In today’s competitive environment, airlines are doing everything they can to improve efficiency and productivity. Productivity and Efficiency Measurement of Airlines: Data Envelopment Analysis using R identifies and explains sources of airline efficiency and helps achieve these goals through the use of state-of-the-art measurement techniques.
Each chapter measures airline performance through the data envelopment analysis (DEA) model and other DEA variants. This book thoroughly discusses topics such as cost and revenue efficiency performance, carbon emissions performance management, and complex airline data analysis, employing appropriate models for each. Model methodologies are also discussed. The in-depth coverage is useful for all audiences, including students with a basic understanding of models, researchers and airline operators and management.
Productivity and Efficiency Measurement of Airlines: Data Envelopment Analysis using R provides R codes to help readers generate results and quantify efficient practices. These results provide airline decision-makers with the essential information they need to create better policies and avoid underperforming practices.
