O'Hare International Airport is located approximately 17 miles northwest of downtown Chicago. Midway International Airport is located on the city's southwest side, approximately eight miles from Chicago's Loop. O'Hare serves as a hub for American Airlines and United Airlines, and Midway is a hub for Southwest Airlines.

Chicago Airport Parking

Daily, hourly, and valet parking are available at O'Hare. Rates vary from $2.00 to $10.00 per hour. An economy parking lot is also available at a rate of $2.00 per hour. Similar parking options and rates apply at Midway.

There are numerous transportation options for getting to and from both O'Hare and Midway. O'Hare can be accessed via regional trains, buses, and local mass transit lines. The CTA Blue Line offers a fast and convenient transportation option to and from this airport. Midway is served by the CTA Orange Line.

By using Orbitz.com, travelers can quickly and easily find low-fare flights from Chicago.

Zurich Airport

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 Weather

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.
