If you start looking for flights from Milwaukee, the odds are good that you will fly from General Mitchell International Airport, because the other airports nearby only handle private flights. Orbitz.com has some of the best deals available on flights, since the site searches through thousands of listings based on your search criteria. General Mitchell International Airport is just five miles from the city's business district, making it a short drive from most areas in Milwaukee.

Your Best Transportation Options
Those who do not want to pay for parking at the airport can use the Milwaukee County Transit System. It only costs a few dollars to ride, and you can ride the bus from dozens of stops in the city. The airport has its own shuttle system that picks up travelers from the stop near the front of the airport to transport them to the terminal.
Aiport Parking Options
With three major parking areas, the General Mitchell International Airport makes it easy to park your car. One garage has six floors with space for rental cars, hourly parking, and daily parking. The other two parking lots are only open for hourly parking. The cost ranges from $2 per hour to $12 per hour for the daily lots. If you park in one of the hourly lots, you will pay $22 for 24 hours of parking.

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.
