The two best options for traveling to Portland, Maine from abroad include flying to the Portland International Jetport (PWM), or flying to Logan Airport (BOS) in Boston, Massachusetts and traveling by bus from Logan Airport to Portland. Concord Coach Lines provides bus rides from Logan Airport to the Portland Transportation Center many times throughout the day, which typically take 2-2 1⁄2 hours. Once here, hotel shuttles can be arranged to provide transportation to your hotel.
