The route and traffic structure of a short-haul domestic carrier, where sound scheduling is particularly essential, must be seen as one among several objects of rationalisation rather than as a given framework within which to decide on aircraft equipment. To arrive in the end at an efficient transport system characterised by non-stop services of high frequency and short turnaround and transfer times, ground handling of aircraft and passengers must be a swift process and, above all, a simple one. This calls for careful thinking in the planning of terminals geared to the requirements of this special kind of traffic. Another important area of study is the rapid enplaning/deplaning of passengers and the whole turnaround process as such, as well as rapid methods of transferring connecting passengers and their baggage from one flight to another.
