Travelling to Porto
Porto is served by a modern international airport, Francisco Sá Carneiro, which is located in the heart of the industrial north of the country, 11 km 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 €, roundtrip. You should compare the combined price of flying to a major European airport and then fly to Porto with a low-cost carrier, with the regular carrier price for a trip ending in Porto.
