In this paper, the linear integer programming(LIP) was used to model two hubs location problem and network construction for a regional company of WAEMU zone . Taking account of passengers flow and the movements of planes recorded in the airports in the constraints, the model takes into account the rate of filling of the planes, one of the crucial factors for a company to maximize its profit. Minimizing the sum of the distances in the objective, the company makes savings on the fuel and minimizes its costs on aircrew which is remunerated by flight hours.
