Tell Us About Your Local Airport!

Hi!

Just thought I'd try and start a thread where people can tell us a little about their local airport. Which one is it. What goes on there. Who are the major airlines. Where can you fly to. What are connections to and from the airport like etc.

Mine is London Gatwick which is about 30 minutes drive from my house. Gatwick was previously run by BAA (British Aviation Authority) who had to sell it because of monopoly laws and is now owned by a more independent company. There is lots of work going on there as a result as the airport gets a makeover from the new owners. The major airlines in Gatwick are European although USAirways has at least one flight daily from the USA as well as Delta. Easyjet are probably the biggest airline there and operate to many destinations in Europe. British Airways is in the North terminal (there are two terminals North and South) and fly a mixture of short haul European flights with mostly 737-400s and long haul flights to the USA and Caribbean with Boeing 777's. Other airlines seen there are FlyBe (Be stands for British European), Aurigny (an airline from Guernsey), Norwegian (a Norwegian low-cost airline), Thomas Cook (British charter airline), First Choice Airways (British charter airline), Emirates (flying Boeing 777's to Dubai), Virgin Atlantic (flying Boeing 747-400's to holiday destinations in the Caribbean I think). That's pretty much all I can think of. Anyway if you feel like it tell us a little about your local airport no matter how big or small.

Many thanks,

Pierre

I live right in between MIA & FLL so I guess I have two local airports!

MIA has ton of legacy traffic with the only exception being UA (very minor presence). The airport used to be a hub for many classic airlines such as Pan Am, Eastern, National, and Braniff. Usually with two airlines hubbing at the same time recently now it has only been AA. MIA is also ranked as the 2nd largest international gatewy in the U.S. Due to the large amount of South American and European flights. Historically MIA has been one of the most capable cities ti serve Latin American by being the only current U.S. Gateway to CLO, MAO, CNF, and COR. MIA usually gets 757, 738 , 767, A330 and 777 aircraft. Also not tomention the airport used to have a ton of 747 flights too (still plentiful but not comparable to the 90's). There are 4 terminals. The north terminal (Concourse D) is the main terminal for AA and other one world members. The central terminal (Concourse E, F & G) which handles alot of the European arrivals and Cuban charters. Lastley theres the south terminal (Concourse H & J). Concourse H holds Skyteam, CM, and CO while J holds *A members and is *currently* houses the only A380 capable gate. So as you can see MIA is pretty unique!

FLL has also seen its large share of airlines. Although its unique because it is mostly housed by LCC's. The airport is a hub for NK and 3M and a very large focus city for B6, WN, G4 and FL. While having a very large LCC presence the airport has also had alot of legacy presence. DL currently is the largest legacy with US and CO coming after. The airport alsocan credit its success to the VERY nearby to the cruise port. Sadly you can say FLL is a victim of its own success. FLL used to be alot better than MIA by most people's opinions. Mainly due to the airport having enough customs and immigrations to support the previous number of flights and having less traffic around the previous area. Now due to the fact that only two runways are long enough for anything smaller than a 767 (runway 9 can just barely handle a 747 but runway 13 can only handle up to a 767) and they both intersect each other the airport is pretty much a single runway airport, which is totally unacceptable for the amount of traffic it recieves. Although thankfully there has been plans to extend runway 9R to 8,000 feet over an expressway.. Quite an engineering feat!

As you can see MIA & FLL are my two favorite airports and They definetely deserve to be told about!

My local airport is Norwich, NWI :
http://www.norwichairport.co.uk/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwich_International_Airport

Current traffic consists of 3x per day KL (usually F70s) to AMS, twice daily Dash 8s of Flybe to both Edinburgh and Manchester, 5 daily to Aberdeen (3 on Eastern's Saabs and 2 on a BMI ERJ), and some summer charter flights. Most charter destinations are once per week, with 2 per week to PMI.

The airport was recently sold by the city council to Omniport, who also own Maastricht, and used to own Prestwick.

There is a council operated park and ride site for the city next to the terminal building, so busses are frequent to the airport every day except Sunday.

There is also an aviation museum on the opposite side of the runway to the terminal, which houses a Vulcan, a Nimrod, an F27, a Herald, and several smaller aircraft and small items.

Also to the north, an area of the airfield is used as a boneyard. When I last looked last week (http://signol.blogspot.com/2011/06/city-of-norwich-aviation-museum-other.html) there were 2x Arik Air B737s stored there, as well as 3x BAe 146s, one in Air France colours, one in Northwest Airlines, and a 3rd plain white.

Well, would you look at all those nice airports with commercial service! And all I've got is CYPQ...

The main business at the airport is Flying Colours Corp, which does interiors (factory-fresh and renovations) on anything up to CRJ/DH8 size, so while most of the aircraft parked there are business jets, we do see a few CRJs still wearing the airline paint schemes (and just recently an ex? IB DHC8!) but no commercial service... We're just too close to CYYZ for that, though who knows what may happen down the road if they don't turn Pickering (about half hour closer than YYZ) into the new GTA airport...

Other then them there are a few maintenance and avionics shops around, as well as one charter service (Vector Air) and a flight school (WM Aero). It's a nice little school, only 2 years old and just introduced the amazing new C152   

In the new development on the field we've got a nice 'terminal' on the way, with the ever-present Runway Cafe for good sunday brunches. The runway was just extended to 7000 ft as well, which is enough for anything up to about 737 size IIRC, so I'm hoping that we'll see Flying Colours take on even larger aircraft!

There are 2 local airports near DC, but I usually fly out of Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA). It is conveniently located at a mass transit stop, and there are a lot of flights to local destinations. The main operators there are DL and US Express. While it is convenient, it is not a spotters' delight. Mostly, there are many regional jets, and the occasional 737 or A319/20. The only international flights are to places with US preclearance, like YYZ, YUL, and NAS. I flew AC to YYZ once as a 7 year old. Just north of the airport, there is a good place to watch the planes land right over you. DCA is a good airport, but only for regional services.

DSA - Doncaster/Sheffield Robin Hood International Airport

I think it's the longest official name of an airport in the world. It's plain boring, about 30 mins car drive from me. It has very little traffic, mostly holidays and Wizzair to Poland! It was opened in 2005 by a Thomson B737 flight to Spain (Alicante or Tenerife) It's owned by the Peel Airports group which also owns LPL and MME. It serves about 900 000 people a year, however it's gonna fall this year since U2 has withdrawn. Main airline is Thomson, with holiday routes and therefore it's active during the summer. The main scheduled airline is W6 with flights to Warsaw, Katowice, Gdansk, Poznan, Wrocklow and Vilnius. Flybe is another important airline to airport serving Belfast City and Jersey. From 6th September a virtual airline, HiAir will launch daily flights to Amsterdam on a Jetsream 31 aircraft.

The airport was featured in the BBC mock up series "Come fly with me" which was broadcasted in early 2011. It has been featured in Emmerdale and Hustle. Most popular route is Palma De Mallorca, followed by Alicante, Katowice and Gdansk. DSA has also welcomed aircraft such as Antonov 225 and Boeing 747.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doncaster_Airport

I really hope that the airport will expand, but it seems doubtful as Leeds and Manchester are stealing the traffic.

My close one at the moment is BDL. Some airlines are WN,DL,B6,CO/UA,US,AA,AC,F9. Some Cargo ops are FX, and UPS, who has a hub at BDL. Bombardier also has a sizeable facility on the airport. There is also an ANG base that used to have A-10s. Not sure what they have now. Some destinations served are MSP,DTW,ATL,JFK,DCA,PBI,CVG,RDU,CUN by DL. AA flies to ORD, DFW, MIA, and SJU. AC flies to YUL and YYZ. CO flies to EWR and CLE. B6 flies to FLL and MCO. WN flies to BWI, MCO, LAS, MDW, TPA, BNA, and FLL. UA flies to ORD and IAD. US flies to CLT, RDU, PHL, LGA, PIT. Um Wow thats a lot more than I realized. It looks like so much written down.

My local airport is SMF. It opened in 1967 to replace SAC, which had no room for expansion (SAC is now a GA airport). In the late 1990s a second terminal opened, dubbed Terminal A. In the early 2000s the airport received its first international service, a daily Mexicana flight to GDL. The current service here is pretty typical of a mid-sized airport, with service from all the legacy airlines to most major hubs, and Southwest to most major West Coast cities and many of their big focus cities. Southwest has roughly a 50% market share here. Mexicana is now gone, but AS is flying to GDL 3x a week, and Aeromexico will be starting daily service soon. A new terminal is currently under construction to replace the outdated 1967 Terminal B, and is slated to open late this year.

When I was still living at home, Hopedale Industrial Airport (1B6) was the closest airport to me..

http://www.airnav.com/airport/1B6

I used to drive by sometimes, and I was certain that the weeds growing up through the runways cracks were kept in order by aircraft propellers.

Not a bad little place though...some airplanes based there and some relics too.

Now, closest is Boston-Logan. Kind of an upgrade

Well I live much closer to MIA but yep ditto MIA and FLL here. DCA used to be my local airport but moved back down to Miami this summer. I will say DCA is IMO the best airport in the United States for domestic travels.

Key word used to be. FLL really is worse then MIA these days. 5-7 years ago I never thought I would say that.

Just to add lets not forget MIA is the largest cargo airport in the US in terms of International Frieght and the 4th largest cargo airport in the country. Also MIA is one of the few airports in the US which has narrow body service from airlines from Europe with AF daily A320 flight to PAP and seasonal to SDQ. Also MIA has a lot of different traffic with airplanes from all over the world coming in to use the maintence faciilites and even Russian Aircraft which are based in Florida flying into MIA for cargo ops. MIA also see's its fair share of older jets such as DC-10s, 747-200s and 727s from many cargo operators. IMO and I am sure to many it is one of the best spotting airports in the world.

My former home airport and my namesake, GRB - Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport, is presently served by American Eagle/American Connection with ERJ-145 service to ORD, Delta/Delta Connection with CRJ-200/CRJ-900/E-175/MD-90/A319 service to DTW & MSP, Continental Express with ERJ-145 service to CLE, Frontier with A319 service to DEN & ERJ-135/145 service to MKE, and United Express with ERJ-145/CRJ-200 to ORD.

It was, at one time, a mini-hub for North Central Airlines, before they began to focus their efforts on MSP & DTW and has historically been a NC/RC/NW/DL stronghold. Some of the other airlines that have come and gone include USAir, Pan Am Express/Empire, Midway, Midwest Connect/Skyway, Air Wisconsin, Allegiant (which now serves nearby ATW), Chicago Express Airlines/ATA Connection, and Continental mainline.

My new home airport is PHX - Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. It is a hub for US Airways and Southwest, and US's corporate headquarters is located in suburban Tempe. Mesa Airlines also maintains a maintenance facility at the airport. PHX is served by nearly every major US carrier, and has international service from Aeroméxico Connect (ERJ-145 service to HMO), Air Canada (A319 service to YYZ and E-190 service to YYL), British Airways (B747-400 service to LHR), and WestJet (B737-700/800 service to YYC, YEG, YVR, and YWG).

Tampa and St. Pete. St. Pete is closer but not a lot of traffic from airlines. They only have three gates and two UPS planes that never move. The terminals are small too. Mostly private jets.
Tampa is very predictable. the traffic pattern is nothing surprising and the airlines and a/c are the same. not a spotters delight either. also, I feel the terminals are outdated in every way. I do like the easy access for plane spotting and the workers are friendly too.



From the airport with love

JFK is the main hub for JetBlue. . Although most people hate JFK (they have a reason to) It's my favorite airport, I love all the variety of international airlines and A/C. And of course, it's home to JetBlue and one of Delta's Hub (two of my favorite US AIrline) I often take the airtrain around JFK just for fun

I think we have a great little airport at RNO. It is larger than you would expect for a city the size of Reno because of the large volume of visitor traffic to Reno and Lake Tahoe.

For a resident, quick access to the Reno freeways is great. It usually takes only a minute or two from the parking garage to the freeway. Parking is very close to the terminal. Usually I can park just across the street in a covered garage. Long-term parking just means you go one floor up. There is a covered bridge to the terminal.

Once inside there is free wi-fi while you wait, and even free local phone calls. They have set up special waiting areas with lots of electrical outlets for people charging their computers and phones. There are also plenty of slot machines (this is Nevada!) that feature some of the worst odds in the state to make sure the visitors can spend their last dollar in Nevada before they leave.

The food is mediocre, but edible. It is improving, and may change a lot next year when the current landside food court is removed to build a new security facility to replace the two that exist now. That will free space airside for more food and shops. The airport is frequently updated so even though the building is about 50 years old the updated ticketing and baggage areas are fairly new. RNO may have one of the nicer bag claim areas in the US. It's light and airy, not some harshly lit basement. All that is done with no taxpayer money, just airline fees and concession income.

Reno is served by WN (the biggest), AA, UA, DL, Alaska, US. I only regret that there aren't many direct or non-stops to the east coast.

One refreshing thing about RNO is that the attitudes of passengers, staff, and even the TSA seems to be a bit more low key and relaxed than a big city airport. Few people seem rushed because the airport is easy to get to and security lines are usually short (except at 7-8AM). I don't get the feeling of being herded like cattle or packed like sardines in the waiting area.

If you ever fly into RNO be sure to heed the advice about wearing your seat belt tight. The runways are mostly north/south (16-34) because there are mountains east and west. The wind is frequently gusty from the west. That results in very interesting cross-wind landings. For flying fans it can be better than a roller coaster.

My local airport is DAY. Nothing too exciting or out of the ordinary here. Mostly just flights to primary hubs for the legacies and we're fortunate enough to have a couple LCCs that help keep fares reasonable at DAY.

DL: ATL, DTW, MSP
AA: DFW, ORD
CO/UA: CLE, DEN, EWR, IAD, IAH, ORD
US: CLT, LGA, PHL, DCA
F9: DEN, MKE
FL: ATL, BWI, MCO, TPA

DL, AA, FL, and F9 bring in mainline. Everything else is on RJ's.

Over Christmas I saw an Air Canada B1900 bound for YYZ. Not sure if the service still exist or not.

The terminal is pretty simple. A couple of food options past security, including a Max & Erma's. Usually you can show up about 75 to 60 minutes before your flight and be fine though (except during the early AM bank where just about every airline has a flight departing to each of their hubs between 6 and 8 - security can take quite a while during that time).
