In the airline industry, a focus city is a destination from which an airline operates several point-to-point routes. Thus, a focus city primarily caters to the local market than to connecting passengers. However, with the term's expanded usage, a focus city may also function as a small-scale hub. Allegiant Air, JetBlue and Frontier Airlines are examples of airlines that consider some of their destinations to be focus cities.
