Why Do Airlines Have High Frequencies (short Hops)

Wed Apr 03, 2013 4:53 am

Why on certain markets do airlines have such high frequencies...... ie AA MIA-MCO 8xdaily.
Is it that because the business markets between the 2 city pairs are that great it demands it?

What about the city pairs that have high frequency but are not business markets?

For short hops, frequency is the king!

The demand exists. Lots of traffic to/from MCO and Latin/Caribbean. MIA is the natural hub.

Indeed. And for every extra frequency add you vastly increase the combinations of outbound and inbound trips you can offer customers.
