Air transport is an important part of any major domestic transport system. Consequently significant insight, analysis and methodological effort is necessary to devise an analytical model of a domestic air transport network with a view to the optimisation. Since the advent of airline deregulation in the US in 1978, most domestic airlines have adopted a routing and scheduling strategy known as hub and spoke. The adoption of this system presents a major change to network planning and operations for most airlines.
