New airport killed the old airport

Mon Oct 14, 2019 1:28 am

Looking for some examples how a newly constructed airport killed the old airport and examples to the contrary.

Stuff like
- Denver international killed Stapleton

Vs

Incheon has been opened but Kimpo still operates.

Any other examples from the rest of the world would be appreciated.

Thanks

Some examples from the Philippines:
Old GES - converted into a military-only facility after new GES opened in the 1990s
Old BCD - closed down when the new BCD opened
Old ILO (Mandurriao Airport) - closed down when the new ILO opened, area redeveloped into a business and leisure district
Old CGY (Lumbia Airport) - converted into a military-only facility after the new CGY (Laguindingan Airport) opened

From other parts of the world:
Paya Lebar - closed to civilian traffic after Changi was opened, today only a military air base
Istanbul Ataturk - closed to passenger traffic months after the new Istanbul Airport opened; currently operates cargo flights but planned to be completely shut down in the next few years
Old Doha Airport - closed down when Hamad International Airport opened
Old Quito Airport - closed down when the new one opened, old airport is currently used as a public park

There have also been recent examples in places such as South Africa, China, and Israel, although their exact names escape me at the moment.

Despite politicians' best efforts, DFW did not kill DAL.

Berlin Brandenburg was also intended to kill TXL. It hasn't exactly worked out for them yet. :spin:

As for contrary:
Subang Airport - Remained open after KLIA started operations, today only serves turboprop flights
Don Muang Airport - Temporarily closed down after Suvarnabhumi Airport opened, reopens a few months later for limited domestic and charter services, later converted to LCC hub
There are also several noteworthy examples in Japan, such as Haneda/Narita, Kansai/Itami, and Chubu Centrair/Komaki, among others.

BLV was supposed to be a large midwestern hub but was basically killed when STL (the old airport) opened a new runway. So now, a fairly new multi-million dollar terminal sits on the outskirts of St. Louis with 6 or so G4 flights a day.
Instead of typing in "mods", consider using the report function.
Love how every "travel blogger" says they will never fly AA/Ethihad again and then says it again and again on subsequent flights.

here in Brazil:

Natal had Augusto Severo Int'l Airport (NAT/SBNT), which is a civil/military airport.

in 2014, the new Aluízio Alves Airport (NAT/SBSG) was opened, and SBNT was fully handed over to the Brazilian Air Force.
I wonder when people will understand:
Embraer 190 or simply E190, not ERJ-190. E-Jets are NOT ERJs!
Boeing 747-8, not Boeing 747-800. Same goes for 787.
Airbus A320, not Airbus 320.
Airbii does not exist.

Edmonton City Centre Airport
(YXD) was replaced, very slowly, by Edmonton International (YEG). The transition began in 1960 with the opening of YEG, and lasted until the end of scheduled service at YXD in 1995. YXD finally closed entirely in 2013.

It technically killed GSW, though there hadn't been commercial flights in years.

DTW effectively killed YIP, though I don't think there was a mandate.

Surprised no one has mentioned YMX, which not only failed to kill YUL, but failed to survive!

(Both YIP and YMX still serve non-commercial traffic.)

Lots and lots of these through the years. Here's as comprehensive of a list as I could come up with - in quite a few of these cases, the old airport stayed open for general aviation or for more limited passenger operations. In a few cases (Haneda, Hongqiao, Don Mueang, etc.) the old airport ultimately wound up just as busy or busier than it was before it was relieved by the new one.

I'm sure I've forgotten some! I've also excluded really small replacements like Williston and Panama City Beaches - if I had to think through all of those, this list would be a mile long.

It's quite surprising in how many cases the old airport stays in use for cargo while all passenger operations have been moved to the new airport. Guess cargo is more difficult to move than passengers.

By the way, I found one more. In 1960, the new Palma de Mallorca international airport opened. The old airport (Son Bonet) remained in use for general aviation, but hasn't seen any airline activity since the new airport opened. However it wasn't entirely new at the time, it already existed as a military airport. It was just expanded with civilian facilities.

That depends on how the OP is defining "killed". It's true that SMF replaced SAC as the city's commercial airport, but SAC still exists as a purely GA airport. The old 1950s era terminal is still there, even.

Narita is slowly dying while Haneda is growing again. Narita was originally intended to replace Haneda as Tokyo's international airport.

In fact, you could say that Haneda did kill Narita in one way already. Narita's official name used to be "New Tokyo International Airport". But the airport authority no longer even pretends that's what it is. It's now just "Narita International Airport". There is only one Tokyo international airport, in terms of the official name, at least, and that's Haneda.

Pre-merger Icelandair and Loftleidir moved all their ops from RKV to KEF in the early 1960s, when runway length at RKV was no longer sufficient for TATL ops. RKV is obviously still operational for domestic and Greenland flights, along with GA traffic.
Nothing compares to taking off in an empty 757 with full thrust!

Essendon is still very much in use as a GA airport, there are still some small regional RPT operators who still fly out of there, and it's proximity to downtown Melbourne ensures a good amount of bizjet & emergency services traffic.

Though being surrounded by suburbia means that Mainline jets will remain at Tulla...

MCI was built out to succeed MKC as Kansas City's primary commercial airport, by FAA mandate. But, MKC continues to thrive as a GA airport as well as for MLB team charters (Chiefs and other NFL team charters use MCI). So, in that sense, MCI did not "kill" MKC. One of the best segments of my daily commute takes me right down Broadway Extension along side MKC and what remains of the former terminal building, now primarily used by YMLY&R ad agency as its HQ. My first flight was on a BI 727 MKC-DAL.

Narita has never been as busy as Haneda, the domestic numbers flying in Japan far outweigh international numbers. While Narita is losing some international flights to Haneda, it still gains new entrants to the Tokyo market, as well as being the major low cost, especially international airport of choice for Tokyo. As it is Narita passenger numbers are nearly 50 million behind Haneda, they will never be close, but Narita was never meant to replace Haneda for all operations, just international ops, which since the rebuild and expansion of Haneda, have seen a substantial number of those flights return to Haneda. Cargo remains far bigger at Narita.

What's with the myth of NRT dying...

They are getting a new runway, continue to set passenger record, and is still the 2nd busiest airports in Japan with almost 39M pax a year. And oh, HND is ALWAYS the larger airport.

Anyway, a few other just in Japan:
Kitakyushu Airport (KKJ) - the old airport was on land, replaced by the current airport built on an artificial island. Open in 2006.
New Ishigaki Airport (ISG) - Replaced the old Ishigaki Airport which didn't have a runway long enough (it was only 1500m, the new airport has a 2000m runway) to enable non-stop flights to Tokyo and Osaka. Open in 2013.
Monbetsu Airport (MBE) - The original airport, opened in 1966, only has a 1200m runway. They build a new airfield with a 2000m runway. The airport, however, is right now used by a grand total of 1 flight per day, a NH flight to HND on a 737/320.
Hiroshima-nishi Airport (HIW)/Hiroshima Airport (HIJ). HIW was the original airport for Hiroshima, located right in the city. The current Hiroshima Airport opened in 1993 with 90% of the flight moving to the new airport, except some J-Air and Japan Air Commuter flight. J-Air left in 2005 and JAC left in 2010, with HIW closed in 2011 and converted to a heliport.

In El Salvador, MSSS (Ilopango Int'l) was replaced with the current MSLP (El Salvador Int'l) if I recall correctly, once the jet age came to be. Now, to get from MSLP/SAL to the city of San Salvador is like a 45 minute trip (without traffic...up to 3 hours with traffic) which kinda sucks when you work at the airport and stay in the city for work LOL

Re: New airport killed the old airport

Kertajati/Jawa Barat Int'l (KJT/WICA) is an airport East of city of Bandung, Indonesia. It is intended to replace Husein Sastranegara Int'l (BDO/WICC\). which is very close to the Bandung city center but unable to expand further because of its location. However, because the new airport is much farther from the city center than the old one (5 km vs. 176 km) and no good public transport systems connect the airport to the city, airlines are reluctant to move their flights from BDO to KJT. Right now, only LCCs fly from and to KJT. Full service and international flights are still using BDO.

Dade-Collier (TNT) in the middle of the Florida Everglades was going to be the airport of the future to replace MIA and FLL. It was supposed to have 6 parallel runways. One runway was built before the project was abandoned. Before simulators became commonplace, airlines would use TNT for pilot training.

Daxing killed Nanyaun for both military and civil use. I don't see it killing Capital since Capital was bursting at the seams. Also, in Israel, the new Ramon airport killed the old Hozman Airport, which bisected the city in two and would be ideal for both redevelopment and reconnecting the two halves of the city. Ramon also killed Ovda (for civilian use).

It seems as if the intent of this thread has been missed by many.

It technically killed GSW, though there hadn't been commercial flights in years.

DTW effectively killed YIP, though I don't think there was a mandate.

Surprised no one has mentioned YMX, which not only failed to kill YUL, but failed to survive!

(Both YIP and YMX still serve non-commercial traffic.)


Well Berlin is a bit more complex: BER - even if not yet open - has killed Tempelhof (THF) already and unfortunately, and will likely kill Tegel (TXL) and „swallow“ Schönefeld (SXF).
