particularly in short to medium routes linking metropolitan cities. HSR was introduced to Spain in 1992 with the opening of the 472 km MadrideSevilla line. The rail share of the whole air þ rail market increased from 21% in 1991 to 82% in 1993. In the LondoneParis route, EuroStar has, since introduced in 1994, captured about 80% of the point-to-point traffic (Steer Davies Gleave, 2006). The Taiwan High Speed Rail (THSR) started operation in January 2007, linking Taipei and Kaohsiung along the west coast with a total distance of 335.5 km. In less than three years, THSR has eliminated intra-Taiwan air travel services. In South Korea, the opening of HSR between Seoul and Busan in 2004 has significantly reduced air traffic between the two cities. The International Transport Forum (2009) reported that domestic air traffic in France declined by 7% between 2000 and 2007, which was mostly attributable to the increased availability of HSR connections.
