Impact of Liberal Air Transport Policy on Travel Demand in Lebanon (2012)
The study investigates the consequences of the adoption of a liberal air transport policy on the Lebanese aviation market. The analysis compares changes in market structure and performance on routes which have been liberalised. The findings show that where liberalisation has been followed by significant entry there has been a reduction in relative prices and a relative increase in service frequencies; patterns of entry are associated with demand characteristics on different routes. The study also analyses passenger traffic volumes, competition, published fares, airport income, direct employment and the performance of the MEA-Lebanon’s national carrier.
Update to the Civil Aviation Strategy for Lebanon (2010)
The latest strategic diagnosis to the Lebanese Civil Aviation was undertaken in the year 2000. However since that time, several changes and unforeseen events have taken place locally and internationally which made the traffic projections and other recommendations outdated. For this and other considerations, an updated strategy for the Civil Aviation of Lebanon has become a must to allow the air transport industry to prosper and to sustain growth amidst the huge emerging challenges - technological, technical, economic, regulatory, financial, human, legal and environmental.
The study proposed a strategy for future aviation planning to ensure high growth of passengers and cargo and enhancement of aviation safety and security. It also aims to evaluate the impacts and consequences of the implemented liberalization process, the organizational structure of the civil aviation regulator adopted in the law 481 of year 2002 and provide traffic projections (Passengers and Freight) which will be used for future planning, expansion programs and investment decisions.
