    Abstract :

    This paper analyzes the dynamic relationship between Mexican air transport
    expansion and economic growth. To this end, non-parametric cointegration techniques and
    non-parametric causality tests are introduced and applied to quarterly data of GDP and
    number of air passengers in Mexico for the period 1995-2013. These procedures allow to
    test the existence of long run relationship between the variables and to decide whether the
    model is linear or not. The empirical results show the existence of a cointegration relationship
    between air transport and economic growth, and that this relationship is linear. In addition,
    the nonparametric causality tests conirm bidirectional causality between transport
    and growth.
