I was about to rant that Southend isn't a London airport, but then I remembered the distance between Luton, Gatwick and Stansted to the capital. What defines an airport as belonging to a particular city?

London Southend...sounds weird when I say that to myself.

Oh, and Londonderry is in Northern Ireland. Even the vast conurbation that London seems to encompass doesn't stretch that far !

If you're gonna add Southend as a London airport - you might as well add Manston in Kent.

Tupolev154B2: Chicago-Midway is MDW, not MDY

Euroflyer: you probably did a keyword "pattern" search which pulled up anything that included the letter pattern "london".

Gee, if you want to include sectional airports and 50nm airports, then Cleveland is pretty good too... Unless you're only counting those that have commercial passenger service.

*Hopkins International (CLE)
Burke Lakefront (BKL)
Cuyahoga County (CGF)
Lost Nation Municipal (LNN)
Lorain County (LPR)
Akron-Fulton (AKR)
*Akron-Canton Regional (CAK)
Kent State University (1G3)
Medina Municipal (1G5)
Geauga County (7G8)
*Youngstown-Warren Regional (YNG)

and if you count our heliports... four more just within 10 mi of downtown Cleveland. (We have a dense network of hospital trauma centres).

Now, if you include heliports, New York has got everyone beat. Here's the list I have, just in New York City:

JFK -- New York, NY -- John F Kennedy International Airport
LGA -- New York, NY -- La Guardia Airport
FLU -- New York/Flushing/, NY -- Flushing Airport
6N4 -- New York, NY -- Pan Am Metroport Heliport
JRB -- New York, NY -- Port Auth-Downtown-Manhattan/Wall St Heliport
6N5 -- New York, NY -- East 34th Street Heliport
JRA -- New York, NY -- West 30th St. Heliport
6N7 -- New York, NY -- New York Skyports Inc Seaplane Base
NOP -- New York, NY -- NYPD Air Operations (Floyd Bennett Field) Heliport
6N6 -- New York, NY -- Evers Seaplane Base
8NY6 -- New York, NY -- 111 Wall Street Heliport
NK39 -- New York, NY -- One Police Plaza Heliport
NY93 -- New York, NY -- Charles Poletti Heliport

If you consider NY Metro airports:

EWR -- Newark, NJ -- Newark International Airport
HPN -- White Plains, NY -- Westchester County Airport
ISP -- Islip, NY -- Long Island MacArthur Airport
SWF -- Newburgh, NY -- Stewart International Airport

This is getting silly now - weren't we talking of major Airports (not Helipads or roof-gardens or indeed any old street that was long enough)

Lainhol:
Please, please, please, please, PLEASE never consider San Diego a part of Los Angeles.

That's like saying, "that beautiful Porsche 911 is part of the Mercury station wagon in front of it."

San Diego is NOT a part of LA. San Diego County is approximately 100 miles long, and it is separated from Los Angeles County by Orange County.

Cambell airstrip
Sand Lake
Elemendorf Air Force Base
Merrill Field
Bryant AAF
Birchwood Airport

I should throw in the Palmer and Wasilla Airports plus some of the floatplane bases around there but they aren't really considered part of Anchorage.

An interesting but bewildering topic. BTW, only part of Long Island lies in the NYC metro area (namely Queens, which contains JFK and LGA). I am not sure, however, where Bronx and Brooklyn lie.

Over here in the Caribbean few cities (or even countries for that matter) have more than one airport serving them. Examples include San Juan (Isla Grande for local flights and Isla Verde Intl.) and Kingston (Tinson Pen Aerodrome and Sir Norman Manley Intl).

The problem with a topic like this is that some cities may be served by airports owned by another city far away but which offer better connections to, say, international passengers and with which good road and rail links exist. For example, consider BWI Airport. It is Baltimore's airport but includes Washington in its name and lies almost an hour away from the latter. Yet it still ostensibly serves Washington. Closer to home, Montego Bay (MBJ) is 3 hours' drive from Kingston in Jamaica but many more US carriers fly there as it is a major tourist resort. These flights are also patronized by locals coming home to Kingston so again the capital is served by these disparate facilities.

So, all things being equal, Los Angeles, London or New York may be the answer but never forget Moscow; almost every airline based there seems to arise from a different airport.
