Abstract

Both the significant increasing of China's foreign trade and the intrinsic advantages act as a spur for the outstanding development of China's civil aviation. Accompanied by an increase in traffic volume, the number and capability of civil airports continues to increase. In the coastal regions of China, the density of civil airports has reached a situation of "one airport per city." However, the high density of civil airports has also driven the civil airports into a dilemma: large-scale civil airports are overloaded, while smaller and medium-size airports are running at a deficit. The airport alliance is regarded as the solution for the survival of small and medium-sized airports. In order to analyze and validate this opinion, this paper first took airports of the China West Airport Group and non-Alliance ones as examples to collect data; secondly, the super efficiency Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) method was taken to evaluate the technical efficiency of two kinds of airports from 2004 to 2012; finally, covariance analysis was employed to explore the factors of technical efficiency differences between the two kinds of airports.
