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

Did you know?

World class airlines can open a new route in as few as 10 days
