Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport (IATA: OPO, ICAO: LPPR) or simply Porto Airport is an international airport near Porto (Oporto), Portugal. It is located 11 km (6.8 mi) northwest of the Clérigos Tower in the centre of Porto, in the municipalities of Maia, Matosinhos and Vila do Conde and is run by ANA – Aeroportos de Portugal. The airport is currently the second-busiest in the country, based on aircraft operations; and the second-busiest in passengers, based on Aeroportos de Portugal traffic statistics, after Lisbon Airport and before Faro Airport.
The airport is a base for easyJet, Ryanair, TAP Air Portugal and its subsidiary TAP Express. The airport around Porto opened in 1945 and was initially known as Pedras Rubras Airport, after the name for the locality where the airport is located: Pedras Rubras (“red rocks”). It is still known by this name in the region.
The land on which the airport was built was originally agricultural, characterised by rich soils that permitted the cultivation of various cereals. It was renamed in 1990 after former Portuguese prime minister, Francisco de Sá Carneiro, who died in an aero-plane crash when he was traveling to this airport on 4 December 1980. (Source: Wikipedia)
