The official name of the airport of the Portuguese city of Porto is Francisco Sá Carneiro. It is named after the country's prime minister who died in 1980 when his plane crashed. The airport is located 11 kilometres to the north-west of Porto. It is the third largest airport of Portugal (in terms of the number of passengers). In 2004, it processed 3 million passengers. Last year, the terminal was expanded to be able to deal with the growth in the number of passengers.
The airport is easy to reach from the motorway between Lisbon and Vigo. There were plans for the construction of a metro line in 2005, but the project has been postponed indefinitely. Passengers who want to use public transport can take the bus that departs every 30 minutes for the centre of Porto.
The airport has a limited number of restaurants, but there are cafés and shops throughout the entire terminal. There is a duty-free shop and there is a reasonable number of shops with local products from the region. There are three lounges and there is a meeting room. There is also a bank, a money exchange service, a post office and ATM machines.
In the aviation industry Porto Airport is indicated by the abbreviations OPO (IATA airport code) and LPPR (ICAO airport code).
