Finding the right flights from Madrid can be as simple as doing a search at Orbitz.com. The search engine at the Orbtiz.com site combs through current flight schedules to show comparative costs, as well as departure and arrival times, layovers and other issues that make certain flight options more attractive than others. The Madrid-Barajas Airport, located at Avenida de la Hispanidad, 28042 Madrid, is 12 miles from the city center. It's the main hub for Iberia and does business with major airlines, including EasyJet, Delta, Air France, British Airways, Aegean Airlines, Air Europa and others.
Orbitz.com can help travelers find convenient, affordable places on and off site for vacation parking. The airport in Madrid has express parking meant for dropping off and picking up travelers. For the first 30 minutes, the parking is free. Short- and long-term parking lots can be found at each terminal and cost from €9.60 for two hours up to €60 per day for Terminal 2 short-term parking. Long-term parking is available for €18.30 per day. The economy lot requires a shuttle ride back and forth to the terminals but costs only €10.80 per day or €62.80 per week.
For travelers who wish to avoid parking, Orbitz.com can help find special offers on ground transportation to and from Madrid-Barajas Airport. It takes approximately 30 minutes to get there from downtown by car. A credentialed taxi service will charge anywhere from €25 to €30 for the ride, but oftentimes there are taxi drivers inside the terminals offering cheaper rides who do not have the same credentials as those who have signed a contract with the airport. Passengers can also opt for a €2 train ride or take the bus for a similar fee.
There's no need to leave the airport to find an excellent selection of restaurants, counter service diners or bars. Orbitz.com can offer travelers deals on food and air packages, though they might not be dining in-house. The convenience of dining at the airport while waiting for flights from Madrid may be worth the cost, but passengers should expect the cost to be relatively more expensive than similar restaurants found in the city center.
Flying into Oviedo requires a trip to the Asturias Airport, located about 29 miles from the city. Most flights into the airport are domestic, but some international flights to Oviedo are available through connections in London and Paris. The airlines servicing Asturias include EasyJet, Iberia and Vueling, with those services available by reservation through Orbitz.com.
Transportation to the city from the airport after your arrival is best done by intercity bus service due to the distance involved. Bus services are offered through Alsa Coach to Oviedo for about $9 and leave from the airport hourly during most of the day. Taxis can be conveniently found at the taxi rank in front of the terminal for about $0.65 per kilometer during the day or $0.80 per kilometer at night for the 47-km journey to Oviedo.
The weather in Oviedo is a definite draw for visitors, with mildly warm summers that offer relief from the heat of other Spanish cities. The high temperatures during the summer months are rarely above the low 70-degrees Fahrenheit range, though low temperatures during the winters can drop into the low 40s. Dress should be moderately light, with windbreakers or light jackets worn between April and October, and slightly heavier jackets during the winter months. Rainwear is appropriate between October and May, as rain occurs frequently during this period.
Oviedo is a city of churches, containing beautiful examples of Spanish architecture through the centuries that will be appreciated by anyone with an interest in history or architecture. Built in 842 by King Ramiro I, the San Miguel di Lillo is a beautiful Pre-Romanesque building at the Unesco Patrimony of Humanity site. It's a well-preserved example of the period, along with the Santa Maria del Naranco Hall, which was built during the 9th century as part of the city's palace complex. The Cathedral of San Salvador is a bit more modern, built in the 13th century in the city center. It includes several architectural styles, from Pre-Romanesque to Baroque. If sight-seeing isn't enough encouragement to book cheap flights to Oviedo on Orbitz.com, consider the relaxing beaches, such as the Playa de Ballota. As an alternative, the bars in the city are always enjoyable attractions, especially the Baobob in the heart of the city.
