08.04.2013

On Monday 8 April Airneth and VU University organized a lunch seminar entitled 'High speed rail and aviation: from competition to cooperation? Evidence from China and Europe’, given by Airneth fellow prof. dr. Anming Zhang (University of British Columbia) and dr. Mark Lijesen (VU University). Anming Zhang kicked off the seminar by discussing the development of High Speed Rail in China, which now has by far the world’s largest HSR network, and its rationales. He elaborated on how Aviation and HSR compete, drawing experiences from China and other countries. Finally, he discussed the impact of HSR-airline cooperation on passengers and social welfare. Mark Lijesen then compared the European situation to the Chinese and reflected on the similarities and differences.
