The air transport industry does not seem to promote the idea of aircraft/train substitution. The airlines in particular do not do so, despite the fact that when rail infrastructure is provided at airports, airlines make use of that infrastructure. This article’s objective is to show that airlines can benefit from mode substitution, provided it is done as air/rail integration.
