Largest Metropolitian Areas With 1 Airport In US

Hello everyone, this is my first "new topic" and first day as a member of a.net! I did a search of the above and could only come up with former topics that were about 5 years old so if this is a topic that has been discussed over and over please forgive me. According to the following link using data from the last census the 10 largest metro areas in the US are:
1 New York, NY
2 LA, CA
3 Chicago, IL
4 Houston, TX
5 Phoenix, Az
6 Philadelphia, Pa
7 San Antonio, Tx
8 San Diego, Ca
9 Dallas, Tx
10 San Jose, Ca

Using the above cities, one can see that at least half have more than one airport and some others have some very close by ( for example Philadelphia could have Atlantic City included ). I was just curious on everyones thoughts on why some very large cities have only 1 airport when it seems that population wise they could support a secondary airport. And, how smaller cities support more than 1 airport with much smaller populations. Thanks!

Well welcome! I must say one thing to you, and don't take this in a bad way, but post w/ caution.

Quoting C150Driver (Thread starter):
And, how smaller cities support more than 1 airport with much smaller populations.

Old military bases, general aviation facilities changed to commercial due to lack of space, it all depends. Some airports have been built to withstand a large amount of growth by design, and others not or didn't or don't have the necessary land open. For example, airports like HOU and MDW couldn't expand anymore to meet the cities needs, thus IAH and ORD were built. Like I said, it all depends on the situation.

Just for clarification that list is by city size not by metro area.

By metro it's...
New York
LA
Chicago
Dallas/FortWorth
Philadelphia
Houston

Thanks all for the welcomes, so by using the list you provided dont all these MSA's have one or more aiport with the exception of Atlanta? Also, what defines what airport serves what MSA... for example can San Fransico count Oakland and San Jose Intl airports? Thanks for all the help!

Of the ones listed above, PHL, MIA, ATL, and BOS are the largest. FLL is really close to MIA so you might include it as being another Miami airport. Now if you look at CSA, MIA and BOS will drop from the list as those CSAs have more than one airport.

ATL and PHL are the only two on that list that are served by only one airport, and even PHLs a little iffy as Wilmington is right across the river.

Along with ABE a bit north... if ABE was smart enough to market it to Philadelphians instead of being so adamantly independent from PHL with their pride.

ILG hardly counts as they barely have service (a few DL flights to ATL is all) and even that service is relatively new (~1 year I think is all).

And FYI, there is no river between Philadelphia and Wilmington -- it's just 25 miles downriver on the same side.

Does anyone see Williams Gateway airport in Mesa being a viable secondary airport to Phoenix Sky Harbor? I know that G4 has been suprised with thier load factors and there was rumors of Skybus maybe considering it someday before their demise however with the current cutbacks how does an airport try and market itself as a enticing alternative? Also, for all you Michigan folks do you consider FNT as an alternate to DTW?

In terms of CSAs, yes. Boston's CSA has PVD and MHT. However, its MSA does not. Manchester and Providence are two separate MSAs. I don't know what it is for Miami.

I'd argue that ABE, MDT, ILG (if service returns), RDG (if service returns) all can be considered alternatives to PHL.

If you live out in Westchester, Exton, Downingtown, Coatesville area MDT can be a very good, non-delay prone alternative to the mess that PHL can become.

That part of the valley is constantly growing and I bet when the 202 loop is finished it will be easy to get to for alot of people.
Wiliams definately has long runways and space to build up if it so chooses. Could be interesting to watch over the next 10 years.

The largest Metro area with only 1 major airport is Philadelphia, followed by Atlanta and then Boston. The Boston metro area has about 4.5 million people and only has Logan International Airport.

NYC, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, Miami and Washington, D.C. all have 2 airports within the metro areas.

Atlanta benefits the most as Harts field is the only major airport within a roughly 4 hour ride. Boston has PVD, MHT and BDL all within that range and even LGA (depending on how fast you drive) while Philadelphia has BWI, EWR within that range.

The Sacramento metro area has a rather large number of airports for a city its size (assuming we're not just talking about airports with commercial service). In our case this came about is the following way:

SAC was the original airport, and had commercial service up until the 1960s, I believe. The airport couldn't handle the first generation of jets, so the city built SMF to handle the city's airline traffic. SAC is now known as Sacramento Executive Airport and is now entirely a GA airport.
SMF, as explained above, handles all the commercial airline traffic.
MHR was formerly Mather Air Force Base. After the base closed it became a public airport in the mid 1990s, and now sees cargo flights from UPS and DHL, and GA traffic.
McClellan, like Mather, used to be an Air Force Base. It's now used by the CA Dept. of Forestry, the Coast Guard, the Sacramento Metro fire department, and GA traffic.

If going by MSA, NYC has actually has a lot more...EWR (Essex County, NJ), JFK (Queens County, NY), LGA (Queens County, NY), ISP (Suffolk County, NY), HPN (Westchester County, NY), SWF (Orange County, NY). Three major airports, two minor with scheduled service.

If you include airports that are able to accept scheduled service but don't there's at least one (TTN) that you can add. So you're looking at at least 6 airports with scheduled service in the NYC MSA.

WOW!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_metropolitan_area - They mention 4 major airports (EW,LGA, JFK, SWF) and the two minor ones would be HPN and ISP.



Always wonderers if this "last and final boarding call" is in fact THE last and final boarding call.

West Chester to MDT is 80 miles, that's not a very good alternative. Might as well lump in BWI as that's "only" 95 miles away from West Chester and at least BWI has direct flights to something other than a hub. ABE would be beneficial for people living north of Philly, but is served almost exclusively by regionals with very little mainline presence. If people were flocking there, service levels would improve.

Overall, isn't service to so many airports in close proximity exactly the type of thing that is causing so many financial problems with the airlines? Why add service to ILG and RDG if you already serve MDT, PHL and ABE? Cut back on the number of small time airports and you can cut back on the half-full RJs with sky high costs.

I actually did a study on this a while ago, and ATL, MSP, SAN and DEN were the largest metropolitan areas or "consolidated statistical areas" using a single airport. All others in the top 20 were using multiple airports or had viable airports where commercial service could reasonably establish (e.g. ILG, AZA, DET etc.). ["Reasonably" was my definition and included only airports that had commercial service in the recent past or were being built up to take commercial service in the near future.] One could stretch to include Athens, Rochester, and Colorado Springs as options for ATL, MSP, and DEN, respectively, all less than 80 miles driving, though not within the CSMAs. COS is easily the largest of those, and has lightly marketed itself as a DEN alternative to at least part of the Denver's metro area. SAN is a weird one, even its one airport seems "underfit" for its metro area, it bleeds a lot of commerce to SNA, and TIJ is different can of worms.

What would be a better measure of a metro area for this purpose is an "airline metropolitan market", and Census metropolitan regions don't necessarily represent this well. I've not come across statistics for an "airline metropolitan market", at least easily. It would have to do with catchment for reasonable drive time, and would be complicated by significant overlaps between smaller metro areas. For lack of anything better, Consolidated Statistical Areas are the best substitute, that way you can talk about Los Angeles-Riverside-Santa Ana or Boston-Manchester or Balitmore-Washington. It's a good transportation geography question at any rate.
