Airline Hub Locations

Airlines use certain airports as gateways to multiple destinations other than their headquarters for connecting flights, which are called hubs. An airline hub is a specific airport that an airline company uses to move its passengers to the connected flights to reach their intended destination comfortably.

Oftentimes, a change of flights in between origin and destination airports is required while heading towards a final destination. In whats known as the hub-and-spoke system, hubs are the central connecting points that allow air carriers to concentrate traffic at specific destinations to facilitate easy transfers onward to a network of other destinations. 

Most airlines have more than one hub. Most of the major airline hubs are located in the biggest and the busiest airports in the world.

For your ease, airline route maps are also available in the magazines of the flights from where you can check your connecting flight route. Further, you can go through these maps to check the landing points in between your journey.
