Flights to Tampa
Gainesville Airport Information
Whether you are a University of Florida student headed home or simply embarking on a vacation adventure, Orbitz.com can help you find cheap flights from Gainesville. You take off from the Gainesville Regional Airport, which is served by American Airlines, American Eagle, Delta, United and US Airways. You might be tempted to fly out of one of the area's larger airports, but you would then face a 120-mile drive to the Orlando International Airport or an 80-mile drive to the Jacksonville International Airport before you even start your trip.
Airport Parking in Gainesville
The Gainesville Regional Airport has plenty of available parking just a short walk from the terminal. The short-term lot charges up to $12 per day, while the long-term lot charges $9 per day or $55 per week. There are also several off-site parking facilities that offer free shuttle service to and from the airport. Check your vacation planner with Orbitz.com before you leave to make sure you have chosen the best parking option based on the length of your trip to help you stay within your budget.
Ground Transportation in Gainesville
The Regional Transit Bus Service (RTS) is the most economical way to get to the Gainesville airport. University of Florida students can also pick up the route #25 bus on Monday through Friday. There are several taxi companies that offer transportation to the airport, but if you purchased your air tickets through Orbitz.com, you may have saved enough to warrant splurging on a private car service to get you to the airport in style.
Restaurants in Gainesville
The Gainesville airport has dedicated amenities to serve business and leisure travelers, including Wi-Fi and an ATM, but dining opportunities are limited. Tailwind has a full-service restaurant and bar in the public area before the security checkpoint, but within the terminal, options are more limited. There is a full-service bar in the gate area, but the only food available is grab-and-go snacks. Enjoy your trip, wherever your travels take you, and remember to use Orbitz.com the next time you need to find cheap flights from Gainesville.
