This research is devoted to analysis of efficiency estimation in presence of spatial relationships and spatial heterogeneity indata. We presented a general specification of the spatial stochastic frontier model, which includes spatial lags, spatial autoregressivedisturbances and spatial autoregressive inefficiencies. Maximum likelihood estimators are derived for two special cases ofthe spatial stochastic frontier. Small-sample properties of these estimators and comparison with a standard non-spatial estimatorwere implemented using a set of Monte Carlo experiments. Finally, we tested our estimators on a real-world data set of Europeanairports and discovered significant spatial components in data.
