Flights to Portland
Search for cheap airfare to Portland and book a flight to Portland
Portland has in recent years been at or near the top of lists with names like “best place to live” or “most livable city,” so it is no surprise that more and more people have been visiting what used to be just a medium-sized city in a big Western state. The good news is that Portland – and Oregon in general – is still relatively inexpensive to visit. It also happens to be the headquarters for BootsnAll, so we love it here. Why not come see us?
First things first, you have to get here. For most people, that will mean flying into Portland. So, how do you save money when buying airfare to Portland? There are a few tips you can use to save money on air travel anywhere, and they will work for Portland, too. Here are out tips for finding cheap airfare to Portland:
- Visit Portland during the low season – You might not guess it, but even Portland has a high and low season when it comes to tourism. The best weather around here runs from early Summer through early Fall, so if you are looking to save some money you will want to try visiting in the wintertime. Sure, it will probably be raining, but unless your main goal in Portland is to be outdoors all the time, there are still things to see and do here when the weather is bad. Otherwise we would all go crazy!
- Look into what airlines use Portland as a hub – Sometimes choosing an airline that flies in and out of one airport many times each day can net you great results in terms of price cuts. Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air both use Portland International Airport as a hub, so you might want to check with those airlines to see if you can find a discount or two. This does not always work, but it is almost always worth a try.
- Schedule your flight to Portland for midweek – As with any airport, weekend days are going to be the busiest because of the leisure travelers, and Mondays are going to be busiest because of the business travelers. So, if you are able to move your flights around at all, it can be a great idea to book your flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays – it can save you money and also save time in the security lines!
We hope you have a great time in Portland; we love it here, and we think you will, too! For ideas on what to do while you are here, check out our Portland Travel Guide and read Portland travel stories, too.
