    He would pick you up from the air port.

    "He will pick you up from the airport" is probably what you want to say.

    ... that is, if he will. There are contexts where 'would' would be appropriate. For example:
    • Whenever I flew there, he would meet me at the airport.
    • I was waiting there for hours! You said he would meet me at the airport.
    • If I went on a Monday, he would meet me at the airport. On any other day I had to get a taxi.
    • ...
