Portland International Airport Information

The Portland International Airport is just a few miles away from downtown Portland, Oregon. It is located on the border between Oregon and Washington, with the Columbia River separating the two states. The airport was originally located on Swan Island, which is northwest of the city of Portland. It was fully opened in 1930. A few years later, it was discovered that the airport did not have enough room to grow. The city council of Portland purchased 700 acres of land to build a new airport. The new airport opened next to the Columbia River and was named the Portland-Columbia Airport. It is known today as the Portland International Airport. After it opened, the airport received a lot of air traffic and passengers. The additional business resulted in building a number of facilities. One of the facilities was a new terminal, which was built in 1959. It was renovated during the 1980s.

The main terminal in the international airport in Portland is shaped like an "H." There are five concourses in the terminal. They are Concourses A, B, C, D and E.
