Abstract:The US-EU Open Skies Agreement has as one of its objectives to promote competition in the transatlantic air transport market. This study will analyse the development of competition in the transatlantic market in relation with the agreement. In order to do so, the study will analyse various variables which are possibly related to competition. These variables are divided into two groups, on the one hand there are variables that influence competition, and on the other hand there are variables which are effects of the competition. The variables possibly related to competition will be described and analysed for periods before and after the implementation of the US-EU Open Skies Agreement. The variables which are possibly related to competition will form the structure for the study of the five selected cases in this study. These selected cases are the following countries: the Netherlands, Austria, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Spain. By analysing data from the T-100 Database, which provides data for the analysis of the variables, we will make a description of the development of the competition in the transatlantic air transport markets in these countries.
