Formatted abstract
This research report examines the effects of two years of open competition in the Australian domestic aviation industry following the Government's decision to deregulate the industry. Deregulation commenced in Australia on 31 October 1990 and has impacted on all areas of the airline industry. The report identifies the effects of deregulation on the structure of the industry, the resultant effect on the price of airfares as a consequence of the increased competition and the changes that have occurred to airlines services and standards.

After just two years since the barriers to entry were removed, the industry has seen the demise of two entrants and further changes to Government policy. The net effect of these changes together with the passing of time may again require the Government to intervene in the industry to ensure a major carrier does not monopolise the market. This would result in creating legislation similar to the "Two Airline Policy" which deregulation was designed to replace.

The report concludes with predictions for the future of the industry with two possible scenarios being presented.

To present an up-to-date and factual report, intensive research of current literature has been undertaken. Literature from books, periodicals and newspapers have provided considerable material for the paper. In addition, the extensive industry experience of the author has been utilised as have industry statistics and reports.
