Abstract: In this paper, network aspects of the US and EC air freight industries are examined. Distinctions between passengers and freight operations are made and the important role of air carrier's network is discussed. In the US after air cargo deregulation in 1977, all cargo carriers greatly increased their share of the air freight market by diversifying the range of air freight products offered and by developing multi modal networks. The all-cargo operators organised their networks around single hubs while the combination passenger/cargo carriers have developed interactive hub-and-spoke systems based around several regional hubs. These networks have evolved more for passenger needs than for cargo needs.
