Airports shared between two metropolitan areas

Sun Aug 13, 2017 12:00 am

What does anyone here think about building airports shared between two major metropolitan areas? I have heard about a pipe dream idea of building a shared airport for both Austin and San Antonio either in San Marcos or New Braunfels, and I think some have suggested building an airport near Casa Grande or Eloy to be shared between Phoenix and Tucson.

I think in order to make such airports work, there would have to be rail access from the airport and the two metropolitan areas.

An airport in San Marcos to split the difference between SAT and AUS makes waaaaay more sense than Casa Grande between PHX and TUS...but neither will happen...ever.

I think an airport between Dallas and Fort Worth, TX would be a good idea.

No to AUS-SAT/Central Texas International from me, as it is being conceived.Not to point fingers, but it's mostly supported by folks closer or in San Antonio who want more accessible direct flights since they lack compared to Austin, but that's understandable. Plus the distance is just too large between the two cities; about 90 miles between both city centers? Aren't Dallas and Fort Worth about 30 or so miles apart? Few if any Austinites would want to drive that far to fly when AUS is already convenient and doing well in terms of routes (it'd be an hour+ of a commute for me from the North!).

If anything, such an airport should be more of a reliever airport or one of those LCC airports like SFB to MCO, or basically just a secondary airport to the region like Waco's regional airport, rather than DFW 2.0. It's a growing region and if AUS gets too busy in the long-run (unlikely in our lifetimes, but possible since Austin is always lagging in terms of infrastructure), it may be good to relieve the airport with another airport.

That last part was my suggestion; not a major airport, but a regional secondary airport for the gap between the two cities, sort of like the MOM :p . However it may not be needed in the near future.

Is there a lot of leakage into AUS from Waco/Killeen? I assume it given the distance; AUS might be already pulling well from an adjacent market as well.

BWI is the probably the best example of an existing airport shared between 2 different MSAs.

What about an airport serving New Jersey and New York City.

Or maybe one serving Baltimore and Washington....

That's 2 cities but in the same metropolitan area. Similar like DFW.

OP was looking for 2 metropolitan areas served by one airport. BWI and BDL seem like good examples.

Technically Raleigh and Durham are separate metros but RDU serves both.

Akron and Canton are also two served by CAK. NE Ohio has CLE, CAK and YNG. Not that YNG gets much service except for Allegiant, but it's interesting that the region has all so many airports. Meanwhile Atlanta region has just ATL and no alternate airport to serve the north side of the market.

Fargo (MSA pop 220k) and Grand Forks, North Dakota (MSA 100k) are about one hour apart from each other, with a lot of pax leakage rom GFK to FAR. IMO, only one airport is needed to serve these two metros, but due to a large flight school at GFK they both exist.

like MFM and ZUH airports? ZUH is the airport for Zhuhai but it is further away from Zhuhai city center than MFM, while ZUH is closer to the city of macau than is to the city of Zhuhai.

Dayton International Airport serves more than the Dayton Metropolitan Statistical Area since Dayton International Airport also serves the Springfield, OH Metropolitan Statistical Area and the northernmost part of the Cincinnati Metropolitan Statistical Area. Dayton International Airport used to serve as a 2nd airport for Cincinnati until recently, but this has changed with Allegiant and Frontier significantly expanding at CVG during the last 3 years, with Southwest discontinuing service out of Dayton back on June 3rd of this year, with Southwest starting service out of Cincinnati back on June 4th of this year, and with Frontier starting nonstop service to LGA from Cincinnati back in April of this year.

MSY serves as the airport for both the Houma/Thibodaux,and Hammond metropolitan areas. Houma and Hammond do not have a commercial service airport. MSY also serves as the defacto airport for the Baton Rouge and Gulfport/Biloxi metro areas even though they have commercial service airports with very limited flight options.

2016 Populations and driving distance to MSY:

New Orleans, LA Metro = 1,268,883
Baton Rouge, LA Metro = 835,175 (71 miles on I-10 from downtown Baton Rouge to MSY)
Gulfport/Biloxi, MS Metro = 391,266 (89 miles on I-10 from downtown Gulfport to MSY)
Houma/Thibodaux, LA Metro = 211,525 (44 miles on US 90/I-310 from downtown Houma to MSY)
Hammond, LA Metro = 130,710 (50 miles on I-55/I-10 from downtown Hammond to MSY)

For perspective, from my house in a suburb of New Orleans called Slidell, LA it is 50 miles to MSY taking I-10 according to our friend Google. It's actually farther than the drive from Houma and the same distance as Hammond. Really crazy.

Before the Second World War they actually did - an airport in Grangemouth, used for training during WWII and now mainly occupied by an oil refinery.
During the war airport development for military purposes led to an embarrassment of airports in the central belt of Scotland closer to both cities.

Vienna - Bratislava perhaps. Two major cities only a slight distance apart. Vienna airport is already somewhat in the middle between them, but still Bratislava has it's own airport at the other side of the city.

Krakow and Katowice are another example of two cities very close to each other that each got their own airport.

For so many years you've had people talking about building an airport between BUF and ROC around Batavia area (GVQ). Rumors will die out for a few years, them some politician will float the idea, the public argues about it, and like always it ends up completely dead.

If both cities didn't have well established airports, I'd say why not give it a shot. The main obstacle being the airport would be a minimum 30min away from either city, but hey, why not fantasize.

Good idea, but much too late for that!... Both metropoles have built (or will be building) very high capacity airports. I guess you haven't heard about DWC (or the El Maktuum Airport) that is being expanded and is rumored to reach a capacity of 200 million if and ever all phases will be completed.

DTW is an obvious example, as the only airport serving both the Detroit and Ann Arbor metro areas.

It also serves most of the Toledo metro area O-D too, but since Toledo does have their own very small airport, Toledo is not included.

Leeds and Bradford are both in the same metro area (conurbation) though. This thread is about airports serving more than one conurbation.

I've always thought a large airport near Wakefield - so midway between the Leeds and Sheffield metro areas could be a serious rival to Manchester.

I've been thinking about the same thing. There are currently three airports in the Central Belt (including Prestwick). Replacing EDI and GLA with a new airport and a modern rail link sounds like a good idea.

Manchester and Liverpool as well. Like in some other examples, we can think that in a distant future these airports will need to be built to cope with increased traffic, the current airports being saturated and not capable of expanding. But will there be enough convenient land available?

Hartford and Springfield are technically separate metropolitan areas from each other:

AFAIK, Springfleld, MA has even different local TV stations from Hartford, CT, and on cable, Hartford is evenly split in NY and Boston professional sports right territory, while Springfield is solely Boston professional sports rights territory.

Technically, Winston-Salem and Greensboro/High Point, NC are two different metro areas, both served by GSO. Same with GSP, which serves both Greenville, SC and Spartanburg. There are probably several other examples in the U.S. of airports that technically serve two or more defined metro areas.

The one example I've never completely understood is the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas, which is served by three commercial airports. I know they all theoretically serve a different role, but that seems like a lot of redundancy.

Sikorsky Airport basically lies in between Bridgeport and New Haven. No scheduled service, though, probably due to the proximity of the NYC airports, and to a lesser extent, BDL.

But, they (and by extension, New Haven) kind of already do... they're called BDL and JFK. The only flight leaving Tweed is PHL, 3x/weekday (2x/day on weekends). With any runway extension being obstructed by the Town of East Haven, good luck with getting any additional scheduled service.

I guess to add to the debate about BDL... even though it's called Hartford/Springfield, a significant number of people from Southern CT use the airport, so one can argue that it serves at least 3 metro areas.

FWIW, VCP probably counts as serving two distinct metropolitan areas (Campinas and São Paulo).

I would argue that ABQ serves both Albuquerque and Santa Fe well, even though SAF is beginning to have an increase in carrier traffic now.

If we're talking "metropolitans", Rio Rancho, the second largest city in New Mexico, is adjacent to Albuquerque, and does not have their own airport.

like MFM and ZUH airports? ZUH is the airport for Zhuhai but it is further away from Zhuhai city center than MFM, while ZUH is closer to the city of macau than is to the city of Zhuhai.


It's still two airports, two metro areas, that's separate by a border crossing. (Of course, most people in Macau actually use HKG for longer haul flight anyway).

Technically, Winston-Salem and Greensboro/High Point, NC are two different metro areas, both served by GSO. Same with GSP, which serves both Greenville, SC and Spartanburg. There are probably several other examples in the U.S. of airports that technically serve two or more defined metro areas.


To certain extent, yes, GSO, GSP, and RDU are all airports that serves two "metropolitan" area (MSA). But they're still within the same CSA and quite frankly, are just not that far apart.

If you are going with strict "metro" area, there's also Tokyo and Yokohama (And places like Saitama and Chiba, since they're sort-of separate "metro" area but can also be considered suburbs) sharing HND and NRT. Then go to Kinki region and you have Osaka/Kobe/Kyoto sharing ITM, UKB, and KIX. I can somewhat argue Seoul and Incheon also, although they're more like Minneapolis/St Paul than Dallas/Fort Worth.
