Air-Shuttles Around The World

Mon Jul 09, 2012 1:28 am

So I was wondering if anyone could be kind enough to provide a list of the airlines (and the city pairs obviously) that operate shuttle service between two cities. By shuttles I mean hourly or semi-hourly flights. Also, is this a profitable business-model? I mean, it's good that they offer schedule flexibility, but they can still offer flexible schedules without the flights having to be hourly.


Have a good start of the week y'all!

QX has nearly 20 daily between PDX and SEA flying under Alaska flight numbers. Not sure if Skywest is flying any frequencies on the route on behalf on AS. Depending on time of day it is mostly every 30 minutes or every hour.

QX SEA-PDX (Every 1/2hr during peak hours, every hour during other times)

DL LGA-BOS (Every Hour)
DL LGA-DCA (Every Hour w/some 1/2 hour flights)
DL LGA-ORD (Every hour, 15 after the hour)

UA LAX-SFO (Approximately every hour)

WN: Just about all LA Airports-PHX, OAK, LAS and SJC are pretty much the equivalent of a shuttle service (give or take)

Those are the only ones that I can think of off the top of my head. I can say though, I do know there are more, especially out of Chicago (ORD and MDW), DTW, MSP, MIA, DFW, NYC and WAS.

not necessarily an air shuttle but the route between BCN-MAD is considered by some as an air shuttle due to it's frequency and number of pax transported. The train route between the two is sure to cut down on number of people transported by plane though.

DL has hourly flights between ATL and MCO about every hour from 7 am to 11 pm. I'm not sure if this quallifies as a true shuttle.

Obviously most pax are connecting through ATL to pay a visit to Mickey and Minnie.

QF SYD-MEL EVERY hour and most half hours from 06:00 to about 21:00 and some quarter hours in very peak times. Aircraft types include B763, A330, B738 and still, I think, some B734s.

See www.qantas.com.au for the full schedule

There used to be one OO CRJ roundtrip from PDX to SEA and back,as of a year ago, not sure with the enhanced OO flying to California from PDX for the summer if it still operates. The I-5 shuttle has been operating almost as long as QX.

Hawaiian Airlines typically has about 15-20 flights per day between HNL and each of the four Neighbor Island airports they serve (ITO, KOA, OGG, LIH); there aren't any commercial water carriers currently providing interisland passenger service between Oahu and any of the Neighbor Islands, so air travel is basically the only option.

Island Air and Go! are both significant interisland airlines, but neither of them provide more than a fraction of the service HA has (although WP is the main airline to the islands of Moloka'i and Lana'i, neither of which are served by HA.)

SAO (CGH and GRU) to RIO (SDU and GIG)

TAM has 43 daily departures each way.
GOL has 45 daily departures each way.

If you consider VCP as a Sao Paulo airport, add two more flights for TAM and 21 more for Azul.
