YUL has non-stop service to LHR and direct one stop service to YXU
YYZ has seasonal non-stop service to Sydney, NS (YQY) and year-round direct one stop service to Sydney, NSW (SYD). And if you want to get technical it also has non-stop service to Victoria, BC (YYJ) which is located in Sidney, BC.
AC also has nonstops from YYZ to:
Portland, OR (PDX) (AC Embraer 190...seasonal service, not currently operating)
Portland, ME (PWM) (Air Georgian Beech 1900D)
Quoting airontario (Reply 3): YYZ has seasonal non-stop service to Sydney, NS (YQY) and year-round direct one stop service to Sydney, NSW (SYD). And if you want to get technical it also has non-stop service to Victoria, BC (YYJ) which is located in Sidney, BC.
And re YYJ airport being in Sidney, BC, AC also operates YYZ-RIC (Richmond, VA) and YYZ-YVR (Vancouver airport is actually in Richmond, BC).
AC also operates YYZ-YYT (St. John's, NL), YYZ-YSJ (Saint John, NB), and YYZ-ANU (the Caribbean island of Antigua, the capital of which is St. John's). They also serve Fort St.John, BC (YXJ) but from YYZ that requires a connection at YVR.

Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 8): If you relax it from "same" to "similar," the numbers go up even a bit more. For instance, ATL also has service to both CHO and CLT. And YYZ, YUL and YOW all have service to both CLT and YYG.
Very true. Using the "similar" standard, DFW could also include Wichita, KS (ICT) and Wichita Falls, TX (SPS).
Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 9): And MIA-Santiago, Cuba (SCU), the 2nd largest city in Cuba, might be a possibility one day if US-Cuba diplomatic issues are ever resolved.
Hopefully sooner rather than later.
Quoting BrusselsSouth (Reply 10): And US Airways also had a short lived service (around 2009/2010?) to Birmingham, UK (BHX) in addition to their service to Birmingham, AL (BHM).
Interesting. Perhaps UA will begin EWR-BHM in the future to complement their existing EWR-BHX route?
Quoting BrusselsSouth (Reply 11): Not an exact answer to your question since the spellings are different, but LAX has nonstop service to:
- Monterrey, Mexico.
- Monterey, California.
That certainly counts. No doubt that the spelling is far closer than the actual pronunciation by locals of each city (but perhaps not as different as the local pronunciations of Birmingham, AL and Birmingham, UK).
Here are the 5 "same name" city pair nonstops from CLT:
Charleston, SC (CHS)
Charleston, WV (CRW)
Fayetteville, AR (XNA)
Fayetteville, NC (FAY)
Greenville, NC (PGV)
Greenville, SC (GSP) - disregarding the well-deserved "Spartanburg" portion of that airport's name
Jacksonville, FL (JAX)
Jacksonville, NC (OAJ)
Portland, ME (PWM)
Portland, OR (PDX)

Quoting ANITIX87 (Reply 19): The really interesting question would be whether there are there any flights that directly link these "same name" pairs (i.e. a flight from MHT to MAN).
At one time, a carrier (forget whch one) operated DCA-IAD-somewhere on the west coast, to get around the DCA perimeter rule. They didn´t sell local traffic DCA-IAD but the flight still operated "Washington-Washington" as the first leg.
