I haven't seen a master thread, but just finished some work for a client that involved reading up on specific details about the world's ~200 busiest passenger airports. I saw a handful of instances where airlines with commercial passenger service operated out of non-commercial terminals. Looks at the DOT list of commuter airlines, I saw some familiar names on there.

Teterboro Airport was too small for me to look at, but the MEM example is one I would have seen. I feel as if a few of the airports that had water runways might have fallen into this category, but looking at the cities that, off the top of my head, have seaplane terminals (Seattle, Victoria) I didn't spot any others. Lakeshore Express has stopped operating but was flying from the general aviation terminal at MDW. Lakeshore acted like a commercial carrier, but they may have technically been a charter airline.

yeah, not sure how various FAA FAR Parts work >
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal...on_Regulations
Part 121 – Domestic, Flag, and Supplemental Operations
Part 125 – Airplanes Having a Seating Capacity of 20 or More Passengers
Part 135 – Commuter and On Demand Operations

UA154/155 "Island Hopper"

UA154/155 "Island Hopper" is a scheduled commercial service with a stop at KWA (Bucholz AAF Airport, Kwajalein Atoll). Definitely not a commercial airport.

available to civilians through Air Marshall Islands and United Airlines...Since the entire Kwajalein Island is a military base, non-military passengers on commercial flights are transported to and from the neighboring island of Ebeye, the civilian population center of Kwajalein Atoll.

Flew several scheduled flights with these guys, and they used to operate out of the executive terminal at FLL

What about scheduled seaplane services? Do waterdromes count as airports?

Well, I was thinking of places like Sri Lanka, where there are flights from Bandaranaike and Ratmalana to various lakes throughout the island, where the seaplanes land, and dock at given 'waterdromes'. And there are water-to-water flights as well. Not sure how these fit in...

Rectrix Aviation (operating as Rectrix Shuttle) operates out of ORH, HYA, and ACK. All are commercial airports, and they operate out of the commercial terminal, but they escort you to and from the tarmac through a side door (so no TSA, and you never enter the secure area of the terminal)

We'll see if this changes when they start the ORH-BWI service.
