In Topic: Alternative thoughts on choosing hubs

Oh yes, Ive seen airlines based out of Manston (1 bar in the UK 45min connection time) and london city, basel, milan linate etc etc its a fantastic way to beat the bigger airlines.

4 issues for me though:

1) Low AGEX use to cripple me when I had an airline based out of a smaller airport as you dont have the O&D to cover some of the loss and PAX use direct routes. Base yourself out of a  8/9/10 bar airport you never get that issue.
2) Prices, you have to maintain a slightly lower price than you could otherwise do to get the ORS rating to max which eats into profits. 
3) Smaller airports have less slots, so less chances of expanding and if you are based in a large market like USA, Europe, China etc, another player can just eat up your slots once you become a threat. 
4) I always end up moving over to a bigger airport when the time comes.

There is demand for routes based off real life demand as well. Find out what routes are made from each airport and go from there.

Hey,

Whenever I got onto the ASroutemap it comes up with a warning that its not secure and then I cannot proceed? Any help?

Yeah , realistically how important is the RUAG 228 really? Its not. You are making something out nothing and causing people hassle for the sake it. Quite frankly you come across someone who isnt very nice.

Ellinikon

Saudi Arabia

JED 66%
RUH 68%
DMM 76%
Two small airlines currently based - be a good battle to start an airline there. 

Iran
Completely open - only a couple of airlines, other players have managed to built 1000+ plane strong airlines due to their perfect geographical Europe-Iran-Asia connecting possibilities. 

Czech Republic

Prague 70%

Surprised nobody has picked this up yet - massive opportunity for a player looking for a challenge.
