Airline Hub
Airline
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.[a][b] 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

Non-stop Flight
A non-stop flight is a flight by an aircraft with no intermediate stops.Contents1 History 2 Compare 3 See also 4 Notes 5 References 6 External linksHistory[edit] The 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.[1] 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.[2] As fuel prices fell and aircraft became more economical the economic viability of ultra long haul flights improved.[2] Compare[edit]Direct flightSee also[edit]Aviation portalDomestic flight Flight

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.Contents1 Use in airlines 2 Advantages 3 Disadvantages 4 See also 5 ReferencesUse in airlines[edit] The point-to-point model is used widely by low cost carriers, including Allegiant Air
Allegiant Air
and Southwest Airlines
Southwest Airlines
in the U.S., and European carriers such as Ryanair, easyJet and Wizzair.[1] Many such airlines sell each flight leg independently and have no concept of round-trip ticketing or connecting flights so baggage must be collected and rechecked even to transfer between flights booked at the same time on the same airline
