Higher productivity of airline industry is the key to faster economic growth of an economy. In this backdrop, this study estimates and compares average employee productivity (i.e. partial productivity) of three Asian airlines: Pakistan International Airline; Singapore International Airline; and Air Lanka over the period 1995-2009. According to results of this study, Singapore performed the best in terms of average employee productivity and average stage length. Air Lanka performed the best in terms of unit cost. Pakistan International Airline performed poorly in terms of all the three measures. Pakistan International Air line can improve in all the three fields, Singapore can improve in unit cost terms and Sri Lanka can improve in average employee productivity and average stage length.
