About  OPO airport:

The airport was renamed for former Portuguese Prime Minister, Francisco de Sá Carneiro, who was killed in an airplane crash as he was heading to this airport: until this time it was known as Pedras Rubras Airport.

Francisco de Sá Carneiro airport is limited between the municipalities of Matosinhos (to the south and west) and Vila do Conde (to the north) and Maia (to the east): it covers the parishes of Santa Cruz do Bispo, Perafita and Lavra (in Matosinhos); Aveleda andVilar do Pinheiro (Vila do Conde); and Vilha Nova da Telha and Moreira (Maia).

It includes an area of between 72 metres (236 ft) in the extreme south and 43 metres (141 ft) in the north. The southern portion of the airport intersects the hydrographic watershed of the Leça River, while the north is crossed by effluents of Onda River. The lands on which the airport was built were originally agricultural, characterized by rich soils that permitted cultivation of various cereals.
