Travel Info

By Air

Porto is served by a modern international airport, Francisco Sá Carneiro, which is located in the heart of the industrial north of the country, 11km from the city of Porto, making it a privileged access point to this valuable commercial area. Many low-cost companies fly to Porto from several major european cities, such as London, Paris or Frankfurt. The price of these flights can be as low as 30 euros, roundtrip. You should compare the combined price of flying to a majoreuropean airport and then fly to Porto with a low-cost carrier, with the regular carrier price for a trip ending in Porto.
