A Questionnaire Survey on the Impact of Alliances on Airline Operations

Regulatory restrictions on market access, ownership and control have pushed airlines toward the formation of strategic alliance groupings. Although alliance grouping is not the optimal solution, it does harness the airlines against the instability of the sector and enable them to reap as many benefits as possible. This questionnaire survey researches how airlines judge their alliances, given such dynamics in the airline industry, the current crisis caused by the slowdown in the economy, and the 11 th September events. More specifically, a study is conducted on how airlines perceive the impact of alliances on their operation in general and on passenger traffic in particular. In addition, we look to how different types of partnership agreements and different types of routes have affected the results, and if airlines of different size, operating from different region and belonging to different alliance groupings have been affected differently.
