Flights To Cities With Same Name From Same Airport

Sun May 22, 2016 12:48 pm

Which airports have flights to cities with the same name?

I can think of:

LAX: San José de Costa Rica, San José del Cabo, San José (California)

MAD: Santiago de Chile, Santiago de Cuba and Santiago de Compostela. Note that people usually don't use the "de XXX" for communication purposes.

MCO or EWR: Manchester (NH) and Manchester (UK)

MIA: Barcelona (Venezuela) and Barcelona (Spain).

Any other?

Quite a few airports in Canada have both London, UK and London, ON on their route maps.

While Toronto doesn't have a nonstop service to Sydney, Australia, it does have a direct flight via YVR and also a flight to Sydney, NS.

And Orlando has service to both Birmingham, UK and Birmingham, AL although BHX is only served from SFB and BHM from MCO.

I wonder if there are also flights from city X to city Y with the same name as X. For example a hypothetical flight from London, Ontario to London, UK?

CLT is the other airport with service to both Fayettevilles.

ATL and CLT also both have service to Charleston, SC (CHS) and Charleston, WV (CRW). Edit: And so does ORD.

And Toronto to Saint John, NB (YSJ) and St. John's, NL (YYT). "Saint" is normally spelled out for YSJ while "St." for YYT is normally abbreviated. AC serves both of those plus Fort St. John, BC (CYXJ). The capital of the Caribbean country of Antigua and Barbuda, also served by AC, is another St. John's.

A few years ago I was flying from the A concourse at IAD, one of the gates where one GA handles multiple departures simultaneously. Some genius thought it was a good idea to board flights to CHS and CRW from the same gate at the same time!

Slightly off, but what could have been: direct flights between Singapore (Southeast Asia) and Singapore (Michigan). If history had been kinder, and the greed of Man had not manifested following the Great Chicago Fire of October 1871 which had been a curse in disguise for the other Singapore, there will now be two thriving port cities with the same name almost 10,000 miles apart.

I was at CLT last year and they had flights going out of E31 and E33, which are right next to one another, to Greenville, NC (PGV) and Greenville, SC (GSP). They could have put "Greenville/Spartanburg" for GSP but the signs just said "Greenville, NC" and "Greenville, SC."

Should add DXB to that list.

Then you could also include the other mother of travel agent stories
London City to Granada (GRX)
London Gatwick to Grenada (GND) both on BA

That is set up to confuse some less travelled pax.

My bad, I should've double checked before I typed my reply. Anyways, to contribute a new one, although not exactly with matching city names, many cities (DEN, MSP, ORD, PDX, SEA, SLC)have service to both Logan Airport, Boston and Logan Airport, Billings.

Valencia could refer to Valencia Spain or Valencia Venuzuela, although there's no airport that serves both. Same is the case with St. Louis USA and St. Louis Senegal, the latter seeing no scheduled air service at all.

How is this post an addition? There are many cities with the same name, all over the world.

Am I missing some relevance here?
