There is no immediate context; the subject matter, however, is aviation and air traffic.

direct route/non-stop route
Explanation:
me again...was too quick clicking on that submit box...
non-stop is another possibility in case it fits your context...
these are my suggestions if u are talking of airplane routes...
if you are talking of people routes and services (like passport control-security control) than you def. can use the word fast track as suggested by colleague A.S.
Good luck!
