Abstract

Este trabajo se propone responder las siguientes preguntas: ¿cuál es el nivel medio de eficiencia en el transporte de pasajeros de una muestra de aerolíneas que operan en el Hemisferio Occidental? ¿Cómo se posicionan aerolíneas latinoamericanas puestas en perspectiva con otras de países desarrollados que operan en las Américas? ¿Hay diferencias de eficiencia así definida entre las aerolíneas de la muestra? ¿A qué se deben? Para contestarlas, se emplean técnicas de frontera estocástica. Son novedades a estudios preexistentes el uso de una amplia gama de alternativas de estimación y el estudio específico de las aerolíneas latinoamericanas junto con las norteamericanas. This study aims to answer the following questions: which is the average efficiency level in passenger transportation of an airline sample operating in the Western Hemisphere? How do Latin American airlines perform in comparison with American ones? Are there technical efficiency differences between airlines of the sample? Why? To answer, we employ stochastic frontier methods and we add to precedent studies the usage of an ample set of alternative techniques and the specific consideration to Latin American airlines.
