dc.description.abstractThe aim of this project is to predict and investigate whether Barcelona’s airport is going to be a Hub, and what strategy should Barcelona airport follow. In this report, the main concepts that will be used, and that are fundamental for the well interpretation of the project, will be introduced. Followed by a put on record of Barcelona's airport most significant matters, so as to have a rich background of it. I believe that in order to speak about the current situation of Barcelona-El Prat and its potentiality to become a Hub for trans-continental flights, it is necessary to understand the main features of the industry, such as its structure, the rationale behind Hub-and Spoke networks, the phenomenon of airline alliances and finally the determinants of Hubbing choices. That is why there will be analyzed the most important factors that make an airport become a Hub, or that a Hub is supposed to have; then taken in the specific case of Barcelona. As well as mentioning, how its shortcomings could be improved; being finally summarized in a SWOT analysis were all the strengths and weaknesses will be patent, with a final prediction of what tendency will El Prat lead to, in the following years.
