In this paper, we present an explorative analysis related to the involvement of low-cost carriers (LCCs) in codesharing agreements. Our goals are to evaluate the diffusion of the phenomenon across countries, and to identify the determining features of companies with regards to the codesharing propensity of LCCs. We analyzed the worldwide scheduling of LCCs in 2011, revealing that one-third of LCCs were involved in codesharing arrangements in 2011. Yet, only 25% of LCCs are involved in codesharing with carriers to whom they are not hierarchically linked. The spread of this phenomenon varied by geographical area, with LCCs in Europe, Australia–New Zealand, Asia, and North America being most likely to codeshare. The airline size, the hybridization of the carrier's business model and an airline network concentration affect the likelihood to codeshare.

Abstract

In this paper, we present an explorative analysis related to the involvement of low-cost carriers (LCCs) in codesharing agreements. Our goals are to evaluate the diffusion of the phenomenon across countries, and to identify the determining features of companies with regards to the codesharing propensity of LCCs. We analyzed the worldwide scheduling of LCCs in 2011, revealing that one-third of LCCs were involved in codesharing arrangements in 2011. Yet, only 25% of LCCs are involved in codesharing with carriers to whom they are not hierarchically linked. The spread of this phenomenon varied by geographical area, with LCCs in Europe, Australia–New Zealand, Asia, and North America being most likely to codeshare. The airline size, the hybridization of the carrier's business model and an airline network concentration affect the likelihood to codeshare.
