte es la definición de la variable que representa el output de la industria. La utilización de variables de producción inapropiadas conduce, en el peor de los casos, a conclusiones erróneas respecto a la tecnología en e...
Article
Full-text available
This paper describes the landing fee structures which are prevalent at most European airports: a mix of weight-based landing fees, passenger fees, and other charges. The paper describes alternative pricing systems which emphasize economic efficiency rather than airport finance considerations. Finally the paper calculates the structure of landing fe...
Article
Full-text available
This paper analyses the importance of international traffic and the level of service as key elements in the generation of commercial revenues for Spanish airports. Firstly, an ad-hoc model is developed to estimate the influence of the different types of air traffic on the commercial revenues of the whole network of Spanish airports. Secondly, the i...
