Économie du Transport Aérien
Les cours sont dispensés principalement dans le cadre de la formation des ingénieurs de l'ENAC, mais également dans le cadre de mastères ou autres formations en France et à l'étranger. La majorité des cours est en anglais, l'ENAC intervenant de manière croissante à l'international.
Sauf mention contraire, tous ces cours ont été rédigés par Nathalie Lenoir, avec l'aide passée et regrettée d'Emile Nakache qui nous a quitté en 2001 déjà...

Regulation of the air transport markets
Air transport markets have been regulated since the beginnings of air transport. Since the end of the seventies, there has been a large deregulation process on the US and European markets, and to a lesser scale, on the international markets. The main focus of this course is to study the consequences of the regulations and deregulations on the markets (including passengers, traffics, airlines...).

Airline pricing and revenue management
Since the deregulation of the US markets, airlines have developed several tools in order to become more competitive (see course on regulation), with the aim of improving their cost efficiency, or optimizing their revenues.

Competition in the airline industry
The airline industry is obviously not a perfectly competitive industry. The market structure in the airline industry is at best an oligopoly, and can be in some cases a monopoly. Due partly to this situation, the airline industry has been regulated for a long time; however, it is now largely deregulated, and competition encouraged. In this course, we study the characteristics of competition in the air transport industry, take a look at the main markets, analyse the threats to competition, and conclude on the future of competition in the airline industry, and on the role of the authorities in preventing anti-competitive practices and maintaining a competitive equilibrium on the markets. A bit of regulation, a bit of networks, and more...
