Airlines

The job of an Airline is to move large numbers of people from one place to another by air. Because you need serious levels of support services, aircraft use airports, which are hopefully properly integrated into the road and rail networks.

Another issue is that aircraft use lots of fuel, so there is a move towards "modal shift", where you take a train or other cleaner mode of transport instead of planes where sensible.

However successful they are with encouraging modal shift, there are still some journeys where it is essential that you fly. For example trying to take a train to Barbados or Australia wouldn't work.
