Airports with similar name in different countries.

 The information provided here is part of Export Import Training online

Do you know the country where Santa Rosa airport situates? I hope, most of you can not answer before reading this article.

In this article, let me point out some of the airports named similar, but situate in different countries. These multiple airports with same name in different countries may get confused, if proper airport code and country name not mentioned. You may be working in an import export firm, shipping and freight forwarding companies or customs broker. You need to pay most attention on these places at the time of documentation while shipping.

If the shipment is by air, you must be care on mentioning airport code and country name, otherwise you can imagine what happens to the shipment. While contracting terms of delivery in purchase order or Letter of credit, you need to keep in mind about this location confusion. Let the contract be Ex works, FOB,C&I,CFR,DAP,DDU or DDP, the freight rate is different to each similar port and varies widely. If you calculate wrong freight due to oversight and confusion on similar ports, you are the loser, apart from affecting business relationship.

Where is airport Barcelona situated? This is a confused questionAirports with similar name in different countries copy , as there are two airports named Barcelona airport in Spain and Barcelona airport in Venezuela. Where is Port land airport?. In USA or Australia. Again, the name Port land airport is in both countries. In Portugal and USA, the airport Santa Maria situates. Do you know, airport named Santa Rosa is in 5 countries - USA, BOLIVIA, BRAZIL, ARGENTINA and HONDURAS!

So let me provide below, similar airport names situate in different countries. I also mention the code number of airport with country name. I hope this information helps you in overcoming difficulty due to multiple airport names in different countries.
