Air transport is an important part of any major domestic transport system. Consequently significant insight, analysis and methodological effort is necessary to devise an analytical model of a domestic air transport network with a view to the optimisation. Since the advent of airline deregulation in the US in 1978, most domestic airlines have adopted a routing and scheduling strategy known as hub and spoke. The adoption of this system presents a major change to network planning and operations for most airlines. The hub and spoke system proposed in this dissertation is for developing countries and based on the domestic Iranian air transport network. The aim of the research is to devise a practical domestic air transport network system, capable of dealing with strategic aspects of network planning and evaluation.
