Abstract

In this paper, we measure the productivity changes of 30 airports in Greater China during 2000–2006 by computing their Malmquist productivity indices using parametric output distance functions. On average, the productivity of airports grew at 10.3% annually over our period. In addition, decomposing the Malmquist index did not provide evidence supporting any “catching-up” in technical efficiency between regional airports and major hubs.
