Price Movements of the Competing Airlines in the Indian Market: An Empirical Study (A)
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we analyze the price movements of the Indian domestic airline industry. In the first part, we conduct a detailed econometric analysis of five selected domestic routes. In the second part, we study the weekend effect on the average airfare. Our research suggests that competition steps up airfares as the departure date comes closer and weekend airfares are higher than weekday airfares. The application of Revenue Management and Dynamic Pricing is the common practice in the Indian domestic airlines industry.
