Airline Hub
AIRLINE HUBS or HUB AIRPORTS are used by one or more airlines to concentrate passenger traffic and flight operations at a given airport . They serve as transfer (or stop-over) points to get passengers to their final destination. It is part of the hub-and-spoke system . An airline operates flights from several non-hub (spoke) cities to the hub airport, and passengers traveling between spoke cities need to connect through the hub. This paradigm creates economies of scale that allow an airline to serve (via an intermediate connection) city-pairs that could otherwise not be economically served on a non-stop basis. This system contrasts with the point-to-point model , in which there are no hubs and nonstop flights are instead offered between spoke cities. Hub airports also serve origin and destination (O a flight from a hub to a spoke carries not just passengers originating at the hub, but also passengers originating at multiple spoke cities. However, the system is costly

Airport
An AIRPORT is an aerodrome with extended facilities, mostly for commercial air transport. Airports often have facilities to store and maintain aircraft, and a control tower . An airport consists of a landing area , which comprises an aerially accessible open space including at least one operationally active surface such as a runway for a plane to take off or a helipad , and often includes adjacent utility buildings such as control towers , hangars and terminals . Larger airports may have fixed-base operator services , airport aprons , taxiway bridges , air traffic control centres, passenger facilities such as restaurants and lounges , and emergency services . An airport with a helipad for rotorcraft but no runway is called a heliport . An airport for use by seaplanes and amphibious aircraft is called a seaplane base . Such a base typically includes a stretch of open water for takeoffs and landings , and seaplane docks for tying-up

Spoke-hub Distribution Paradigm
The SPOKE-HUB DISTRIBUTION PARADIGM is a form of transport topology optimization in which traffic routes are organized as a series of 'spokes' that connect outlying points to a central 'hub.' Simple forms of this distribution/connection model may be contrasted with point-to-point transit systems in which each point has a direct route to every other point, and which was the principal method of transporting passengers and freight until the 1970s. The spoke-hub distribution model was pioneered by Delta Airlines
Delta Airlines
in 1955, and revolutionized the transportation logistics industry after Federal Express demonstrated the value of the concept in the early 1970s. The distribution topology was subsequently adopted by the telecommunications and information technology sector in the late 1970s, and where it is known as the star network topology

Economies Of Scale
In microeconomics , ECONOMIES OF SCALE are the cost advantages that enterprises obtain due to size, output, or scale of operation, with cost per unit of output generally decreasing with increasing scale as fixed costs are spread out over more units of output. Economies of scale apply to a variety of organizational and business situations and at various levels, such as a business or manufacturing unit, plant or an entire enterprise. For example, economies of scale apply to the fixed cost to produce units of output through production and manufacturing. When average costs start falling then economies of scale are in production with fixed costs being a requirement for the equation. With no fixed costs, the average cost and average variable cost would be equal. Economies of scale exist in real life

CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 Compare * 3 See also * 4 Notes * 5 References * 6 External links HISTORYThe dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 eventually opened up Russian airspace, allowing commercial airlines to exploit new circumpolar routes and enabling many new non-stop services. In the late 2000s to early 2010s, rising fuel prices coupled with economic crisis resulted in cancellation of many ultra-long haul non-stop flights

Point-to-point Transit
POINT-TO-POINT TRANSIT refers to a transportation system in which a plane, bus, or train travels directly to a destination, rather than going through a central hub . This differs from the spoke-hub distribution paradigm in which the transportation goes to a central location where passengers change to another train, bus, or plane to reach their destination.
