The costs of Fit for 55 policies make European air travel more expensive. As a result, we find reduced demand within the EEA and a shift to competing non-EEA airports. Associated carbon leakage reduces the overall CO2 emission savings.
SEO Amsterdam Economics and EGIS conducted a study for the European Commission on the economic developments of the EU Aviation Market, serving as a supporting document of the new Aviation Policy pursued in the European Union. Market developments showed a viable economic landscape for European aviation before the pandemic. Over the following years, the developments of the aviation industry will mainly be impacted by the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and environmental considerations.
The corona crisis has led to a strong contraction of Schiphol’s route network. Compared to the competition, Schiphol performed the least poorly: competitors such as Frankfurt and Paris Charles de Gaulle experienced an even further decline in the number of flights. The Monitor network quality and state guarantees provides insight into the developments of the Dutch aviation network in a dire year for the aviation sector.
Research by SEO and NLR shows that the European aviation industry can reach net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050.
SEO Amsterdam Economics and To70 estimated the impacts of the corona crisis on the Dutch aviation industry
Schiphol's direct and indirect connectivity show stronger growth than at all other airports included in this study. Additionally, Schiphol still shows better development than Paris Charles de Gaulle.
ACI EUROPE - in partnership with SEO - released its fifth Airport Industry Connectivity Report. The report provides a comprehensive measurement and analysis of the way Europe's air connectivity has evolved over the past 10 years.
Introduction of new air service often leads to a strong increase in passengers travelling on this route. This paper provides empirical estimates for the level of this "market stimulation".
The number of seats to the United Arab Emirates (especially Dubai) has greatly increased and the competition on destinations in Asia and Africa has grown.
This report aims to provide a better understanding of the factors that influence the level of air fares in Europe, and specifically the impact of airport capacity constraints.
