One-airline Airports

Thu Nov 13, 2014 9:16 am

If my research is any good, EAU in Eau Claire, Wisconsin is served by United and no other passenger airlines. The same, it seems, can be said about CLD in Carlsbad, California. And if you want you should fly in to St. Augustine, Florida on a commercial, scheduled flight, Frontier apparently is your only option.

Any other airports you can think of that only have one commercial operator? (I bet G4 would be the operator in many instances...)

Yep BWT and DPO in Australia. QantasLink and Rex used to fly to both, then they split it so QantasLink does DPO and Rex the other. I pay 'a mint' for the convenience to fly domestically from interstate there. I could travel to Asia for less. The only advantage is that, the convenience, and the fact that these airports still operate. They are well used, and about five departures a day, and I am sure if they used 717 for example, they would still fill the seats. For the past few years now, only these..

G4 does have a ton of them in the USA:

AGA, OZD, PVU, PGD, SCK, BLV, PSM, LCK, USA (how the hell did it get that code?).
Effectively PIE, RFD.

And a few others that I'm too tired to comb through.

Really makes me wonder how that arrangement works out, especially for an LCC... Maybe I'll post another thread to ask on that.

Tioman Island in Malaysia is served only by Berjaya Air from Kuala Lumpur (Subang).* They recently cancelled the SIN-TOD flights.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tioman_Airport

*Do they still operate this route? I couldn't get their website to work and saw nothing on flightstats.

Expanding upon your Eau Claire example, here are a smattering of secondary airports that only have service on one of the US majors. I know AA in Texas and UA in California from experience, but I might be off on the others.

AA from DFW - ACT, SJT, SPS, GGG, TXK, PIB, MEI, MHK

DL in Minnesota and Michigan - INL, BJI, HIB, BRD, RHI, IMT, ESC, PLN, and APN.
DL near Atlanta - ABY, BQK

UA in California - CIC, RDD, ACV, CEC, VIS
UA near IAD - MGW, PKB, DUJ
UA near ORD - CMX, HYS

A few scattered K5 destinations - HOT, HRO, ELD, GBD, SLN, and PDT.

Several in Utah, Idaho, and Nevada only see one airline:

Vernal (VEL), Moab (CNY), Cedar City (CDC)- Delta Connection/SkyWest
Ogden (OGD) and Provo (PVU)- Allegiant
Twin Falls (TWF) and Pocatello (PIH) DL/SkyWest
Elko (EKO)- DL/SkyWest

I suppose St. George (SGU) only sees one airline in the form of OO, but they operate for both DL and UA.

Far too many to list. The vast majority of regional airports only have one carrier, be it Rex, QantasLink, Skytrans, Skywest etc.

In Iceland:

Air Iceland (NY), Norlandair (FNA) and Ernir/Eagle Air (FEI) serve a few airports each that no other airline serve.

NY: Isafjordur (IFJ) and Egilsstadir (EGS)
FNA: Grimsey (GRY), Thorshofn (THO) and Vopnafjordur (VPN)
FEI: Vestmannaeyjar (VEY), Gjogur (GJR), Bildudalur (BIU), Husavik (HZK) and Hofn Hornafjordur (HFN).

Surely there must be a few FR-only airports in mainland Europe?

I once flew in to IPT (Williamsport, PA) from PHL on US, and it was (and still is) the only airline there. 2x daily, I believe (maybe 3x?)

I thought they kept the service to SFO.

Thanks for the correction.

Beaumont BPT only has American Eagle service from DFW, as does Wichita Falls, and Abilene, TX.

I think a handful of the Micronesia islands only have UA service. And probably some smaller cities in Siberia may have one airline.
When wasn't America great?

Quoting Airstud (Thread starter):
it seems, can be said about CLD in Carlsbad, California.

I've flown in there many times. Great airport as well. Several small airports like CEC, ACV, RDD and a few more airport in the Northwest have links to SFO on the E120.

Great Lakes serves IGM, MCE, PRC, and VIS all in the southwest.

Allegiant serves SCK and use to fly to MOD.

CapeAir also fly to BHB.

On that subject, CapeAir is the only carrier at most of their stations.

Well, to answer my own question, here is a list of Ryanair-only airports:

Lappeenranta Airport, Finland (LPP) *
Beziers Cap d'Agde Airport, France (BZR)
Carcassonne Airport, France (CCF)
Tours Val de Loire Airport, France (TUF)
Kaunas Airport, Lithuania (KUN) **
Warsaw Modlin Airport, Poland (WMI) ***
Stockholm Vasteras Airport, Sweden (VST)
Derry Airport, UK (LDY)
Glasgow Prestwick Airport, UK (PIK) **

* seems like a new Finnish charter airline called Snowbird will start operations there next year
** only passenger airline, some cargo operators also use the airport
*** as noted by thunderboltdrgn

When it comes to passenger traffic VST is also served by the Turkish charter airline XC (Corendon Airlines).

There is also a cargo airline serving VST, not sure which it is nowadays, it used to be 3V (T.N.T).
