Car Rental Portland Airport Maine
Portland International Jetport is located 7km west of downtown Portland, in Cumberland County, Maine. The state's busiest airport, it handles about 1.7 million passengers annually. Its traffic has grown in recent years, due to the introduction of services by low-cost carriers including AirTran Airways and JetBlue. Surveys have revealed Portland International Airport to be the most affordable airport in the region and the third most affordable in New England.
Maine's largest city does not shy away from its port history. Portland embraces its maritime heritage, with warehouse buildings in charming red brick, imposing Victorian shipbuilders' mansions, and winding narrow cobblestone streets. A vibrant waterfront, great museums and galleries, excellent food, and plentiful green space makes this one of the United States' hippest and liveliest small cities. Founded in 1633, it developed into New England's largest port, and the Old Port district remains the town's historic heart, with beautifully restored brick buildings packed with cafes, shops and bars.
