Airport Capacity Expansion Strategies in the Era of Airline Multi-hub Networks
1.71 KB •
Many major airports are hubs for network carriers at the same time as serving a large local market. The complementarity between these functions is often seen as a prerequisite for viable hub operations, suggesting that spreading the hub network over multiple airports can be very costly and damages the corner stone of the hub operation: the creation of scope and density economies.
