Cheap Tickets to Portland - Compare Cheap Flights to Portland

The magic of Portland lies in its mixture of big city amenities and small town attitude. That laid back feeling may have something to do with the expanses of incredible natural beauty which surround the city, constantly beckoning you outdoors, even in the rain.

Flights to Portland Airport (PDX) Portland International Airport is the largest and busiest in Oregon, accounting for more than 90% of the passenger traffic in the state. It’s a joint civilian and military airport, handling more than 14 million commercial travelers each year. PDX acts as a hub for both Alaska Air and Horizon, and offers non-stop services to 16 of the 18 major US metropolitan centers.

All commercial flights to Portland Airport disembark in the main H-shaped terminal, which is divided into 5 concourses. The easiest and most affordable way to get downtown from the airport is on the MAX light rail red line, which leaves from the south end of the main terminal under Concourse A. The journey takes about 30 minutes, and the last train leaves at 11:49pm. A taxi journey will cost about $30, or you can choose from a variety of shuttles, buses, charter and rental car services.

What to do in Portland

Downtown Portland is extremely walkable, and is also brilliantly set up to tour by bike. Just wandering through the historic neighborhoods and outstanding city parks is an incredible way to spend the day -- especially if you stop every so often to sample the city’s famous food cart fare, microbrewed craft beers, and excellent coffee.

If the rain starts to get to you, take refuge in any of Portland’s amazing museums: the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry is especially popular with families, and is linked to an IMAX theatre and an old navy submarine, moored just outside.

Advice for Tourists Visiting Portland

They say Portland has two seasons: rain and summer. While locals insist that just zipping on a raincoat and going for it is the best way to enjoy the city, most visitors plan their trips between June and August, when temperatures hover around 80 degrees and the sun consents to shine most days. This short tourist season means that demand for accommodation can be extraordinarily high. You’ll want to book early, and using Skyscanner’s free hotel price comparison tool is the best way to find a gorgeous room at a great price.

While Portland has more than enough to keep you busy in the city center, many travelers want to take advantage of the natural glories right on the city’s doorstep.

Having a car will make it easy to immerse yourself in the majestic river and mountain landscapes, and our free rental car comparison service will help you snag the best deal.
