Abstract

The air transport has undergone a remarkable transformation over the past decade. The way we travel today is quite different from how we did ten years ago. Due to the emergence of low cost carriers, the market of air transportation have been constantly changing and presently witnessing the transformation of legacy carriers in order to manage to continue operating.

The main purpose of this work is to show the differences in efficiency for different performance areas on a case study comprised of six different airline carriers, Legacy and low costs, using a Multi Criteria Decision Making tool – Measuring Attractiveness by a Category Based Evaluation Technique (MACBETH).

With the results obtained in this study, is wanted to show the work that is being carried out to obtain a model that would measure the efficiency of one or various airline companies in a defined period of time, using a set of performance indicators, to which specialists in the area previously have given weights.
