From Hub & Spoke To Long & Thin: How Airline Routes Are Changing

Posted by The MRJ Team on Aug 16, 2018 11:00:00 AM

In an air travel market expected to roughly double by 2036, and with a new wave of improved regional aircraft entering service, airlines are taking a hard look at how they organize routes.
