It looks like 1268 miles is the longest domestic flight in India between two top 10 airports.(compared to Boston to Miami 1258 miles).

Distance from DEL airport in miles (largest airports in India)
  1. 705 BOM
  2. 1058 BLR
  3. 1090 MAA
  4. 816 CCU
  5. 783 HYD
  6. 1268 COK
  7. 470 AMD
  8. 716 PNQ
  9. 931 GOI

Even the smallest of the 10 airports, GOI, has some international flights (just seasonal nonstops to Europe)
Seasonal:
Finnair Helsinki
Thomas Cook Airlines London–Gatwick, Manchester
TUI Airways Birmingham, London–Gatwick, Manchester
Azur Air Ukraine charter: Kiev–Boryspil

Every state in India (out of 29) has atleast 1 International Airport. Most common flights are either to Persian Gulf Destinations like Dubai, Muscat, Doha, Kuwait & Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Singapore.
Kerala is a unique state to have 3 International Airports due to their diaspora in Middle East.

Other then that, passengers either use Emirates/Etihad/Qatar to travel to Europe/USA/Canada from their State International Airport or travel to bigger Airports like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad where Air India, British Airways, Lufthansa options are available.

Yes, it is Stewart NY (SWF), the old West Point airport.
The unknown US airport that could change transatlantic travel forever

Trenton Mercer Airport is only a few miles from the PA border, so it would be considered a Philly area airport, although it often advertises Princeton NJ.

Continental (now merged with United) began flying from Newark to Delhi on November 1, 2005. The airline soon started flights to Mumbai.
Air India (a Star Alliance partner with United) also flies from Newark to Delhi and Mumbai. They also had nonstops to Ahmedabad , but that will end next week on November 15, 2018).

In 1980 the USA still dominated air travel around the world

#1 Chicago O-Hare 43.7 million
#2 Atlanta's 40.2 million
#3 Los Angeles International, with 33 million.
#4 Heathrow with 27.5 million.
#5 Kennedy International with 26.8 million passengers
#6 San Francisco International, with 22.2 million
#7 Dallas-Fort Worth, 22 million;
#8 Denver's Stapleton International, 20.8 million
#9 Miami International, 20.5 million.
#10 LaGuardia Airport, 17.5 million.
#11 Frankfurt (West Germany) Airport, 16.9 million.
#12 Osaka (Japan) Airport, 16.4 million.
#13 Boston-Logan Airport, 14.7 million.
#14 Washington National Airport, 14.5 million.
#15 Honolulu International, 14 million.
#16 Toronto International, 13.7 million.
#17 Greater Pittsburgh International, 11.5 million.
#18 Fiumicino Airport in Rome, Italy, 11.4 million.
#19 Houston Intercontinental, 10.7 million.
#20 Cairo (Egypt) Airport, 10.5 million.


I have no idea why Haneda Airport in Tokyo was not busier than Osaka in 1980. Greater Pittsburgh International was still in the top 20 Internationally. Amsterdam and Paris were not as highly developed in Europe.

In 1966 only 6 airports had 9 million or more passengers per year. JFK, ORD, LAX, SFO, LHR, ATL

Osaka Airport was used extensively for Korean War. It remained in American hands much longer then Haneda Airport of Tokyo. This Osaka Airport in now known as Itami Airport-international flights have moved to Kansai Airport. I remember that PanAm used to fly to Osaka-Itami. Many International Airlines used to fly there like Air India. I remember watching an old Bollywood movie where the main character in Air India lands at Osaka and then Shinkansen High Speed Rail was shown from Osaka to Tokyo. Probably Osaka was better suited for flights to Australia, Vietnam !!!

In 1978, Narita Airport opened and since then Tokyo Airports (Haneda + Narita) have overtaken Osaka (Itami + Kansai) in passenger traffic.

Probably explains why Frankfurt and Rome were the top airports on the continent of Europe in 1966. Since they were built up by the US military after WWII, they had the best infrastructure

Top Airports in Europe in 2017 were:
  1. London Heathrow Airport Hillingdon, London United Kingdom LHR/EGLL 78,014,598
  2. Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport Roissy-en-France, Île-de-France France CDG/LFPG 69,471,442
  3. Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Haarlemmermeer, North Holland The Netherlands AMS/EHAM 68,515,425
  4. Frankfurt Airport Frankfurt, Hesse Germany FRA/EDDF 64,500,386
  5. Istanbul Atatürk Airport Yeşilköy, Istanbul Turkey IST/LTBA 63,859,785
  6. Madrid Barajas Airport Barajas, Madrid Spain MAD/LEMD 53,386,075
  7. Barcelona–El Prat Airport Barcelona Spain BCN/LEBL 47,262,826
  8. London Gatwick Airport Crawley, West Sussex United Kingdom LGW/EGKK 45,561,694
  9. Munich Airport Freising, Bavaria Germany MUC/EDDM 44,577,241
  10. Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport Fiumicino, Lazio Italy FCO/LIRF 40,968,756
  11. Sheremetyevo International Airport Khimki, Moscow Oblast Russia SVO/UUEE 40,092,806

Istanbul will probably surpass Paris in a few years

I don't know where you did get this list but it's wrong.
Paris Orly airport had 15.9 million passengers in 1980. It should be on this list above Rome.

TTN to me would be a good airport to alleviate some traffic at EWR and PHL, about half way between the two with about 8-10M or so million within a 60 minute drive, not sure if AA or United would do anything there due to the proximity of hubs in PHL and EWR, and probably wouldn't be feasible for Delta, maybe SW or more frontier but personally would prefer a mainline carrier with more activity; maybe AA would make most sense as an alternative for N Jersey that might attract AA fliers not wanting to go to LGA or JFK, but again then might purge some AA from PHL, which is setup as a hub




to me would be viable for some regional stuff, like BOS, PVD, RDU, ORD, JFK (if AA and connector), and would be nice if there was an SFO and LAX option - maybe even a PHL connection if AA enhanced


even one or two UK flights


right now is basically a Frontier FLA airport


Think a huge issue is NIMBYS and expanding the airport and more traffic over some pricey real estate on the NJ and PA side


TTN would have decent transit connections from both NYC and Philly with a little additional infrastructure
