Process Of Starting A New Route

Sat May 17, 2003 5:47 am

I was curious about something. What does it take for an airline to start a new route when it is:

-a domestic route
-an international route with no continuation
-an international route that continues onward, but without 5th freedom rights
-an international route that continues onward with 5th freedom rights

Could you fill me in? Thanks!

On U.S. domestic routes, I don't think you need lot of permissions because it is pretty much deregulated. You would need permission and gates at the airport and it should make economic sense.

Don't know much about international.
