Re: Big cities without any airport

Leicester UK has no airport. Population over 500K. EMA is less than 20 miles away, and most of that is motorway. I know EMA's closer to Notts and Derby than it is to Leicester, but that's not too bad of a distance. It's as close or closer than many airports are to the cities they allegedly do serve...
