The following is a list of commercial short-haul civilian passenger "regional" airliners by historical epoch, of aircraft with significant build numbers which preceded and set the course for the transition to, and rapid adoption of regional jet aircraft among the smaller airlines. Included are aircraft with limited build numbers but highly significant technological features. These aircraft are distinguishable from other airplanes because of their significance in filling the short-hop role in the hub and spoke model of passenger and cargo distribution. Although many airlines used this type of equipment for flights over three hours in length in the U.S in what have been called by many passengers as cramped, and claustrophobia inducing aircraft cabins. The following aircraft are generally considered to be regional airliners and not mainline aircraft with a few noteworthy exceptions.
