Porto Airport Mini Guide

Porto Airport is situated about six miles from the downtown area of Porto and is serviced by a number of mainstream airlines that covers both domestic flights as well as major worldwide destinations. It is the nominated airport for tourists making their way to Porto itself and for those travellers wishing to transport themselves around it is advisable to book car hire at Porto Airport. When in arrivals against the back wall of this level are the car rental offices and the cars are ready to be picked up immediately outside the terminal building.
 
To get to Porto try flying into Sa Carneiro Airport only six miles from the city and with direct links to the centre. Flights arrive there from Europe and Africa as well as Brazil, Mexico and Canada. Ryanair and easyJet both operate low-cost routes out of Stansted and Gatwick respectively. To get to the centre, try the metro link but be aware it does not operate at night. Otherwise consider hiring a car so you can stay independent in your tour of Porto and the surrounding region.
