This exploratory study attempts to measure and explain the evolution of productivity of seven Canadian air carriers over the 1970-80 period. Based on recent work on time series analysis, and in contrast to the conventional approach, this paper links measured productivity to the potential and cyclical components of the Canadian gross domestic product. De nature exploratoire, cette étude mesure et explique l’évolution de la productivité totale des facteurs, calculée selon la méthode de Divisia, pour sept transporteurs aériens canadiens au cours de la période 1970-80. S’inspirant de travaux récents en analyse des séries chronologiques, l’approche retenue diffère de la méthodologie conventionnelle et relie l’évolution de la productivité du secteur aérien aux tendances séculaire et cyclique de la production intérieure brute du Canada.
