Columbia, SC (CAE)

Columbus, GA (CSG)
Columbus, OH (CMH)

Panama City, Panama (PTY)

Portland, ME (PWM)
Portland, OR (PDX)

San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO)

Which other airports have nonstops to multiple examples of these? Could any airport have more than ATL? Are there examples of passenger confusion regarding these?

That non-stop aspect is quite misleading, don't you think?

Charleston, WV (CRW)

London, ON (YXU)
London, UK (LHR)

Manchester, UK (MAN)
Manchester, NH (MHT)

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.

According to the October 2012 OAG guide, it is a CRJ (Express Jet - DL connection).
It appears that this route will be ending on Feb. 13th, 2013:

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.

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.

MCO has service to:

- Manchester, NH (MHT) on Southwest.
- Manchester, UK (MAN) on Virgin Atlantic.

So does EWR:

- Manchester, NH (MHT) on United Express.
- Manchester, UK (MAN) on United.

And Philly too (PHL):

- Manchester, NH (MHT) on US Airways and US Airways Express.
- Manchester, UK (MAN) on US Airways.

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).

Not an exact answer to your question since the spellings are different, but LAX has nonstop service to:

Very true. Using the "similar" standard, DFW could also include Wichita, KS (ICT) and Wichita Falls, TX (SPS).

Interesting. Perhaps UA will begin EWR-BHM in the future to complement their existing EWR-BHX route?

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)

There are a decent number. MAD has service to both SCQ and SCL. Does somebody fly MAD-STI?

The October 2012 OAG guide does not list a MAD-STI nonstop. However, it does show a once weekly MAD-SCU nonstop on a CU IL9. So from MAD....

I'm not sure if this counts, but Dallas, TX and Dallas-Fort Worth, TX have similar names but different airports. ATL and HOU have service to both of them (on EV/DL and WN/AA respectively).

I have a good one on this, recently in Germany, a woman lost a court case. She booked a flight through a phone call to a travel agent.

Her destination was Porto, Portugal, she ended up in Bordeaux

The woman is from Saxonia, Dresden or Leipzig and the people have a special accent there which can be mis-leading in such cases

The prononciation was like "Bordo" with a soft P instead of a hard P.

The agent in the booking center asked twice - Bordeaux? she replied yes, yes, Bordo and was issued a ticket to Bordeaux.

Not sure if that qualifies for same name cities, phonetically for people from Saxonia it does.

If only the agent or the woman had used the name of the country in addition to the name of the city, the misunderstanding would have been avoided.

I have heard some non-native English speakers pronounce "Dallas" exactly like "Dulles" which could result in a similar problem.

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.

I think the agent did. The geographic knowledge of some people is not that great. On the explicit question: Bordeaux, France she might have said "nu" which is saxonian for yes.

Like one famous German soccer player, who intended to transfer to another club, once said.

(Inter) Milan or (Real) Madrid, does not matter, as long as it is Italy.
