The list of airports with 1-5 daily passenger flights will go on and on and on and on...Ft. Pierce, Florida is as low as you can get: one weekly scheduled passenger flight, a Saturday service to Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood on Florida Coastal Airlines.

The worst valued airport has to be YMX. Picture this: this airport cost 500 millions $cdn to built, back in 1975. In today's dollars, that would be the equivalent of what, 5 billions? The airport now has 2 runways 3600 meters each, but has space to build 4 more. And it's a beauty.
Unfortunately, du to painful mismanagement and lack of vision, this airport, which was supposed to handle 25 millions pax this year, gets no more than 2-3 pax flights a day, mostly served by TS. A real shame...

I agree with you Qb001. But the airport still handle at least 1 million pax a year. The 2-3 departures a day are during very low season. YQB handles half of it. I agree that compared to the 25 million pax predicted.....today's numbers are nothing. There are still days during the high season that YMX handles 20+ flights (Air Transat, SkyService, Corsair and soon My Travel) to European and/or to Carribbean destinations.
