I was just wondering which city has the highest number of operational airports within the city boundary. I believe Anchorage has about 5.

Found this on Wikipedia:

The Los Angeles metropolitan area is served by more airports than any major city in the world, with 5 major commercial airports, and many more general-aviation airports. The main Los Angeles airport is LAX, the fifth busiest commercial airport in the world. Other major commercial airports include ONT, BUR, LGB & SNA. Los Angeles also has the world's busiest general-aviation airport, Van Nuys Airport (VNY).

Depends on how you are defining "city" and "airport." If you are defining it as metropolitan areas with commercial airports, I'd say London has a shot at the title, with LHR, LGW, STN, LTN, and LCY. You could also argue that the New York metro area has JFK, LGA, EWR, SWF, and ISP, and that Los Angeles has LAX, SNA, LGB, BUR, and ONT.


"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

Surely just because it is named London means jack crap.........
Stansted and Luton were airports long before the "London" tag got attached.....

If you wanna go that route then Detroit has
Metro Wayne Co.
Willow Run
City
Windsor
Flint
Lansing
Oakland/Pontiac
Toledo

Actually the question was airports within the actual city boundary, not metro area. Example, New York would have only two; LGA and JFK.

Also by airports, I meant all operational airports (commercial, GA, military, etc.)

agreed.........I was making the point that Calling Luton Airport "London Luton" was more a business decision more than a geographical one.

what's next, London Norwich?
London Bournemouth Hurn?
London East Midlands..........

No, London is the city they're designed to serve. Most people flying to Luton or Stansted will be going to London, not Luton or Stansted & Mountfitchet. Anyway, Luton and Stansted are only around 20-30miles from central London - around the same distance that Gatwick is, and Gatwick is clearly designed to dominantly serve London

No, because they're not designed to serve London


Including small operational airfields, London has:

Gatwick
Luton
Stansted
Heathrow
London City
Northolt
Redhill
Biggin Hill
Farnborough
Blackbushe
Southend
Elstree

Just to clarify about Anchorage, I can count a few more Ill add, for the rundown:
Ten Stevens Intl Airport
Lake Hood sea/float plane base
Elmendorf AFB
Fort Richardson
Merrill Field
Birchwood strip
then several lakes where float planes are common
Campbell Lake
Mirror Lake
Sand Lake
I also believe there is a strip in Girdwood
All of these are within Anchorage city limits

That being said, far and away it is mostly GA traffic.

"city limits" means different things in different countries too.

I agree. It's a three-way tie between London, New York, and Los Angeles, which makes sense if you give it half a thought.
