"In town" airports / Your favorites

Fri May 01, 2020 10:46 am

Hi everyone,

With the almost end of the TXL airport it's another "in town" international airport who is closing.
I personnaly find this type of airports very usefull but more and more are closing for bigger and further airports.

I find also very convenient Milano LIN / London LCY

Can you guys list the "before covid" still operating "in town" airports?

So the definition of "in town" really differs based on where you're from.

However, SEA, PDX, SFO, LAS, PHX, DCA, LGA, DFW, DAL, SAN, MDW, BOS, BUR, SNA, LGB, and RNO off the top of my head could all be considered in town here in the US.

BGY for Bergamo is amazing as well, 10 minutes by bus and you are downtown! Different story if you have to go to Milan

SDU in Rio was my favorite. My office was a 10 minute walk to the airport - made it real easy when I would work all day, then just stroll over to the airport to catch an evening flight to CGH for the next day.

The only ones remotely close to being in town would be LAS, PHX, DCA, LGA, DAL, SAN, MDW, BOS and RNO. SEA, SFO, PDX, DFW are all a good 30 minute drive to get to your destination in the city center. BUR/SNA/LGB are nowhere close to Downtown LA (BUR is the closest and I prefer BUR over LAX for when I need to be in DTLA, but still).

I'd add MIA to the list. And of course YTZ is as city-center as you can get.

Have some love for SEA and PDX. It is (Google Maps as timer authority) 15 minutes, for example, SEA to T-Mobile Park. Twenty minutes SEA to the Bainbridge Ferry. Sixteen minutes PDX to Lloyd Center.

The purpose of BUR, SNA and LGB isn't to serve downtown LA but the local areas. They do it well.

Fukuoka Airport is literally two subway stops away from the city centre. Takes around five minutes.
Tokyo Haneda isn't too bad either. 20 minutes to Shinagawa.
Taipei Songshan is another one. The Wenhu metro line is directly underneath the airport terminal and it's only a few stops away from the city centre.
Lisbon Airport is also relatively close to the city, I saw an endless parade of TAP A330s fly quite low over the city. Uber from Sao Sebastiao to the airport cost less than 7 euros!

Well, the Lloyd center is already on the side of town closer to PDX and directly linked by the MAX train.. to get to Pioneer Square it takes some ten more minutes!!

Belfast City George Best airport deserves to be mentioned here. It's small, but located in the heart of the city it's much more convenient than Belfast International which is a good distance away from the city.

Belfast City Airport BHD - the name is something of a clue, is located in Belfast Harbour very close to the city centre, unlike Belfast International, BFS, which is close to Lough Neagh.

BHD retains some passenger traffic in these extraordinary times, while BFS retains only freight and other services.

At the other side of the world we find Kuala Lumpur - Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah airport which is located in the city of Kuala Lumpur. Meanwhile the big new Kuala Lumpur International airport is a good distance away from the city, so Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah can be considered a city airport.

I did a lot of flying into northern NJ until last year and I always found EWR very convenient. It is 3 miles south of downtown Newark and near downtown Elizabeth as well. I'd even fly to EWR whenever I had to cross the state line into NYC! Much easier via NJTransit bus or train than dealing with a NY cabbie!

WAW is very near Warsaw center. Much closer than WMI which is further out. Can't believe they're planning a new WAW airport somewhere in between Warsaw and Lodz that'll be even further away from Warsaw than WMI that is set to replace the old WAW.

It's closed now, but I had the absolute privilege of arriving in Tempelhof from Brussels in late 2005 . The terminal building definitely gave the feeling of travelling in the Golden Age of Flying (and it helped that SN parked underneath the canopy). I remember strolling through the terminal and feeling like an extra from some period film.

Several cities in East Asia all have a convenient "in-town" airport for domestic and regional routes, and a larger, farther airport airport for long haul and the bulk of international flights. The thing is, most main international airports in Asia are very far from the city center, at least 30 km away.

Tokyo - HND
Shanghai - SHA
Seoul - GMP
Taipei - TSA
Kuala Lumpur - SZB

I'd call an "in town" airport a secondary airport that's closer/more convenient to the CBD than the international airport, myself.

Using that definition, in North America you have DCA, LGA, YTZ, DAL, HOU, arguably MDW, BUR, and very arguably PIE (for the St Petersburg CBD, but this is a stretch.) Not including DET because assuming commercial passenger service.

South America AEP, SDU, CGH

Europe LCY, BHD as noted, LIN, IEV, BMA, former GSE

SFO is not an "in town" airport. It is a good 16-18 miles from downtown.

SNA and LGB are nowhere close to Los Angeles. LGB is about 8 miles from Long Beach downtown. SNA is close to the South Coast Metro area that has a few financial and tech offices but that is not a "town".

SFO is where you start to get into the debate of does downtown = in town or does in town mean something different.

As far as SNA and LGB, they are very much in town airports. SNA is centered between Santa Ana, Irvine and Costa Mesa. LGB may be 10 miles to downtown LGB but that ignores the fact that the downtown portion of LGB is on the coast quite literally and that most of the city is between the airport and downtown.

Los Angeles is a case by itself because it's hard to determine where the center actually is. It consists of a lot of towns which each have their own center.

However Google says the center of Los Angeles to be near Union station, so let's go by that. The thing is, there is no airport really close to Union Station. Not even an airfield. I think Burbank would be the closest followed by LAX, but both are still a good distance away. Technically they are within the city limits, but they're nowhere near downtown.

Therefor I think it's safe to say Los Angeles doesn't have a city airport.

SNA is a tricky one. The address says it is in Santa Ana. But if you look at the OC map, the cities of Costa Mesa, Irvine and Newport Beach surround the airport. Based on the OC map, SNA is not even in Santa Ana. But yes, SNA is equidistant from downtown Santa Ana, Balboa peninsula (Newport Beach) and maybe the center of Irvine (Irvine does not have a downtown/city center)

If you define “city center” as small, walkable, and urban (YTZ being the preeminent example), I think SNA qualifies even though its urban area isn’t especially dense. I’ve walked from SNA to meetings across MacArthur. It isn’t hard as long as you know how to cut through the parking garage.

Surprised no one has mentioned DXB yet. It's smack in the middle of Dubai with fully developed areas on all four sides.
Back when the site was chosen in the late 1950s Dubai was a small town and was two districts-Bur Dubai, and across the creek, Deira. They chose a site several kilometres south of Deira. The stretch of road separating the busy creek area and DXB is literally under 10 minutes. Most airports serving big cities are usually surrounded by low key communities, urban sprawl etc not busy commercial districts.

Albrook "Marcos A. Gelabert" (PAC) is another one that hasn't been mentioned so far. It's the city airport of Panama City, located near the entrance of the Panama canal. Much more convenient than Tocumen (PTY), which is quite a bit outside the city.

HNL, SAN, SJC, LAS, PHX, SLC, DCA, BOS, LCY, VCE (unique in taking a boat to the city), ZQN, AEP, USH, SYD (borderline, but I'll add it thanks to a quick train ride into the city)

Also, the former AUS airport (Robert Mueller) was near downtown Austin.

Another vote for Taipei Sonshan. It's very easy and quick to get to, thanks to Taipei's excellent MRT (underground train system). Another reason I really like this airport: Taipei is surrounded by hills. The take-off/landing scenery here is fantastic!

A hub that's been missed in this discussion is CLT. It's certainly not as close as some like San Diego, but is closer to downtown and in-town neighborhoods than many airports that have already been noted in this thread.

Meigs Field (CGX) in Chicago was mentioned before. Also closed, but not mentioned so far is Kai Tak.

Back in Chicago, MDW is not exactly lovable, but it is convenient to the city's skyline, the Loop, Lakeshore Drive, etc.

I think it's fair, if you're also including BOS. And if you're talking train to get there it's pretty similar to DCA in terms of time.

I've done BOS, SYD, DCA, SZB, SIN. SIN prob No1 for me, although I spend much more time at SYD.

IFP is across the river from Laughlin casinos - 2-3 miles to all the casinos

PHX is close to downtown

SLC is close to downtown, depending on traffic how long to drive

Wouldn't call that exactly close. Definitely not the furthest, but it's on the edge of the city. Pretty average location for an airport.

However from what I can see this airport can only be accessed by car, which is a huge downside. The other airports mentioned here can all be accessed on foot from the city. In other words, you can walk straight from the terminal into the city. Impossible to do that in Salt Lake City.

If you want an "in town" airport, don't mention the word driving.
