Skyliner, what international routes fly out of Greenville. Germany I suppose? What cities & airlines? I ask in case it might be a (sort of) affordable gateway to europe from the SE US.

Chippewa County International Airport

46.255728,-84.467525 - Google Maps

The entire county (1,500 sq miles of rural Michigan including Sault Ste. Marie) has a population of 38,543. It's not too far from Canada, but Wikipedia says its flights are only to Detroit. However, it was also a former Air Force Base so that very likely has something to do with it's international status (with the immigration facilities and stuff).

Interestingly, Sault Ste. Marie has a city airport but it isn't international although being directly across the river from Canada.

Greenville has no international routes nor could it support any kind of long haul flight.

An "international" airport just means it has customs facilities. Most international airports in the US have no international flights.

Alexandria, LA has an international airport, only because of returning military flights though.

Raleigh-Durham probably can't be considered a "small" market anymore, but they did have international flights as far back as about 1993 or '94 (I flew out of there to London-Gatwick in '94). At the time, that probably had to be one of the smallest-market airports with regularly-scheduled int'l routes.

I can tell you the smallest O&D (origin and destination) market with multiple international flights is Charlotte, NC.

I take "international" to mean a direct, regularly-scheduled commercial passenger flight between the airport and an airport in a foreign country or territory.

By that standard, the smallest such airports in the US are probably out in our territories. Pago Pago International Airport (PPG) serves a town of about 15,000, and a "metro area" of 55,000 or so (spread across several islands), and it has two different airlines flying international routes to the nation of Samoa.

American Samoa's Fitiuta Airport (FTI) serves an island of only 1,000 or so people (Ta‘ū island), and it has had direct flights to Apia, Samoa intermittently.

In terms of small airports with multiple direct flights to foreign countries, the US Virgin Islands has two: Cyril King Airport (STT) near Charlotte Amalie on the island of St. Thomas (population 52,000), and Henry Rohlsen Airport (STX) near Christiansted on St. Croix island (pop. 51,000).

STT has direct passenger flights to Canada (Toronto), Tortola (British Virgin Islands), The Valley (Anguilla, a British overseas territory), St. John's (Antigua), Basseterre (St. Kitts), Sint Maarten (the Dutch half of Saint Martin island), and Gustavia (Saint Barthélemy, a French overseas collectivity). So, that's seven separate foreign destinations representing six different nations.

STX has service to St. John's (Antigua), Nevis (part of the nation of St. Kitts and Nevis), and Sint Maarten, and it used to have direct flights to the nation of Dominica and Sint Eustatius, a Dutch overseas territory.

Saipan International Airport (SPN) in the Northern Mariana Islands has direct flights to Seoul and Busan in South Korea; Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya in Japan; and Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Chengdu in China. Saipan island has around 48,000 residents.

Great Falls, Montana. I'm thinking they might have flights to Calgary and Edmonton?

Actually, no airports in Montana currently have international passenger flights. It's all domestic.
