E-mail: w.augustyniak@ue.poznan.pl

 

ABSTRACT. The main purpose of this article is to measure the DEA efficiency scores of 4 Polish airports before and after market liberalization in comparison to the reference group that comprised 11 German airports in order to determine the impact of EU accession on their performance. In May 2004 Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and seven other countries joined the structures of the European. Since that date their airspaces has being covered by the Open Skies agreements which meant deregulation of their air transport markets. Results published in this article suggest that joining the EU had a positive impact on the financial efficiency of airports and had no impact on their technical efficiency.
