Airports in Portland Oregon

Portland International Airport (PDX)


Millions of passengers pass comfortably through Portland International Airport each year. It is the busiest airport in Oregon and welcomes flights mainly from across the United States and Canada.

Portland International Airport doesn't offer too many passenger amenities and there are often traffic jams en route to the airport. It is best to allow some extra time when picking up or dropping off passengers.


The airport is situated 13 miles (21km) from downtown Portland.

Getting to the city

Portland's MAX Light Rail system serves the airport, connecting to the heart of the city. There's a travel time of around 40 minutes and trains depart roughly every 15 minutes. Taxis, shuttles, buses, and rental cars are also available. All transportation pickups occur on the airport terminal's lower roadway which is on the baggage claim and departure level.
