Flying out of Athens
Sometimes trying to find cheap airfare can be a challenging task, but Orbtiz.com makes searching through multiple airlines easy by comparing an assortment of airlines fares at the same time. This gives the budget-conscious traveler several options and makes it easy to find and book cheap flights from Athens.
Athens Major Airport
The major airport serving Athens is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, which is located about 22 miles from downtown Athens. Several major airlines service the airport, including Delta, US Airways, British Airways, KLM, Aeroflot, Air France, United, American, and several more. Aegean Airlines and Olympic Air use Athens as a major hub. At Orbitz.com, travelers can compare the prices from most of these airlines, so they receive the best deals and options that suit their needs.
Parking Options at the Airport
The airport has several parking options, including short-term parking, long-term parking, and valet parking. The first 20 minutes are free in the short-term and long-term lots, which is ideal for dropping off passengers. A free shuttle bus will transport passengers to and from the airport terminals.
Transportation to the Airport
Several options are available for people to get to the airport, including taxis, the metro, rental cars, and buses. Taxis do not charge a flat rate as in some cities; instead they charge a metered rate, which is higher during nighttime hours. The metro and the express take 30 to 40 minutes to get downtown, and their prices vary. Car rentals are a more convenient option for people who want to explore the city. Check with Orbitz.com to book your rental and save more money.
Restaurants Located at the Airport
For those who need a snack or drink, the airport has the Aristotle Onassis Lounge, Goldair Handling Cip Lounge, and the Melina Merkouri Lounge. Along with food and drinks, these lounges offer other amenities including showers, television, and fax services.

Though Zurich is a popular destination, it has only one airport that services the city. You still have a choice of when you want to fly, and Orbitz.com can help you pick the best flights to Zurich. Located in the nearby city of Kloten, the airport is less than seven miles from Zurich's city limits and just a short drive from the downtown area. The airport underwent a major renovation in the early 2000s, which resulted in a new terminal, a parking area and a railway system that transports passengers to their airline gate through underground tunnels. Most major international airlines operate out of the airport, including Contact Air, Skyways, Hello, and Delta.
Transportation in Zurich
More than half of Zurich residents and those visiting the city rely on the public transportation system because it's a bargain compared to renting a car. Also known as the ZVV system, it consists of buses, trams, trains and electric-powered trolleys. The city clearly marks the public transit stops along the road, and you can also purchase a ZVV ticket at one of the central hubs. The ticket is your pass to ride any of the public transportation units in the city. You can find the clearly marked public transportation stops at the Zurich Airport, and the maps will show you which units go to your hotel. A ticket will cost less than $10.
Zurich is popular with skiers and outdoor lovers during the winter months because the area gets a high level of snow and temperatures drop below 40 degrees. The humidity and temperatures begin to climb during the spring, and by the time summer arrives, you typically see temperatures between 50 and 70 degrees.
Tourist Hot Spots
Travelers often enjoy the sites around the Main railway station, which includes some of the oldest buildings in the country. Other popular spots include the Zurich Museum of Art, the Zoological Garden, the Swiss National Museum and the Chinese Garden. With Orbitz.com, you can find flights to Zurich, reserve your hotel room, and purchase tickets to attractions that you want to visit in Zurich.
