AbstractThe paper aimed to identify and analyze the explanatory
variables for airlines productivity during 2000 2005, by testing the
Pearson correlation between the single factor productivity capital, energy
and labor of a sample of 45 selected international airlines (4 Brazilian
carriers among them) and their productivity explanatory variables like
medium stage length, aircraft load factor, hours fl own and cruise speed for
selected routes besides aircraft seat confi guration and airlines number of
employees. The research demonstrated, that a set of variables can explain
differences in productivity for passenger airlines, such as: investment in
personnel training processes, automation, airplane seat density, occupation
of aircraft, average fl ight stage length, density and extension of routes,
