Porto Santo Airport (Portuguese: Aeroporto do Porto Santo) (IATA: PXO, ICAO: LPPS) is an airport located 2 km (1.2 mi) north northwest of Porto Santo on Porto Santo Island, Madeira. It has a 3,000 m × 45 m (9,843 ft × 148 ft) asphalt/concrete runway, with no ILS equipment as of 2011, but with VOR and NDB approaches available.
The island of Porto Santo was the first of the Madeira Islands to obtain an airport.
The airport's infrastructure has improved over time, with increases to the runway length and in ramp surface. The last improvements to the airport structure were finalized on August 28, 1995, with the inauguration of a new passenger terminal and a new increase in runway length, which then reached 3,000 m (9,800 ft). The runway was also re-paved.
