Airlines With More Than 5 Hubs/mini-hubs

Mon Oct 23, 2006 2:50 am

I just need a review of airlines with more than 5 hubs or mini-hubs or focus airports:

1. I believe the most number of hubs are the express/package carriers like FedEx,
UPS, DHL, etc. However, their flight schedules are very elusive-----not even
OAG Air Cargo Guide include them in their list.
I appreciate anyone who can tell me the nubs of these carriers and sample
routes and type of aircraft used. I know even DHL has a hub in the Caribbean
with prop cargo planes.

2. Most US Airlines have more than 5 hubs/focus cities:

AA: DFW, ORD, MIA, SJU, JFK, LGA, RDU, SFO, LAX, STL

DL: ATL, CVG, SLC, JFK, MCO, BOS, LGA, FLL, LAX, DCA

UA: ORD, IAD, DEN, SFO, LAX, NRT, MIA

US: PHL, CLT, PIT, LAS, PHX, LGA, DCA, BOS, FLL

NW: DTW, MSP, MEM, NRT, AMS, IND, MKE

CO: EWR, IAH, CLE, HNL, GUM, FLL

WN: DAL, HOU, MDW, LAS, PHL, MCO, STL, MCI, PHX

3. I can't think of any other airline with more than 5 hubs/focus city----can you? Wait.......Ryanair is one and perhaps some of LCCs in Europe

I would add SEA to that list, and maybe to the UA list as well.

MIA was taken off the list years ago.

I am not so sure about FLL? Sure they have alot of Gulfstream International flights but I never saw FLL as a CO focus city.

AC
YUL, YYZ, YYC, YVR, LHR
I would think all these airports receive enough daily AC passengers to be considered a mini-hub at the least.

DL also have (had?) a large European hub at FRA. Think it's been scaled down a lot lately.

EZY have hubs at LPL, LTN, EMA, STN and LGW, along with GVA and AMS internationally.

Isn't LAX also a QF hub?

One more: Blackpool

Another European low-cost with a record-breaking number of hubs is Air Berlin:

DUS, HAM, BER, FRA, DTM, MUC, PAD, HAJ, STR, CGN, NUE, ZRH, STN, PMI, AGP and BGY.

Let's not forget SXF! That's a big EZY hub for their A319s; 28 destinations, I think all apart from one or two are served by SXF-based a/c.

Technically, Skywest doesn't operate a hub at ATL. While ASA is a subsidiary of Skywest Inc., Skywest Airlines and ASA are operated as separate airlines. Replace ATL with PDX and you would have the list of OO hubs.

AirTran:

ATL
BWI
MDW
MCO
IND
CAK
FLL
TPA
BOS
RSW
