Breathe in the crisp, ocean air, and feel the essence of the quintessential New England locale when you arrive in Portland. Flights to Portland land travellers in Maine’s biggest city. A fine blend of laid-back environment paired with a lively waterfront and stunning 19th century atmosphere conceives a multi-faceted downtown, perfect for day trips or week-long getaways. 

For the bohemian traveller, head to the romantic downtown area characterized by the old seaside ports, restored brick buildings, and bustling cafes, shops, and bars. Galleries filled with ocean-inspired art line cobblestone streets, and Victorian neighbourhoods bring travellers booking flights to Portland straight back to tea parties and parlours. The cobblestones and bricks are here for a reason: In the late 1800s, fires ravaged the city and left thousands of residents homeless. Vowing to never let it happen again, the community rebuilt Portland completely in stone to safeguard it. Now, beautiful array of cobblestone rock, cobblestone, and brick, establish the feel of New England.

Portland climate

New England offers four very distinct seasons that entice travellers to book flights to Portland all year round. Depending on when you plan your Portland flights, you will be in for a unique experience. Between November and March, snow falls and temperatures drop to around 7 degrees Celsius, and sometimes below freezing levels. From April to June, it escalates to around 13 degrees C, and after that, June, July, and August roast in over 30 degrees, which makes for perfect conditions to linger portside. Spanning the length of September – October, fall lures people to book flights to Portland to catch glimpses of the unforgettable vivid views of foliage.

When is the best time to fly to Portland?

If you book flights to Portland in June, you’ll experience the Old Port Street Festival, which begun in the 1970s, and is held annually one the first Sunday in June. Outdoor performances, and musical genres of folk, world, and rock linger on every street corner. Parades, kid rides, and street food are just a few reasons to get outside and enjoy the heat while it lasts. 

Peak Season

Summer and fall are the best times to book flights to Portland. If you’re looking for beachside bliss, go for a sail along the Atlantic Ocean on the 4th of July. If you’re looking for crisper weather and a chance to bundle up among reds, oranges, and yellows, stroll the cobblestone streets during the spectacular autumn showcase. 

Off-Peak Season: 

Although it’s easy to appreciate the diversity of all of Maine’s four seasons, less travellers book flights to Portland during the winter, since freezing temperatures hamper outdoor activity, and snowfall makes getting around a difficult feat.

Other buses can take you to Brunswick, Lewiston, Augusta, Waterville, Bangor or Bar Harbour. The Amtrak trains also run between Portland and Boston several times a day. Trips take only two hours, which is much quicker than the buses. Ferry cruises leave Portland for Bailey Island or Nova Scotia several times a week in the summer.
