For the airline also incurs some nonwage costs in employing people. These can represent anything between 15 per cent and 33 per cent of total labour costs, the proportion varying widely across the EU, from Sweden at the top end to Ireland and the UK at the bottom. The US lies towards the lower end of the European spectrum (but is still above Canada in this respect). When differences in social costs are put alongside differences in salary levels, the gaps between airlines in different parts of the world became even wider.

And the process of airline privatization has also started in the People’s Republic of China. In that country the two largest regional airlines, China Eastern, and China Southern, have between 30 per cent and 40 per cent of their share capital listed on stock exchanges. It is possible that further partial privatizations will soon follow, perhaps in the long term that of the flag carrier Air China. g. 4 per cent – the trend towards privatization is almost universal. 1, 60 are in 100 per cent private ownership, 15 are partially privatized and the remaining 25 are in full state ownership or very close to it.

In many empirical studies of air travel demand, the income factor has been represented simply as current income, with no recognition of the effect that wealth or assets (financial and non-financial) has on demand. When wealth, or ‘permanent’ income, is included the effect can be quite significant, as Alperovich and Machnes (1994) found in estimating demand elasticities for international routes to/from Israel. In a country like the UK, where about 70 per cent of households own their own home, house price inflation could well be exerting a considerable influence upon air travel demand, in the same way that the associated ‘feel good’ factor could be affecting demand for many other things.
