This summer, the airport will add 14 new routes and connections to 3 new countries, namely Iceland, Latvia, and Israel, as well as six new airlines: airBaltic, Norwegian, Play, SAS Scandinavian Airlines, Sun D’Or, and Austrian Airlines. This increases the number of airlines serving this airport to 31.

There will be a reinforcement of connectivity with Stockholm, Shannon, Glasgow, Riga, Reykjavik, Tel Aviv, Vienna, Copenhagen, Berlin, Bristol, Paris (Orly) and Nantes.

In addition, Porto Airport will expand its travel options, which now include long-distance destinations. ANA Aeroportos de Portugal/Vinci Airports adds, in a statement, that “Porto is increasingly becoming an essential gateway for regional and national tourism”.

ANA continues to work on its commitment to the North region, by attracting more routes and connectivity, essential for the development and sustainability of regional and national tourism and economic activity”, the statement continues.
