Network Economies Kelly (1998) states that in a network economy, value is created and shared by all members of a network rather than by individual companies and that economies of scale stem from the size of the network - not the enterprise. Source: Kelly, Kevin New Rules for the Wired Economy.
Network Economies A hub is a term used to refer to an airport that airlines use frequently for connecting passengers, and cargo. Cargo and travellers moving between airports not served by direct flights use a hub to change planes to get to their destination. Source: speaking/aviation-glossary
Network Economies Hong Kong International Airport – International Hub HKIA is connected to about 160 destinations, including around 40 in the Mainland, through about 900 daily flights by over 100 airlines. Source: HKIA
Price Discrimination Price discrimination can exist when three conditions are met: consumers differ in their demands for a given good or service, a firm has market power, and the firm can prevent or limit arbitrage.
Price Discrimination Airline industry is ideal for price discrimination: The seller has some control on the price, buyers have different price elasticities of demand, and resale of the ticket by the buyer is not possible.
Price Discrimination Yield Management: Software can constantly calculate the empty seats remaining and price them while maximizing returns.
Price Discrimination Airline price discrimination represents an attempt to charge the business traveler more than the leisure traveler, because business travelers typically have less elastic demand.
Price Discrimination By offering different tickets (Saturday night stay- over restrictions, advance purchase discounts, and roundtrip discounts), airlines are attempting to have consumers sort themselves between business and leisure travelers.

Vertical Integration Vertically integrated companies in a supply chain are united through a common owner. Usually each member of the supply chain produces a different product or (market-specific) service, and the products combine to satisfy a common need. Source: Wikipedia

Funding Borrowing Significant borrowing may adversely affect the credit ratings of AAHK User pays Significant levy on user fees may adversely affect the air traffic in the future, thus the forecasted traffic volumes and projected revenue become unreliable Dividends The withheld dividends still need to pay back the stockholders IPO The goal for HKIA would become profit-maximization Hinder investment on infrastructure which lead to short- term loss in accounts

Tourism Aviation-facilitated tourism impacts Tourism exports When calculating the economic impact, consider only outbound tourism Net tourism* Net tourism equals tourism exports minus tourism imports minus tourism spending on the airport island The net tourism impacts on Hong Kongs economy were estimated by subtracting the tourism import impact estimates from the tourism export impact estimates. *This parts information is quote directly from ESAs Economic Impact Study for HKIA.

Air Pollution Aircraft engine emissions approximately consists of 70% carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) < 30% water vapor (H 2 O) < 1% each of nitrogen oxides (NOx) carbon monoxide (CO) oxides of sulfur (SOx) volatile organic compounds (VOCs) particulates Source: Federal Aviation Administration

Quantification of Air Pollution Carbon Tax Australia charges carbon tax at a fixed price of AUD23/tonne of CO 2 for ~500 companies from July, 2012 New Zealand charges NZD25 for 2 tonnes of emission until 31 Dec Carbon credits can be exchanged in open market afterwards EU Emission Trading Scheme (ETS): Governments issue permits which are tradable privately, OTC or over EUs climate exchanges. Permit price ~ 10 per tonne on March 2012
Quantification of Air Pollution EU Allowance (EUA): permit to emit one metric tonne of CO2 under EU ETS throughout the period of the contract National Allocation Plans determine the total quantity of EUAs that Member States grant to their companies, which can then be sold or bought by the companies themselves.

EU ETS – Aviation Q&A 1 How are the aviation emissions allowances determined? The European Commission (EC) calculates the number of aviation allowances from 2012 based on the average annual aviation emissions by aircraft operators to and from European airports average emission 219,476,343 tonnes of CO 2 No of allowances in % of average:212,892,052 tonnes of CO 2 No of allowances from 2013 onwards 95% of average: 208,502,525 tonnes of CO 2 Target: Cut 50% carbon by allowance can emit 1 tonne of CO 2 Source: European Commission
EU ETS – Aviation Q&A 2 How are the allowances allocated? 82%: given for free to aircraft operators and 15%: allocated by auctioning 3%: allocated to a special reserve for later distribution to fast growing airlines and new entrants into the market. Source: European Commission
EU ETS – Aviation Q&A 3 How can the allowances be traded?

Noise Pollution Causes regional annoyance and interferes with communications, childrens learning, and enjoyment of the outside world. Health impact: depression, sleep disturbances and hypertension. Property prices of areas affected by the aircraft noise may decrease in value
Quantification of Noise Pollution To quantify the effects of noise pollution, hedonic pricing is developed Hedonic pricing A technique that derives values for non-market goods such as environmental quality using information on the value of market goods such as residential property. By analyzing a large set of properties that are exposed to varying levels of noise annoyance, while controlling for other relevant characteristics, one can obtain an implicit price for the characteristic peace and quiet.
