Largest and Smallest Passenger Aircraft Serving Your Local Airport

Sat Mar 04, 2017 4:49 am

Forgive me if this has been done before, but I thought this would be interesting to see. Just curious as to which passenger carrying aircraft serving your local airport are the largest, and which are the smallest.

Local airport for me is BDL

Largest pax aircraft, Boeing 757-200, Aer Lingus and Delta (on and off)
Smallest....Beech 1900, Air Canada Expresss

Largest is DL A330-300 to AMS
Smallest is 4B PC-12 to PDT

For Toronto YYZ

Largest: A380 from Emirates
Smallest: B1900 from Air Georgian & for non-passenger C208 from Morningstar Air Express (FedEx Feeder).

I would imagine sequencing those little guys among the sea of wide-body arrivals in the afternoon would be a fun challenge for ATC.

Largest Cargo: KL 747-400 ERF (operated by MP)
Largest Pax: AF Boeing 777-300 ER

I actually live a few hundred yards south of SYQ, but I'm not listing it because SYQ has become more of an airport for general aviation and for official/rescue flights by the SVA (air surveillance service) unit of the MSP (Ministry of Public Security) over the years I was absent. We have regular road patrols by the SVA in our neighbourhood as well and they've been good to us all along.

LHR

Biggest, no surprise here, the Airbus A380 - I read somewhere that 10% of all passengers at LHR now arrive/depart on an A380
Smallest, pretty sure it's KLMs Fokker F70
Soon there will be the reintroduction of turborpops to LHR when Flybe start domestic routes with the Dash8-400, but that has a few more seats than the F70.

Slight amendment to my previous post - if I count in the blocked out seats for the business class cabin on the KLM F70 then the maximum potential seating on the F70 will exceed the seating capacity of the soon to arrive at LHR Flybe 8-400s.

Pretty close here

That is besides military aircraft of course. Not much variety in civilian aircraft but you see all types of military aircraft here.

That's the smallest commercial flight. There are several smaller corporate jets. As far as cargo, FX flies the A306 here. FX1338 MEM-ORF is the only regular widebody flight.

I work at NQY. Largest aircraft is Ryanair 737-800 (189 seats). Smallest aircraft is Isles of Scilly Skybus Britten-Norman Islander (8 seats). We see 757s, 767s, 787s and A330s for training regularly but we don't have any scheduled flights with them.

This is an interesting one if your local airport is NRN. That would result in:

Largest - 737-800
Smallest - 737-800

Indeed, NRN only sees regular service on one single type, mostly FR but some HV occasionally too.
