Portland International Airport is the busiest in the state, providing up to 90 per cent of the air traffic to Oregon. Nearly 15 million passengers pass through its gates each year.
While its name says international, flights to Portland International Airport are mostly regional with a few routes from Canada. Direct connections can be made to cities such as New York, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, Seattle, Dallas, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Detroit, Salt Lake City, Denver and Los Angeles. Delta operates the airport’s only intercontinental route to Amsterdam.
The airport is attractive and relatively efficient, but tends to be ranked somewhere in the middle in terms of US airports. With no diversions more exciting than free Wi-Fi and an ice-cream cone from Baskin-Robbins, passengers coming through Portland International will find it as adequate as they require.
