Portland International Jetport is a public airport located two miles (3 km) west of the central business district of Portland, in Cumberland County, Maine, United States. It is owned by the City of Portland. A significant portion of the Jetport, including the main runway, is located in the neighboring city of South Portland.

This regional airport serves much of Maine and is the busiest airport in the state. In 2007, the airport handled a record 1,648,568 passengers, up 17.0% from the previous year. Recently, the Jetport has benefited from service by low-cost carriers such as JetBlue and AirTran Airways. A survey conducted in June 2011 found PWM to be the most affordable airport in the region, and the third most affordable in New England. PWM is currently in the process of expanding and updating its terminal to allow more airline service.
