Airline Service Between Cities With Same Name

I was just wondering if there is any non-stop airline service between two cities with the same name (example London, ON and London, UK) I cannot think of any.

I know for a short time American Eagle operated a flight between Springfield,IL and Springfield,MO. Continued to ORD and DFW after the Springfield stops. Only one I can think of. This was in say mid-late 90s.

On 15Aug (one day only, for some unknown reason), USAirways express (US2250) is running a 1-stop between CHS (Charleston, SC) and CRW (Charleston, WV). The flight stops in Charlotte.

PWM-PDX

Maybe as a direct, but never non-stop. PDX is closer to downtown Vancouver, WA then to downtown Portland, though, and we've got service to YVR.

Has there ever been any kind of service to a city in the provence of Ontario to ONT?



When in doubt, one B pump off

I can't think of any such cases off the top of my head. Oddly enough, the scenario where New York, once having the name "New Amsterdam", was the only thing I could think of that otherwise may have complicated existing JFK-AMS runs.

Why they changed it, I can't say...I guess they liked it better that way.  Wink

Well for many years Houston had what IIRC was the only non-stop itra-city fixed wing flights in the USA

There were several flights from Houston HOU Hobby to Houston IAH intercontinental, and for even more years Houston EFD Ellington Field to IAH (this just ended a few years ago).

CO 's EFD-IAH flight was quite popular due to the free parking and extra 500 miles per segment (and it was a free tag on).

All three airports are in the Houston city limits Big grin

Granted this is not exactly what the OP had in mind I am sure but I figured I'd post it  Wink

A couple of summers ago, Air Canada did fly from Ontario, California (ONT) to Toronto, Ontario (YYZ). Not technically the same city names, but it was a flight from Ontario to Ontario!


ONT - Southern California's Ontario!

AC serves Sydney, Australia and Sydney, Nova Scotia (YQY), but it will be a long time before there's nonstop service between the two. The airport serving Victoria, B.C. is also in the suburb of Sidney (spelled with an "i").

Until AC dropped MAN, they served two Sydneys, two Londons and two Manchesters.

AC also serves St. John's, Newfoundland (YYT), Saint John, New Brunswick (YSJ), and Fort St. John, B.C. (YXJ).

Nobody in PWM has a non-stop to PDX, nor would anyone have a direct...PWM's so largely Express and anything after PWM would be Mainline so the flight number would change.

CHS and CRW would be one, that certainly as a direct, would be possible.

well you could fly from Columbus, OH to Columbus, GA on DL via ATL

Does DL still fly to Jacksonville, NC? If so you could go from there to Jacksonville, FL via DL in ATL.

What about Columbia, MO to Columbia, SC on DL via MEM?

Do similar-sounding cities, like Greensboro and Greenville, count?

Continental Lite once flew GSO to GSP nonstop... Gordon Bethune joked about it as the "Greensboro to Greenville route" in the book From Worst To First. (The route didn't last long under his watch.)

Also, AmericanConnection once flew to both LAF and LFT from STL. Naturally, there were quite a few screwups. (Eagle still serves LFT from DFW. As for LAF, it's another victim, along with BMG and HUF, of cheap IND fares.)

I'll throw in the MHT-BOS flights Colgan was operating until recently. MHT is called Manchester-Boston regional airport, so it's similar.

Here's the closest I can think of: CAE to IAD/DCA. Columbia to the District of Columbia!

Very similar, in fact the distance could be less than Houston Ellington to Houston Bush. Only difference is the fact both EFD and IAH are in Houston city limits.

How about any flights "old" cities to "new" cities like York, England to New York  Smile or Orleans to New Orleans???

YYZ must be pretty much up there. AC offers 7 flights to YXU daily and 4 flights to LHR daily. Not to mention that it would be theoretically possible to connect to other airlines too...
