Any Flights Between Two Cities With Same Name?

Are there (or have there ever been) scheduled airline flights between two cities with the same name? For example, Manchester, NH to Manchester, UK, or Springfield, IL to Springfield, MO.

I'm not counting flights between two airports in the same city (I know there have been a few of those over the years), but separate cities that happen to have the same name.


I was raised by a cup of coffee.

None that I can think of, but if it comes to playing games like this, see if you can come up with flights between airports that have the same letters in their respective airport codes, e.g. OAK - KOA.

Somehow, despite the similarities in city names, I don't think that Eagle's FWA (Fort Wayne, IN) to DFW (Dallas/Fort Worth, TX) counts.

Missed it by that much...

It's possible - perhaps even likely - that TW or OZ flew SPI-SGF with one or more intermediate stops for some period of time in the 1970s or 1980s, and similarly it's possible that PI flew CRW-CHS with one or more intermediate stops in the same time period.

The only one that would sound realistic would be Santiago, Cuba to Santiago, Chile......but I'm not sure if that even exists.

SCU-STI is more likely to ever be flown commercially than a SCU/STI-SCL. Currently there might be passengers flying CM SCL-STI to spend holidays in POP. Chilean-Spanish would love a SCL-SCQ. To make things more weird with the cities named Santiago, Cali (CLO) official name is Santiago de Cali.
SJC-SJO might actually have some O/D due to Intel operations in Costa Rica. Is SJC-SJD currently flown by any airline?
Somebody from San Antonio Venezuela SVZ has to use CUC to fly CM/UA to SAT.



I'm not on CM's payroll.

That one is probably more likely than CHS-CRW or SPI-SGF to have seen a nonstop on a milk run. Aside from TUP (and Corinth, if it had service way back when), there's not a whole lot between JAN and MKL.

OZ did have a flight via STL at some point, don't ask me what year but my Mom worked in OZ reservations and recalls a situation where a passenger was flying ORD-PIA-SPI and slept thru to SGF. OZ got him/her back to SPI later that day but direct flights were dropped soon after, partially due to that occurrence.



Next up, STL-ATL-MSY-ATL-STL

Neat question.

There are several cities named Columbus...?

And were there ever perhaps helicopter shuttles between airports like Narita/Haneda, Moscow's two airports . . . That sort of thing.

The thread starter said he wanted to exclude those types of services of which there were a few over the years.

There was helicopter service LHR-LGW for a few years in the late '70s and early '80s, a joint venture between the airports' operator BAA, British Airways and British Caledonian. The S-61 used had the appropriate registration G-LINK.

I have no idea what they were thinking, but yes AA/Executive did route ATRs on a daily rotation DFW-SGF-SPI-ORD. People would get off in the wrong Springfield all the time.

CO use to fly 5 flights a day from Houston to Houston. Same city/same name. Does that count? EFD-IAH I think for one city to have passenger service between two of it's airports ia quite a feat.

On a slightly off-topic note, I've always wondered how many people who don't speak great English get screwed when they take the train into Manhattan from EWR. They have two stations on that line, Newark Penn Station and New York Penn Station. I can't possibly see how that would confuse travellers.
