... Yamaguchi found that "open sky" markets increased air cargo unit costs, possibly as a result of congestion in core hubs previously documented by Matsumoto (2004). These findings appear counterintuitive to a primary goal of air transport liberalisation in fostering competition, which should decrease cost, for the benefit of consumers (Iches, 2010). Achard (2008) develops a gravity model to assess air transport liberalisation on international air cargo flows, finding GDP to be a counterintuitively negative factor, whilst noting that substitution to surface transport modes may impair his results. ...
