[Abstract]: After a careful explanation of the evolution of China’s airline industry, this paper looks at the airfares of China Eastern Airlines on its key business routes out of Shanghai with the purpose of detecting any market power that it might have developed following the 2002 airline consolidation, using a simple difference-in-differences approach. The results in this study do not reveal any serious market power exercised by China Eastern in 2003.
