A gateway city, in the travel industry, is a major international city which serves as an arrival and departure point for further connections to smaller, outlying cities and countries. Gateway cities are often the largest cities and/or capital cities of countries.

Gateway cities are usually situated with an airport, bus terminal, and train station, as well as seaports and ferry terminals if they are located by some water. The main airport and other transportation stations are usually considered to be a hub.
