Airports in Oregon

Portland International Airport (PDX)


Close to 15 million passengers pass through Portland International Airport each year. It is the busiest airport in Oregon and accepts flights from across the United States and Canada. There is also one intercontinental flight to and from Amsterdam.

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. A laptop or tablet device is recommended for those passengers spending a couple of hours in the airport.


The airport is situated nine miles (14km) from downtown Portland.

Getting to the city

Portland's MAX light rail system serves the airport, connecting to the heart of the city, for a fare of around $2.50, and with a travelling time of around 40 minutes. 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, on the baggage claim and departure level.


GMT -8 (GMT -7 from March to November).
