Flights From Moscow
Moscow is the sixth most populous city in Europe with a population of over 11.5 million, and it is served by five airports: the Sheremetyevo International Airport, Bykovo Airport, Vnukovo International Airport, Ostafevo International Airport and Domodedovo International Airport. The airport used for most international flights from Moscow is the Domodedovo International Airport, located 26 miles from the city center, with the rest primarily handling domestic flights to other Russian destinations and flights to former Soviet states. International carriers operating from Domodedovo include Aeroflot, Air China, Korean Air, British Airways and Delta Airlines. Seats on many of the flights can be reserved online through Orbitz.com.
Parking at the Domodedovo International Airport
Short-term parking is available near the passenger terminal starting at $1.50 per hour. Long-term parking can be found at the long-term car park for around $18 a day.
Transportation to the Domodedovo Airport
Domodedovo Airport is linked to Moscow by a speedway, allowing quick transportation from the city to the airport by car, taxi or bus. The airport also operates the Aeroexpress railway service. The Aeroexpress train takes between 20 and 25 minutes to make the trip from Moscow to the airport at a cost of about $10. The express bus takes about 30 minutes but is less expensive at $3.00. Taxis can be booked anywhere in the city, with costs varying according to starting location.
A Meal Before Departing
A quick meal before departing from Moscow can be eaten at the low-cost fast food restaurants located within the airport. Kroshka-Kartoshka specializes in foil-wrapped baked potatoes with tasty fillings, while Sbarro offers dishes such as lasagna, calzone and stromboli. Indian dishes are available at the Paprika restaurant and Uzbek cuisine at Uzbechka. Several other restaurants are available as well, offering travelers a hearty meal before catching their flights from Moscow.
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.
