Newark is located 16 miles from Manhattan on Brewster Road in Newark, New Jersey. Numerous airlines service the three airports, including North American, JetBlue and United Airlines.

All three airports have long-term parking options available. JFK and Newark both charge $18 per day for long-term parking. The long-term parking at LaGuardia Airport costs $33 per day for the first two days, and $18 per day for each additional day.

The subway also runs between Manhattan, LaGuardia and JFK. Cab fare from Manhattan runs between $30 and $50, depending on which airport you're heading to.

Dining at the Airports
If you need to grab a bite to eat before your flight, all three airports have on-site restaurants. Some of the dining options include McDonald's, Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks. Using Orbitz.com to find cheap flights from New York means that all of your travel details are handled before you arrive at the airport. This gives you plenty of time to relax and enjoy a meal before your flight.
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.
