Abstract: The proper identification of airline hubs requires both accurate definitions and appropriate data. Standard information sources do not feature the actual routes flown by passengers, and therefore a new and previously untapped database is introduced. The employed data are transnational and feature origin/destination statistics with additional information on intermediate stops (if any), which allows a thorough assessment of hub structures in the global airline network. A threefold analysis is presented, i.e.(i) an overview of the major hubs in absolute terms, (ii) a similar overview of hubs in relative terms, (iii) a more refined analysis of the spatiality of some important hubs.
