The Netherlands Directorate General of Civil Aviation has asked The Brattle Group to assist them in evaluating the effectiveness of Dutch air transport policy. In particular, the Directorate General seeks research that analyses the following questions:

  • What has been the economic impact, in terms of accessibility by air and economic spin off, of the Dutch liberal air transport policy up till now?
  • Has the forefront position in Open Skies relations been advantageous in the end? Did the forefront position have any negative effects and/or were the positive effects by far more important?

Using aviation industry data and economic reasoning, this study offers analyses useful in answering the above questions.
