Was doing some cost-benefit analysis on whether to add some connections direct from Tenerife North when I fly them out of Tenerife South. I noticed that the timings of the existing TFN - TFS ORS ground network segments were on a fixed timetable, every 80 minutes even if connection times were uneven unto the connecting flight from South. Case in point I did this on other combinations across my network and different hubs etc… but i got genuinely curious, since these seem to be set timetables:
What is the method of determining the frequency of these connections? Is it a bar-to-bar fixed number?
How is the determined timetable, if regular as i predict, formed? I saw in some cases there was a common 00:00 LT segment - is this the point zero and then counted based on the frequency established?
Does this differ for airports with night bans? (So eg can I take a segment from Gyor-Per (no NTB) at 4 LT to catch a flight leaving Budapest (NTB) at 6:30 LT? or one from Bayreuth (NTB) to connect with a MUC departure (NTB) under similar timings?
What is used to determine the time requirement for these? Travel time on road? Or a number based on as the crow flies distances?
Thanks for help on topic, could not find anything like this on forums…
