GSP is Bigger than PAP

Haiti's Port Au Prince (PAP) airport is smaller than Greenville / Spartanburg's (GSP). PAP has less than 1/6th the number of gates that GSP does, no parallel taxi way. It's tiny.
(Google maps link here - PAP, and here - GSP)

I've flown out of GSP hundreds of times. When I first flew to South Carolina my Sr year in college in the 80s for a job interview, there was a chain link fence around the 1 terminal airport with signs that said "caution jet blast" next to the rental car I picked up. Looks like PAP today is not much bigger than GSP was in the 80s. GSP serves a widely dispersed population of less than 1 million people. PAP is the only Haitian airport that can handle international jet traffic.


  1. 49 posts in 19 days -- you are on a record-setting pace!

  2. It's been raining this week... and I found blogging therapeutic earlier this month after going through progeny-withdrawal once Christopher flew back to SC.

    It's all your fault Ron, for talking me into attempting this form of media in 2008! =)
