The continued deregulation and liberalization of globally air delivery markets confronts airport planners with an more and more not easy context. at the one hand, the capital extensive, large-scale and complicated airport investments desire a special, long/medium-term making plans of airport infrastructure. Such making plans calls for not less than predictable site visitors volumes (and site visitors composition) in the making plans horizon. nevertheless, airline direction networks are more and more dynamic buildings that regularly convey discontinuous adjustments. for this reason, the even more risky airport site visitors restricts the worth of specified site visitors forecasts. Volatility of airport site visitors and its composition calls for flexibility of airport recommendations and making plans strategies. The ebook explores this challenge via a close examine of airline community improvement, airport connectivity and airport making plans within the deregulated ecu air shipping industry. The questions the ebook seeks to respond to are: how have airways answered to the regime alterations in european aviation with appreciate to the configuration in their path networks? What has been the effect of the reconfiguration of airline community configurations for the connectivity of ecu airports? How can airport planners and airport professionals take care of the more and more doubtful airline community behaviour in Europe?

On the Stavanger–Amsterdam service, KLM carries not only point-to-point passengers between Stavanger and Amsterdam, but also the transfer passengers who travel beyond Amsterdam to New York, Nairobi, Detroit, and so forth. The economies of scope arise because the density on the spokes is higher (Pels 2000) compared to a point-to-point network. These economies of density in turn imply economies of scale at the individual route level owing to the use of larger aircraft, higher load factors, and so forth.

It is important to note that we have no intention of presenting here classifications that are commonly exhaustive or mutually exclusive. On the one hand, hubs can be classified along many more dimensions (size, efficiency, for example). On the other hand, a single airline hub can, at the same time, be a wayport and regional hub or a specialized directional hub and hinterland hub. Consistently, the hyper-hub, mega-hub (Bootsma 1997) or super-hub (Ivy 1993, 216) may be considered the summum of ‘hubness’.

These measures include the percentage of transfer passengers (DoT 1990a; Kanafani and Ghobrial 1985; Morrison and Winston, 1995), the percentage of traffic at the three busiest airports in an airline’s network (McShan and Windle 1989), the number of outlying cities served from pre-defined hubs divided by the number of spokes radiating from it (Toh and Higgins 1985), and the actual number of connections in a network compared with the maximum number of connections (Wojahn 2001). Morrison and Winston (1995) demonstrated clearly the intensification of hub-and-spoke operations of US carriers after deregulation in 1978.
