Mike Boyd has a short trivia answer this morning on his Aviation Hot Flash mentioning an interesting fact about Fresno (FAT).

Fresno is the only US airport where the #1 O&D route is an international route (excludes small airports with fewer than 200,000 total annual passengers).

Top O&D routes at FAT in 2011 per The Boyd Group:
1) GDL
2) LAS
3) SEA
4) PHX
5) DFW

More, including # of passengers in those markets, at

I used FAT last week for my first time on the Delta SLC-FAT-SLC route.

Wasn't expecting much but pleasantly surprised by the facility. Very nice new terminal, etc. and once the parallel runway work is complete it should be even better.

I always enjoy the mellow atmosphere at these small regional airports.

The thing with ethnic flights such as FAT-GDL is that they are highly seasonal.

Here's the first FAT-HNL flight report on Fresno's local news:
