Due to its geographical location and historic relations, Porto is a privileged gateway to European, American, African and Asian countries.

Located just 15 km from the city centre, half an hour by metro and 15 minutes by car, Porto Airport is the international entryway to Portugal and a European hub, serving more than 9.4 million passengers a year flying to 81 airports in 72 different cities in 22 countries. Indirectly, benefiting from the air bridge with Porto, Porto is connected with 118 airports placed in 106 cities in 39 different countries, covering four continents. It has also been awarded as the Best in Europe 2016 (5-15M passengers per year) by Airports Council International. Over the last 10 years, it has been consecutively in the Top 3 of the best airports in Europe.

With an average of approximately 2.5/3 hours flight distance from European capitals, lots of flights a week to European cities and frequent direct connections to major world business centres, Porto Airport features one terminal building.

It has a metro station, which allows reaching the city centre in around 30 minutes. Campanhã station, the main transport hub for trains, buses and metro, is only a few minutes away from the airport.

In 2017, the airport will grow 20%, and the already announced investments of 55 million euros will increase the number of take-offs from 20 to 32 per hour, thus enabling the goal of having 15 million passengers per year.

Furthermore, Portuguese is the 5th most spoken language in the world and an international business language.
