About The Airport
Welcome to Porto Airport.
Porto is Portugal’s second-largest city and one of the Iberian Peninsula major urban areas.
With approximately 1.7 million inhabitants in the metropolitan area, this is a city of many experiences, which unite strong cultural traditions with moments of leisure. Porto offers a wide range of activities, monuments designed by world renowned architects, wonderful gastronomy, and boat tours on the Douro River.
In addition to Porto, the whole Northern region is very popular, due to the four regions that have been classified UNESCO World Heritage sites (Porto, Guimarães, Douro and Foz Côa). It is also the area with the biggest flow of emigration, which makes VFR tourism an important factor for Porto airport.
The drive from Galicia, Spain, to Porto airport is only 1 hour, that’s why the airport serves passengers from the Northern region of Portugal as well as from the Galician region.
In 2019, the airport processed 13,1 million passengers. Investments were also made at the security checkpoints and food and beverage and retail areas, which helped enhance the overall passenger experience.
In 2021, construction concluded on a 1,300m taxiway extension that runs parallel to the runway as well as new 300m rapid runway exit. This new taxiway will not only increase capacity at Porto airport but also improve the efficiency of its operations.
