Wed Apr 06, 2011 8:55 pm

Which airport is the farthest?

Any others?
I'm not including traffic, km/miles only

Sounds like a sporcle quiz of some kind...
What about STN or LTN...they are both advertised as serving London, but if I remember correctly, they are pretty far out from London.

KUL is about 32 miles from the City and seems a lot more distant than that.

NRT is slowly being repositioned as a regional and connecting airport. It is no longer called "New Tokyo International Airport", it is simply "Narita Airport". Most Tokyo residents use HND if they can (which is still called Tokyo International), and with the opening of international slots, the line between the domestic/international distinction that these airports had in the past is blurring.

I guess my point is I don't know if I'd even necessarily say NRT "serves Tokyo" anymore, as much as it serves its surrounding area (including Tokyo) and as a connecting point for the rest of Japan.

Anyway, DEN is 25 miles from downtown Denver, just to add another airport into the mix.

Airports mentioned above plus one of the most famous Ryanair regional airports: Hahn.
These are distances from city center according to OAG information * are as follows:

DEN 23MI 37KM
ICN 31MI 50KM
KUL 31MI 50KM
LTN 32MI 51KM
STN 34MI 55KM
NRT 41MI 66KM
VCP 62MI 100KM
LXA 62MI 100KM
HHN 75MI 120KM

* Except for VCP (Viracopos-Campinas International Airport, Brazil, on the outskirts of Sao Paulo) for which I googled the distance.

Hello,

BVA is advertised as Paris-Beauvais by FR, but I beg to differ. The airport serves the city of Beauvais, and is operated by the Chamber of Commerce of the Oise-département, which is not part of the wider Paris area, whilst ORY, LBG, and CDG are operated by ADP (Aéroports de Paris)

I live relatively close to BVA (and use it quite often), but I remember very well the 1990-era, when it was more of a logistical and technical hub.

I would assume (or even ascertain in some cases) that this is the case with many destinations of the FR network : old cargo airports, former NATO bases, and so on... now advertised as part of the global network of some metropolis, but not thought and/or built for that purpose.


Could we find some candidates in the Gulf Countries, or in the CIS, where the availability of sheer space in the desert would explain/justify a distant airport?

It's hard to give an answer here because there is a very blurry line between what city an airport actually "serves." Oftentimes, an airport is not located in the city it serves (for example, EZE, NRT, etc.) although it still serves that major city. Other times, an airport doesn't really serve a major city, but it still adverstises itself as if it does (generally the case with LCCs...for examples, Brussels-Charleroi, Oslo-Rygge, etc.). So where do we draw the line? In theory, an airline could be located in one well-known city while advertising itself to serve another city altogether. How about an airline starting a flight to Philadelphia-Atlantic City? Or an airline serving Dallas-Waco? Or how about Montral-Burlington? Where does it stop?

Oh, and by the way, when the above nonsense isn't taken into account, I believe that WDH is one of the farthest airports from the city it serves.

IAH is said to be 20mi north of downtown Houston. If you live in the south suburbs,Brazoria County,Ft Bend County I'm sure it's quite a haul.

From my door to the employee lot it is 27.8 mi.

There is alot between IAH and wherever you're going in Houston so it may not feel like a long ride if you're in town. Farther out...different story.

Milan, Italy's Malpensa Airport, one of three 'serving' the city and region and the primary long haul airport, is about 40 Kms/25 Miles from city center of Milan. I know it is a ways out as I flew out of there in June 1985 on an ATA - L-1011. The airport was not as busy then, I missed the express bus service, and had to take a Milan subway to another train station and take a train to a train station about 3-4 miles from the airport, then a cab from the train station to the terminal.

Denver is definitely about the most distant in the USA at about 25 Miles from downtown Denver. Very long if snow or other severe weather.

The Gatwick Express (every 15 minutes) only takes 30 to 35 minutes.. That's fast compared to many airports much closer to the city they serve.

Montreal Mirabel airport (YMX) is about 35 miles (56 km) from the city center. Fortunately passenger flights no longer use it but from 1975 to 1997 international flights (except USA) were forced to use Mirabel. That killed Montreal's use as a connecting hub during that period, to the major benefit of YYZ. What a horrible waste of taxpayer money.

YMX would have been far more useful had some of the connectors been completed. I won't disagree with the point that it was a white elephant, though.

depends on whether we're using the city's own definition, or the stretch definitions used by Ryanair and Skybus

also, are we comparing secondary and tertiary airports, or the farthest primary airport ? (both NRT and HND should be considered primary)

Flying to HHN and calling it Frankfurt is nearly like flying to SMF and calling it SanFrancisco

Yeah, but the catchment area for MHT would encompass the northern and western suburbs of Boston, which is pretty substantial in and of itself. During Boston's rush hour, it's probably easier for many than going to BOS.

I've been surprised. Despite rampant cronyism, budget overruns, and expansion limited by NIMNYism, BOS has done a good job of attracting carriers and provide easy access. The new I-90 connector, I-93 rerouting, and 3rd harbor tunnel have actually made accessing BOS a relatively painless process.

Access from the Metrowest region of Framingham/Natick to BOS is about 21 miles as opposed to 63 miles to MHT. The 10 mile drive to the decision point would fight the same traffic. After that, might as well stay on I-90 and proceed 11 more miles to BOS as opposed to 52 more miles to MHT which includes two major bottlenecks at I-90/95 and I-95/Rt3. Another option is to backtrack toward Worcester adding several miles to the trip, Worcester, the 2nd largest city in MA to BOS is about 50 miles against 71 miles to MHT. Again, it's a straight shot down I-90 as opposed to several highway changes. Those in the Springfield-Chicopee area can goto BDL 20 miles away vs 121 miles to MHT. Toward the north, I can see folks in the Lawrence area looking at MHT but anyone from about Woburn down south have an easy shot to BOS. In the Gloucester/Cape Ann, the most convenient highways take you toward BOS first before turning back north to MHT. There have been proposals to extend the commuter rail from the Lawrence area to MHT but nothing has come of that project. Overall public transportation to BOS from most areas in MA is possible and relatively painless.

I think NRN should be included in the list. FR refers to it as Dusseldorf-Weeze Airport, but it is 82km or 51 Miles from downtown Dusseldorf in no man´s land. And it is a heck of a ride when the A57 is jammed.

I do not see how it is "another FR airport" when CRL - and other airports, like HHN and BVA - are also served by other carriers, particularly W6 and also others (e.g. JetairFly which has a base at CRL). Of course, these other airlines never get mentioned - despite also using the nearest big city in their airport name.
