[en] In this paper we measure technical efficiency and productivity gains in airline activities. Non-parametric frontiers and Malmquist indices of productivity are estimated for thirty-three airlines observed over the period 1977-1988. We identify three sources of growth: technological progress, efficiency change and route network characteristics. The results bring to light the reasons that pushed several airlines to merge when markets were deregulated.
