Frequently asked questions about flying to Portland, Maine

Portland may be the largest city in the state of Maine, but it’s neither crowded nor busy, and has a laid-back coastal ambience. The summer months from June – August are by far the most popular time to visit. The weather is delightful, warm without being too hot, and there is less rainfall than at other times of the year. Of course, this means that it’s the busiest time of the year, so be prepared to pay more for flights and accommodation. Once September comes around, things quieten down, so fall can be a great time to plan your trip. Between now and November, average daily highs range from 70 – 40 degrees Fahrenheit, so earlier in the fall is usually more comfortable. Winter temperatures can be frigid, with plenty of snow. If you like winter sports, it can be a great time to visit, because you won’t be fighting the crowds and you can enjoy cross-country skiing, ice skating and sledding. If you want to visit Portland in spring, the temperatures range from 25 – 65 degrees Fahrenheit, so pack your warm clothes, especially in March.
