I did a search a could not find any threads related to this, so hopefully this isn't a post that has already been beaten to death. I'm curious about airlines that have Mini-hubs in other countries. The only ones that I'm aware of are IB in Miami, Aerolinas Argentinas in MAD, and I believe NW operates feeder flights out of either Narita or Haneda. I'm curious if there are others in the world and how airlines go about negotiating the rights for these hubs?

Flybynight-Likewise, CO's Agana Field hub is located within a US Commonwealth (Guam), the only international hubs US carriers have are NW and UA at NRT, and NW at AMS if you choose to call their shared hub with KLM that as they do.

plenty of airlines do this .. one of the reasons being to cut costs by establishing a large local crew base at their foreign hubs .. e.g. NWA at Narita.
Qantas' Asian hub is in Singapore. Oz flights connect through SIN to a myriad of destinations : kota kinabalu ( AO ) , bali ( AO ) , hkg ( used to on QF 77 per-sin-hkg ) , london , rome ( pulled ) , paris , and frankfurt. the number of qantas/ba/australian airlines planes in singapore gets really phenomenal during the evenings ... Singapore Changi Airport really has a very intimate orgy with up to 8-9 Kangaroos in the evening !
Emirates' Asian hub is also in Singapore, mainly connecting Europe/Middle Eastern passengers with SIN-Oz flights. This is changing as Emirates is opting for non-stop services to Oz from their Dubai homebase.

Air France has operated a minihub out of MIA for at least 15 years currently using A-320's and EMB-145's, and in the past using B-727's and B-737's. They use the hub in a similar way to IB in that they connect passengers from Carribean and Latin destinations to Trans-Atlantic flights out of MIA.

I used directly these hubs :
AF operated a "mini hub" in Miami" with EMB 145, A320 and B737, connecting very well only french caribean. In this miny hub connection made by Delta allows good flight also from french caribean to North America
QF operated a"(no so many) miny hub" in SIN. I stay there three Years ago when the new QF/BA terminal was still in costruction, and this Year, With a new dedicated terminal building.
