Portland International Jetport, previously known as Portland-Westbrook Municipal Airport, is an airport in Portland, Maine. Despite being an international airport and its close proximity to Canada, the airline only facilitates US domestic flights, mainly to destinations on the eastern side of the country. 

Portland International Jetport is the main airport in Maine, with the most passenger traffic in the state. There are currently no airlines that use Portland International Jetport as a hub. 

The airport was built in the 1920s, with the first commercial flight flown to/from the airport in 1931 with a service between Portland and Boston on the now-defunct Boston-Maine Airways.
