    En este artículo realizamos un breve análisis de la estructura productiva de la industria aeroportuaria. Dicho análisis se efectúa mediante el enfoque neoclásico de la función dual de costes. Utilizamos, para ello, la función translogarítmica de costes conjuntos, la cual, dada su flexibilidad, permite contrastar las hipótesis más comunes sobre la estructura de producción. Estimamos parámetros tales como la elasticidad-coste, los rendimientos a escalas, la elasticidad-precio de la demanda de factores de producción y la elasticidad de sustitución entre factores. Dichos parámetros permiten comprobar las hipótesis de regularidad exigidas a la función dual de costes. This paper attempt to analyse the estructure of cost and production of the airport industry. The neoclassical approach of dual cost function was used. We tried to estimate the "translog" joint cost function. This flexible functional form gave us the possibility of directly modelling the structure of cost without imposing arbitrary a priori restriction on the structure of production. In order to test several hypotheses on the joint cost function we derived parameters such as cost elasticities, scale economies and elasticities of substitution.
