Airports in Maine
The Bangor International Airport is one of the fastest growing airports in Maine
. The airport has more than sixty flights taking off each day. The airport is disabled-friendly and has TDD phones in its terminals. It has shops, ATMs, restaurants, porter services, locker facilities and personnel who readily provide assistance to those who need it. Currently, the Bangor International Airport is being served by American, United, Delta and Allegiant. While American and Delta provide daily, non-stop service to Detroit, LaGuardia, Washington DC’s Reagan National and Philadelphia, Allegiant is indulged in providing multiple weekly flights to Orlando/Sanford and Tampa/St. Petersburg. Last, but definitely not the least, United provided just a seasonal daily flight service from Chicago and Newark. As the leader in Trans-Atlantic tech stops, Bangor International Airport along with Bangor Aviation Services are truly professional and cost-efficient.
Here’s a look at three of the popular airports in Maine:
- Portland International Jetport (PWM)

The announcement was made in accordance to ACI’s annual Airport Service Quality Awards. In addition to this, the Portland International Jetport has also ranked globally in the overall customer satisfaction for the airports that are serving fewer than 2 million passengers. Also, the airport has been recognized by Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards as one of the Best Airports in the US.
