Abstract: This thesis explores and examines the formation, development and the current role of airport hubs for civil aviation within the context of Southeast Asia. I explain why certain airlines and airports are more successful than others, and how hubbing is used to increase network coverage and reach. The intricate linkages between airlines that use the 5th and 6th Freedom rights and airports which situate themselves as hubs are examined by looking at the extent to which various carriers contribute to airport hub formation. I also examine the operations of selected airlines and airports and the pattern of air services through an analysis of spatial networks, establishing the degree of hubness of the airports examined. This research uses the case study of the Australia-Europe air route (also commonly known as the Kangaroo Route) to illustrate the varying importance and significance of air hubs in Southeast Asia.
