This thesis has therefore the ambition to describe, analyse and comment the way airlines compete within the internal market. This thesis will focus on three aspects of competition: the competitive strategy of a single airline, the way airlines cooperate between each other, and to finish the circumstances under which Member States are allowed to support airlines through state aid mechanisms.
