Develop my route network? | SITA


Airline revenues and profitability are increasingly dependent on network concentration, hub-and-spoke strategies and new routes. New destinations – even if temporary – are often necessary to keep up with passenger demand and competition.

Opening a new route requires more than just obtaining the necessary permissions. Airlines need to assess the viability of a route via forecasting, planning, scheduling and pricing. And they need to ensure the right IT and communications infrastructure are in place to support their operations.

How SITA can help
