Airports That Have Only One Intercontinental Flt?

Wed Sep 03, 2003 10:20 pm

There are some airports which usually have only domestic or continental traffic, but then there is ONE flight there going intercont. Which ones?

I can think of SAN, which had (or had?) BA going to London, but the rest was all Americas (USA, Canada, MEX).

Also Bangalore (Lufthansa), Venice (delta), Nice (Delta).

Any others?

RDU (AA to LGW) and CLE (CO to LGW) are two possibilities.

Thinking of it, what about PDX? There is the LH flight, what about those trans-pacific services that existed (DL to NRT I think)?

I believe the daily flight FOR-LIS and LIS-FOR on TP is the only intercontinental at FOR.

Since when do you not count Mexico and Canada as International? Transatlantic might have been a better title.

The title says INTERCONTINENTAL.

Nice (Delta)

Actually Nice also has Emirates which flies from Dubai (via Rome) and Air Transat from Montreal Mirabel.

If you flew from NYC to MEX that would be intercontinental.

Mexico is geographically part of North America. Note the name of the trade agreement it has with the United States and Canada - the North American Free Trade Agreement (or is it Association?), better known as NAFTA.

Until recently, LYS had only one scheduled intercontinental flight; DL to ATL. They also had the occasional transatlantic charter.
Now they don't have any scheduled transatlantic traffic at all  Sad

Not everyone might agree with my definition, but here's what I had in mind when saying intercont, i.e. these are the continents:
- North/Central America & Carribean
- South America
- Asia
- Australia/Oceania
- Europe

You may have different definitions, but for the sake of this thread this is more or less what I had in mind

Mozart,

Yours is a very strict definition. I think you should add to it a minimum flight time, as very short flights between Venezuela and Aruba, or Colombia and Panama, or Spain and Morocco, or domestic flights inside Russia, Egypt or Turkey would qualify as "intercontinental"

 Big thumbs up

In addition Nice also has service on:

CTS - YYZ (as well as YMX already mentioned)
SV - JED (seasonal)
AT/FU/AF - CMN (Morocco)
FU/AH - ALG/CZL/ORN (Algeria)
AF/TU - TUN (Tunisia)
TK - IST (Turkey)

Not very long distance most of them, but certainly intercontinental.

I think that what Mozart meant by transcontinental was transatlantic or long-distance flights...flights that last for more than four hours.

INTERcontinental would mean flights between two different continents.
INTRAcontinental would mean flights within the same continent.

Krakow also has LOT service to Newark on Saturdays and JFK on Thursdays.

FLL has only service to Bogota, Colombia. However, since Aces liquidated, they currently do not have that service. Avianca has DOT approval to now operate to FLL with a 757-200, but they now have to wait for the Colombian government to redistribute the route because AeroRepublica would like to have it too. I believe the redistribution of Aces' routes is on 20 September.

I think LYS now has service to Réunion several times a week, via Air Bourbon. Not positive, though.

SJC - AA to AA), Japan">NRT, any other long-haul flights there.

They also have service to Hawaii, but I don't know if that is an 'intercontinental' flight, it has the distance , but maybe not the destination.

MEX doesn't count, and the CDG flight looks discontinued, nor do I know if we are counting cargo/freight operations.

Ontario Airport - ONT used to have an Air Canada flight... Ontario to Ontario. That was around 1999 or 2000 or so. Not anymore, though.

Grand Cayman's flights to London Heathrow stop in Nassau.

Montevideo's flights to Madrid stop in Rio de Janeiro. Montevideo also has AA and UA with same-plane service to Miami, but both stop in Buenos Aires.

VCE has the daily DL flight to JFK as mentioned (5x weekly in the winter schedule), plus in summer we often get Skyservice A330s from YYZ, sometimes direct, sometimes via FCO.
Aside from that there has also been an ATA 757 coming in from Indianapolis non-stop a while ago, but that was a one-off charter.
World MD-11s come in from JFK every once in a while.
2 years ago Lauda also operated the first non-stop service from Tokyo to VCE with a 767, and I have seen Volare A330s/Air Europe 777s come in non-stop from Fukuoka on a couple of occasions.

I still believe that VCE could support a scheduled non-stop service to Japan, there is such a huge tourism business! JAL? ANA? Anyone? Big grin

It is sad but "my" airport GOT does not have more than one intercontinental scheduled passenger flight per week. It is an IR flight to THR and they use the only passenger service 747 regularly visiting GOT.

My home airport CCU:

BA is the only carrier operating intercontinental pax services from there with B744s. KL is also there, but with a stop in DEL before winging off to AMS.

Trvlr, your are absolutely right, LYS is served three times weekly nonstop from Saint-Denis/RUN by an Air Bourbon A343.

Many small French Airports like CFE (Clermont-Ferrand) have nonstop flights to/from Canada, YUL & YQB, operated mostly by Air Transat during the summer season, which is logical as many "French-Canadian" come to these regions of France to discover the origins of their families.

I guess we can add BRS to the list, we used to have one service to YYZ in the summer served by Royal Airlines, and now we have a winter flight to the Gambia every saturday, Operated by Britannia I think.
