Don't you love when people repeat stuff mentioned 10,000 times already? I would like to point out that several airlines fly to LGA and JFK, SFO/OAK and that LAX/SNA/LGB/BUR/ONT are LA metro area airports.

Quoting RebelDJ (Reply 51):
Thanks - some great replies here. I was looking for close airports that are served by the same airline - from the same origin (I realise now I left that bit out)!

OK, to define airport pairs served by the same airlines from the same departure point: from my previous posts: LPL and MAN both served from DUB by EI; BHX and EMA, both served from BHD by BE.

Should we start on adjacent Greek island airports? obviously we can't measure road mileage between them, have to be as the ferry sails. I can think of quite a few, all served from ATH by OA/A3, but might not be what RebelDJ meant.

DWC and DXB, TK and QR serve both.

QR also serve DAR and ZNZ, only 34nm apart.

Few airlines on LHR, LGW and LCY.

PVG and SHA.

ICN and Gimpo.

BKK and DMG.

Does anyone serve SEA, Tacoma and Victoria??

Airlink (SA) serve Pretoria (PRY), 29nm from JNB. While JNB is their obvious main hub, they don't serve JNB-CPT route which is left to bigger brother SAA and loads others, while Airlink do exclusively PRY-CPT flights at the moment.

Both Kulula and Mango serve JNB and Lanseria (HLA), which is 21nm apart.

Many probably don't know that JNB actually isn't under Johannesburg Metropolitan jurisdiction, but under the East Rand metropole of Ekhuruleni...while HLA also falls under a different municipality.

Technically SAA serve all 3 airports as they codeshare on Airlink flights on PRY-CPT and also Mango flights in to HLA.

JNB-HLA 21nm
HLA-PRY 23nm
PRY-JNB 29nm

Another airport not too far away from these are Pilansberg/SunCity (NTY), 55nm from HLA...there is actually a service by SA Express JNB-NTY (75nm) on DH4/CR2 2x weekly...only other service is CPT-NTY

Other destinations served close to each other

DUR-Pietermaritzburg (PZB) 38nm by Airlink
Nelspruit (MQP)-Skukuza (SZK) 36nm by Airlink
George (GRJ)-PlettenbergBay (PBZ) 48nm by CemAir

HKG and CAN are some 180km apart but still close-ish. Probably the Guangdong province industry attracts airlines to serve both.

DAL-DFW , SFO-OAK, LGA-EWR are all 11 miles... They are closest airport pairs I could find that are served by the same airline...The only one that is closer is TPA-PIE in Florida @ 10 miles, but I don't think there is an airline that serves both.

MLH - Mulhouse

Two airports, two countries, two ICAO codes, they are separated by a corridor in the same buildinng and share the same runway....

Distance about 10metres, does that count?

Its an interesting conversation, for the purposes of it I will disregard airports considered to serve the same metropolitan area.

EI serve both MAN and LPL from DUB. MAN up to 6 times a day (A320 AT7 mix) , LPL 3 times a day (A320). FR also serve both cities at similar frequency (All 738, of course!). The two airports are 30 miles apart by road, less as the crow flies.

Now of course, this is driving distance. SFO and OAK are much closer to each other than that if drawn a straight line across the water.

And at one time long ago, UA actually had scheduled flights between SFO and OAK. It was probably positioning to move them from the maintenance base at OAK at the time, but was kind of funny to see it in the timetable, listed under San Francisco to San Francisco.

kind of.

Different airport codes though, and (more importantly for me) you get different mileage depending which you fly to...

If you fly to BSL it is an international flight, if you fly to MLH it is a domestic flight (and normally a fair bit cheaper).

Quoting RWA380 (Reply 94):

IIRC, CO used to serve EFD from IAH with DC-9-10's back in the day.

Yep, even more recently, they had E145s between EFD and IAH. I always thought it would be fun to fly that one just to have a boarding pass that shows Houston to Houston. Yep, I'm easily entertained.

Even looks like at one point they branded their HOU-IAH service as Continental's Houston Proud Express.

Can anyone else think of any other flights between two airports of the same city?

This isn't going to win any records but it is notable in this area:

Vancouver-YVR and Abbotsford-YXX are both served by Westjet and Air Canada.
59.91 km apart runway threshold to threshold as the crow flies (71.3 km by car).

YXX is way, way more convenient for folks in the eastern reaches of the region. Plus flying out of YXX helps stem the bleeding to Bellingham-BLI in the US which is way closer- and depending on the destination, much cheaper too- just 26 km away as the crow flies, 39 km by car (plus the border crossing).

As a result, rationalization is not going to see this pair of close neighbours see an end. Indeed, if AC goes for the C-Series it's quite possible that YXX will see much more jet service.

Right, on paper (for the travelers), its two different airports.
Physically, it's just a single one with two different exits as you said.
Many years ago, I was in Basle on a factory visit and as part of a quick city show around, was brought over to the airport by my host to see it as according to him its an oddity and only one of tiny handful in the world (told me another he know of is Geneva) where a person can fly into one airport in two countries. I was told it's totally on French soil right on the border with Switzerland. They just share the costs and operate jointly. I was also told that at the terminal, one can choose which country's immigration to depart from (can anyone confirm that)?
The airport have not two but three IATA codes; BSL (Swiss), MLH ( French) and EAP (neutral).

BEY and DAM are very close, at 66m/106km apart.
They're so close that there are no direct BEY-DAM flights, and I doubt there have ever been. Until a few years ago, going from city to city was very easy, with a routine border crossing with minimal checks for Syrian or Lebanese citizens (an ID card was enough). Took 60-90 minutes each way I think.
Both airports are to some extent interchangeable. During the Lebanese Civil War, most Lebanon-bound pax would have flown in through DAM. Today, the situation is reversed, and anyone wanting to visit Syria, or leave Syria, will probably go through BEY airport, as there are more flights/airlines.
During peacetime, many airlines flew into both cities, as there was always sufficient demand to both. BEY had a slight edge though in terms of popularity, and also had the stronger national airline (MEA).

AMM is also relatively close, around 190km to DAM and 237km to BEY.

I flew HOU-IAH and EFD-IAH many times. EFD was great because it was quick on and off - free parking. IIRC the last foray on the HOU-IAH routes involve 737s as a way to get a little revenue I suppose on the usual ferry flights over to the HOU maintenance base.

Several replies above have mentioned the 1.7 mile (2.8 km) Westray / Papa Westray flights in the Orkney Islands. A feature of these flights flown by a Loganair Islandair is the prime market these flights serve.

On Days 1 through 5 the morning flight that operates Kirkwall - Westray - Papa Westray - Kirkwall is scheduled to depart Westray at 08:56 GMT (08:46 on Day 1) and arrive Papa Westray two minutes later. On weekdays the afternoon flight operates in the opposite direction, Kirkwall - Papa Westray - Westray - Kirkwall. It is scheduled to depart from Papa Westray at 15:21 GMT. The timing and direction of these two flights is so that students resident on Westray can attend the Secondary (High) School on Papa Westray.

There are no flights on Day 6 and just an afternoon flight on Day 7.

This raises a question. Is this service the only school-run flight that is also bookable by the general public?

As the crow flies, Batam's Hang Nadim is much closer to Changi Airport. About 20+km versus around 40km (estimates).
And there's more airlines flying into both SIN and BTH as well. Offhand; Batik Air, Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air and Malindo Air; at least

They are 30km apart...

Several here from New Zealand:

WLG and PPQ are both served from AKL by Air NZ (WLG by 320, PPQ by DH3) and currently also both are served from CHC, though CHC-PPQ is to cease. Distance 49 km.

Also, GBZ (Great Barrier Island) is served by both Barrier Air and FlyMySky from both AKL and NZNE (North Shore). We're talking about the tiny end of airline operations there, though! Think BNI and Cessna Grand Caravan and you'll get the picture. We're talking only 41 km in this case.

Elsewhere in NZ,
* TRG and ROT are served by Air NZ from AKL, WLG and CHC, and they're just 50 km apart.
* BHE and NSN are just 60 km apart, both served direct from AKL, WLG and CHC by Air NZ.
* WAG and PMR are just 64 km apart, both served direct from AKL by Air NZ.
* And WRE and KKE are just 70 km apart, both served direct from AKL by Air NZ.

Until recently, also, ZQN and WKA (50 km apart) were served by Air NZ from CHC

. . . and there are several more airport pairs in NZ between 70 and 90 km apart served from the same point by Air NZ. And, as has been pointed out by another poster, OOL, BNE and MCY in Australia are all served direct from AKL by Air NZ and they're only around 160 km from north to south.

THF and TXL were both served by LH for years, 20km drive and maybe 14km straight line.

As others have said. Bay Area, LA, NY, Chicago, DC, South Florida all have airports served by the same carrier very close to each other.

Places like VIS vs FAT also come to mind where the local VIS equivalent tends to go the way of OXR or CLD in this day and age.

And once you add cargo flights you get places you can get even closer than SFO - OAK I bet.

AC (including AC Express) serve:

YVR and YCD, 33mi, 28nm, 52km

I think YVR-YCD is AC's shortest route (Jazz Dash 8s). I doubt AC would be operating YVR-YYJ or YVR-YCD if YYJ and YCD weren't on an island requiring a time-consuming ferry trip otherwise.

AC/AC Express also serve the following airports (but no service between them):
YYZ and YTZ, 12mi, 11nm, 20km (as the crow flies, about 24km by road).
YLW and YYF, 36mi, 31nm, 57km.

Not only does Logan Air serve both airports, but it flies between them. Now, this does raise the question of why a bridge hasn't been built across such a shallow, narrow channel...

RE: Two Closest Airports Served By The Same Airlin

Mon Dec 28, 2015 3:23 pm

Victoria Falls area:

Victoria Falls Airport (VFA), Zimbabwe and Livingstone (LVI), Zambia is 16nm apart, both served by SAA and BA/Comair from JNB.
In the off-peak seasons BA sometimes combine the flights from JNB as one, JNB-VFA-LVI-JNB, doing the 16nm hop across the falls.

Kasane (BBK), Botswana 42nm west of LVI, both served by Airlink (SA) as well.

SAA also serve both FIH and BZV, however not combined like ET, each seperate.

Now, this does raise the question of why a bridge hasn't been built across such a shallow, narrow channel...

Very expensive for a combined population of around 700, and less than 100 on Papa Westray.

However those are charters for the oil sands companies, not scheduled flights. They may operate to a schedule but they're still not bookable like regular scheduled flights.

Kirkja and Hattarvik - about 1 mile, both served by Atlantic Airways helicopter from Klaksvik.
SDV and TLV - 9 miles, both served by Arkia and Israir from Eilat and possible others.
CWL and BRS - 27 miles, both served by KLM from AMS, plus others.
Tresco Heliport and St Mary's - 2.7 miles, both served by British International from Penzance until a couple of years ago.
The three Aaran Island airports are about 3 miles from each other, all served separately from the mainland by Aer Aaran Islands.

I was in Basle on a factory visit and as part of a quick city show around, was brought over to the airport by my host to see it as according to him its an oddity and only one of tiny handful in the world (told me another he know of is Geneva) where a person can fly into one airport in two countries.

GVA is an oddball. There is a long 'finger' of France which pokes into Switzerland. To reach the French terminal you drive down this, under the runway which is Swiss territory.

Quoting floridaflyboy (Reply 114):
Can anyone else think of any other flights between two airports of the same city?

SEAIR operated from MNL to CRK in the Philippines. Also there are lots of intra-London positioning flights on business jets which can be picked up commercially.

Quoting Directorguy (Reply 120):
They're so close that there are no direct BEY-DAM flights, and I doubt there have ever been.

I almost booked one of these back in 2007, as BasilFawlty has mentioned they are still operated.

Quoting dstc47 (Reply 136):
For a time, until the M50 motorway was completed, there was an S 61 service between LHR and LGW, operated by BCal helicopters for the then BAA.

M25 perhaps?

I wasn't aware that the OP set specific standards that required our posts to only list commercial services. Perhaps I felt that some members not familiar with the area would find it interesting having 3 airports in very close proximity, each having services that rival many Canadian commercial airports in frequency.
