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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

There are no direct flights between my home airport (MHK) and New York, but being named Manhattan and working at the airport - yeah, it happens twice a year or so, someone will get off the plane in Kansas thinking they're going to grab a cab to Times Square.

Nope.

We're forced to sell them a new ticket to NYC, and what's worse is the only folks daft enough to make such a mistake are almost always foreign tourists or booked by foreign travel agencies.

Funny you should mention that ...

We used to have a flight AC606 to St. John's, leave YYZ at exactly the same time as AC666 to Saint John. One morning the B737 going to YYT was parked on the open ramp, beside the F28 which was going to YSJ. The passengers had to walk down the same set of stairs to get to either plane, at the same time. Some times you just have to shake your head!

One of the things that got me thinking about a thread like this some time ago was when I read that Portland, OR was almost named Boston, OR. The story goes that of the people who settled Portland, some were from Portland, ME, and some from Boston, MA, and the name of the new city out west came down to either of those. If the city had been called Boston, then you could very easily have Boston-Boston flights.

Then there's the city across the river from Portland - Vancouver, WA - which has a direct train service to Vancouver, BC.

Someone who works in MSP told a story of a Twenty-something and her mother who came up to him looking for the gate for Honolulu after arriving from PHL. The woman's boyfriend had bought them tickets to visit him there, and they were a little confused because the flight numbers didn't match up to the departure board.

Turns out, the boyfriend booked them to HON. Whoops.

I've seen people mix up MRY and MTY, usually people wanting to go to MTY and booking MRY. Don't think there will be any nonstop (or even direct) service between them, though. Another mistake I've personally seen is someone booked into YYZ... mistaking the City of Ontario for the Province of Ontario.

This is probably quite a stretch as well (but that is what makes these topics fun) but the Portland metro area is officially called the Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro OR-WA Metropolitan Statistical Area. If Vancouver, WA gets much bigger (already Washingtons 4th largest city after Seattle, Spokane, and Tacoma and the largest city in the Portland metro area outside of Portland with 164,000 people), I could see PDX someday being marketed as Portland-Vancouver International Airport. This seems more likely to happen when the second city in a metro area is in a different state or even country than the anchor city (I.e. Fargo-Moorhead, Detroit-Windsor, Baltimore-Washington DC, etc). Should PDX become the Portland Vancouver international airport, Jazz would have a Vancouver to Vancouver flight.

Sorry hOmsAR, just saw that you had the same idea.

If you go back to the ‘70s and early ‘80s, PV (Eastern Provincial) had a ‘737 routing YUL-YSJ-YHZ-YQY-YJT-YQX-YYT…….a real milk-run!

AC/TCA operated that route with Viscounts in the 1950s/60s, including the possibility of Saint John - St. John's.

There are no direct flights between my home airport (MHK) and New York, but being named Manhattan and working at the airport - yeah, it happens twice a year or so, someone will get off the plane in Kansas thinking they're going to grab a cab to Times Square.

As I understand it, there's a steady trickle of passengers arriving in the wrong Portland (MN vs. OR).

When Joannes Rutten stepped off a plane with his grandson at Sydney airport after a long flight from Amsterdam, he thought they were in for the Australian holiday of a lifetime.

But the Dutch pair were shocked to learn that they had just touched down in the rather chillier climate of Sydney, Canada - more than 17,000 miles away from their intended destination.

*17,000* miles? They had an off-planet destination?

They have two stations on that line, Newark Penn Station and New York Penn Station.

There's more Penn Stations on that line than that... Baltimore Penn Station is not too much further, not to mention the several Union Stations.

I could see PDX someday being marketed as Portland-Vancouver International Airport.

I doubt that will happen, as Vancouver Wa does not wish to pay for part of a light rail link to Vancouver, let alone anything towards an airport that is just across the river that they can use for free, Portland isn't going to give it away for free.

I doubt that we will ever see a flight from EGTO, Rochester Airport - see guide and aerial photo here:

http://www.rochester-airport.co.uk/Essential%20Guide%20to%20EGTO.pdf

to ROC. Nevertheless some 30 years ago my then boss hired a new secretary soon after he had booked to fly LHR-JFK-ROC on a business trip. He asked her to book him a hire car at "Rochester Airport" at his scheduled arrival time . In his absence she came to me because she had fortunately discovered that there were no scheduled flights to EGTO and was a bit mystified as to why or how her boss was getting there. With our corporate HQ at Rochester, NY I was able to help her out.

This raises the question as to whether there has ever been a service between ROC and RKT?

As an aside EGTO has quite a long history. It dates back to 1933. Its main claim to fame is as the home of the RAF's first four engined bomber, the Short Brothers S-29 Sterling. It was first rolled out at EGTO in August 1940.

I don't think there has been a direct flight between Bend, and North Bend, both in Oregon.....but Alaska/Horizon has flown to both from SEA.

There is a Philadelphia in Greece, which is a suburb of Athens......however in the opposite direction(northwest)from the airport.........so not even close to the JFK/Jamaica deal. And for you New Yorkers, Athens happens to be in the province of Attica(!!).....and one of the largest movie houses is "Thetro Apollon Attikis"(the Apollo Theater of Attica)......plus Ithaca has no airport.

I'm willing to bet, though there is seaplane service from San Juan , PR, to St. John, U.S.V.I.....

CargoJet is sometimes flying between Hamilton/Ontario and Hamilton/Bermuda. This is most of the times a positioning flight
(CJT is operating between Hamilton/Bermuda and Newark), but the flight is on the various flight-trackers and should qualify therefore.

"Any flights between two cities with same name?"

"Well, back in 1933, ABC Airways flew from Frankfurt to France, and although one is a city and one is a country, they both start with FRA-"

And back to the subject, Santa Cruz Bolivia VVI and St Croix STX U.S. Virgin Islands qualify as having the same name?
Does US have ever flown CLT-STT? STT is located in a city name Charlotte too.

What does Rochester, NY have to do with Ras al-Khaimah, United Arab Emirates (RKT)? Or do you mean RST (Rochester, Minnesota)? I'm sure NW passengers, at least, have occasionally wound up at the wrong Rochester due to NW serving both for years.

There may be a possibility of seeing a regional airline operating between GSP and PGV. Not direct between the two, but maybe a GSP-CLT-PGV routing, like how there is currently a route (with one flight number) where the single aircraft operates GSP-CLT-BHM.

Nothing non-stop for sure. Unfortunately Bend is served from the Redmond airport. JT used to fly to both Redmond and Bend at one time back in 1979, I do not think Bend had any direct flights to North Bend,

Not exactly what you are looking for, but I remember when American had a daily B-707 from Boston to Dulles Airport which continued on to Dallas Love Field. We were going to the air show being held at Dulles Airport (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transpo_%2772) and on boarding, the lead FA welcomed us aboard "American Flight XXX, service to Dulles and Dallas". Then she kind of got the giggles at the sound of that.

A bit off topic...
Back when I started as a buck new dispatcher I picked up the phone for my pod-mate. It was a pilot flying into MSP. He asked about the weather in MSP then asked me how about the weather in Rochester? I pulled up the weather at ROC and gave him a briefing not realizing he was asking about his listed alternate, RST!
Thank goodness he didn't divert...
