The "third level operations" considered are related to scheduled services involving the use of aircraft with less than 50 seats on low frequency and/or low density routes. It is estimated that domestic third level operations in the UK comprise, on the basis of seat capacity, from 1 to 2% of the total UK scheduled air operations. Attention is given to third level operations in the UK, the problems and prospects of French supplementary air carrier operations, questions of route licensing and operations, the market for small airliners to the early eighties, the characteristics of the "third level" as a complex market sector, and the development and operation of airports in the third level and regional context.
