High Speed Train as a Feeder for Air Transport

ICE_TrainIlse Terpstra and Mark G. Lijesen

Air transport and high speed trains (HST) are seen as competitors in short to medium range markets. Recently, the view of HST and air transport being complementary modes has emerged. This paper extends the literature by looking at the impact of high speed rail on airport competition, focusing on the new HST-link between Amsterdam and Brussels. We conduct a detailed analysis regarding the airport choice of passengers living in the catchment areas of these airports and compared the results with airport choice in Spain, where a HST is already running.
