Aiports Per City

Tue Dec 11, 2001 9:41 pm

Hi All,
Is there a city other than LA and NY that have 4 airports in their metropolitan area? I know San Francisco comes close, but Sacremento is too far away to be considered. Also, how many airports serve your metropolitan area? The answer for me in my hometown is 3, Houston: IAH, HOU, and EFD

London technically has 5 as you say.
LHR, LGW, LCY, STN, and LTN
But only City and Heathrow are technically in London (ie in a London borough).
The rest are all outside the M25 (and the metro area) but close enough to earn the prefix "London"

Yes, I have been to London many times, and whenever I fly to Heathrow, it's a lot nicer. Are you from London?

For London you might also add Biggin Hill/BQH
Berlin has only three active ones but used to have a fourth one - one for each sector: Tempelhof/THF/American - Tegel/TXL/French - Schoenefeld/SXF/Soviet - Gatow/GWW/British.
Moscow has 5: Sheremetyevo/SVO - Bykovo/BKA - Vnukovo/VKO - Domodedovo/DME - Zhukovskiy

Manston is also a "London" airport now. What about Farnborough or Northolt (military, but still London? )

I have a flat in central London but thats as far as it goes... I use it whenever I can.
Biggin Hill... now some firm started using BQH for services to Blackpool. There were big plans to solve the capacity problems in the SouthEast and develop BQH but they fell in a heap as they thought it would interfere too much with traffic for the other airports.

BCal, unfortunately Platinum 2000 have now folded so those services don't exist anymore.

Anyone care for London-Southend?

South Florida does have five - Miami/MIA, Ft. Lauderdale/FLL, Palm Beach/PBI, Opa Locka/OPF, and Downtown Miami/MPB. Though OPF's operation are largely charter and cargo, with very little scheduled services (mostly to the Caribbean), and MPB is just one scheduled carrier (OP).

Los Angeles has five commercial airports in its metro area (LAX, LGB, SNA, ONT and BUR) and New York has six (JFK, LGA, EWR, ISP, HPN and SWF).
