At the time of the event eleven then-designated trunk carriers collectively controlled 87.2 percent of the domestic revenue passenger miles (RPMs) while 12 regionals 258 commuters five supplemental and four intrastates provided the balance of the RPM distribution. Which would still ply the skies when deregulation s dust settled?
In view of the congestion apparent at many international airports the ownership of slots at certain airports (the right to take-off or land an aircraft at a particular time of day or night) has become a significant tradable asset for many airlines. Clearly take-off slots at popular times of the day can be critical in attracting the more profitable business traveler to a given airline s flight and in establishing a competitive advantage against a competing airline.
Groups such as the International Civil Aviation Organization establish worldwide standards for safety and other vital concerns. Most international air traffic is regulated by bilateral agreements between countries which designate specific carriers to operate on specific routes. The model of such an agreement was the Bermuda Agreement between the US and UK following World War II which designated airports to be used for transatlantic flights and gave each government the authority to nominate carriers to operate routes.
As in many mature industries consolidation is a trend. Airline groupings may consist of limited bilateral partnerships long-term multi-faceted alliances between carriers equity arrangements mergers or takeovers. Since governments often restrict ownership and merger between companies in different countries most consolidation takes place within a country. In the U.S. over 200 airlines have merged been taken over or gone out of business since deregulation in 1978. Many international airline managers are lobbying their governments to permit greater consolidation to achieve higher economy and efficiency.
