Cheap Flights to Oregon

If you were planning to whip up a state from scratch, and you wanted it to have a little bit of everything that makes America great, you’d probably come up with a place a lot like Oregon. Towering mountains, cascading waterfalls, well-roamed ranchland, cool deep forests, a dramatic coastline, and people with all the grit, pioneer spirit, and forward-looking energy you could ask for.

Flights to Oregon The biggest airport here is Portland International Airport (PDX), which accounts for 90% of the air traffic in the state. Most flights to Oregon will land here. It shares space with an Air Force base, and it serves 14 million commercial passengers each year. PDX is a hub for both Alaska Air and Horizon, and offers nonstop routes to most main hubs in the US.

Eugene Airport (EUG), also known as Mahlon Sweet Field, is the second busiest, with over 400,000 enplanements annually. Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport (MFR) comes in third, with about 300,000, and Roberts Field (RDM), serving central Oregon, is fourth, with about 250,000 passenger boardings annually.

What to Do in Oregon

Sure, it rains a lot, but the locals know it’s nothing a good fleece and shell won’t fix. In the warmer months, Oregon is ripe for road trips, with more jaw-dropping scenery you can shake a stick at. From the exposed earth of the Painted Hills to the majesty of Mount Hood (it’s a volcano!), this is a state of natural wonders. Hiking, kayaking, whitewater rafting, skiing, snowboarding: if you can do it outside, you can do it in Oregon.

Oregon’s cities, while modern and busy as anywhere else in the country, are built on a welcoming, human scale. Portland is a superbly walkable city (zip up that rain jacket!) and packed with delicious boutique eateries, zany art galleries, pretty parks and amazing museums. Check out the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry for a fun-filled, brain-stretching afternoon.

June through August can see toasty 80 degree days and most of the rain takes a holiday for these months, which means a busy tourist season.
