Many cities are served by more than one airport, typically to avoid congestion, and where there may be factors preventing expansion to existing airports. In other cities, multiple airports may be built to cater for specific uses, such as between international and domestic flights. The following lists cities which are served by more than one airport offering scheduled passenger services even if it is not within the city boundaries. Military airbases (without passenger service) and airports serving only charter flights are not included.
