Some of the smallest international destinations served from the USA are flown by Continental Micronesia on their island hoping flights from HNL and Guam. These are some of the smallest and least populated islands in the world receiving scheduled air service and some are USA territories while other destinations of Continental Micronesia are not.

I think you should exclude Canada and Mexico from your list, because there are some that I here in Europe would have never heard about. But because I am interested in aviation..

In this case I would clearly guess Shannon as the smallest intercontinental City from the USA.

Venice (VCE) 240,000

In Latin America and the Caribbean:
Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR) 33,000
Providenciales (PLS) There are only 20,000 in the entire country of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

LOT servers Krakow, Poland from ORD. I'm not familiar with Poland though so their population may be larger than I am envisioning.

Oh..I thought UA was the only US carrier that served Oz. Does CO operate to Oz also?

Krakow is the second biggest city in Poland, and also the second most important. It also tends to be a bit better tourist destination than Warsaw. Also, a good deal of US based Poles are from Krakow based families. According to Krakow-info.com, the population of Krakow proper is 800,000, the metro area is 1.5 million and within 62 square miles there are 9 million people (which is more the size of a metro area in the US). To compare, the city LOT flies to Krakow from, Chicago, has a metro area population of 8.5 million (and that includes areas as far as Kenosha, WI).

That is bigger than Nice or Lyon, which both have non-stop service to the US.

While not the smallest place, I would venture to say that Tahiti, with a population of just about 250,000 (16% in Pappete) would be the small place with the most capacity, as they get 10X per week A343 LAX-PPT with TN, 3X per week AF 744 LAX-PPT and 3X 763 per week LAX-PPT with NZ. That is a lot of capacity to a little place.

I don't know if this fits the description, but COEX flies to destinations in Mexico that are pretty small...Toluca, Saltillo, Leon, etc. All of them very small markets, and probably the smallest.


Flying is a privilege!

Yep, nice catch.

>I don't know if this fits the description, but COEX flies to destinations in Mexico that are pretty small...Toluca, Saltillo, Leon, etc. All of them very small markets, and probably the smallest.<

Well, Toluca has around 600,000 people. Leon is a major city in mexico and has around 2 million people. Saltillo also has around 600,000. None of these are small markets. Also, given the number of Mexicans in Texas (where COex flies the routes from) and the number in California (Where everyone flies from), the markets are even bigger. Also, Mexico was expressly left out of this. So was Canada, though you can fly non-stop from Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada (population 22,000) to Juneau, Alaska (population 35,000), now that is a small market route.

AQ flies to Majuro (25,000 people) and Kwajalein (10,000 people) in the Marshall Islands, and Pago Pago, American Samoa (58,000 people).

HA serves Pago Pago and Tahiti.

Those have to be some of the smallest international destinations served.

Aloha, American Samoa has that name for a reason. It is in the United States, and is not an international flight. Majuro and Kwajalein are international flights, as the Marshall Islands have been independant since the last decade (then again, they still use US currency).

Shannon is a very small place indeed, if that helps resolve the problem, with less than 10,000 population. Even nearby Limerick City is only c 70,000.

Indeed, until the early 1960's, there was no Shannon town at all.

Dstc47 is correct; most airports are built to serve a city; Shannon town was built around the airport; the population certainly isn't more than four figures - maybe 5-6,000, although Limerick is about 20 miles away. Mind you, most people in Clare don't like to be reminded of this!
