San Francisco International Airport Information
The San Francisco International Airport (Highway 101 near the junction of Highway 380) is the primary commercial passenger airport serving San Francisco and the surrounding areas. The airport hosts most international and domestic airlines offering cheap flights from San Francisco. You can also use Orbitz.com to book an alternate flight out of Oakland International Airport (1 Oakland Drive, Oakland) or San Jose International Airport (2065 Airport Boulevard, San Jose).
Parking at San Francisco International Airport
San Francisco International's parking garages are a 10-minute walk or less from the gates, and there is free shuttle service from the long-term lots. Parking costs anywhere from $18 to $38 per day, depending on the option you choose. If you've used Orbitz.com to book your discount flights, you may have saved enough to justify spending the extra money to use the airport's valet parking service.
Ground Transportation Information
A taxi, limousine or shared-ride van to the airport will cost anywhere from $17 to $40. Factor in plenty of extra travel time for the 13-mile ride, as rush-hour traffic can be brutal. You can also use the public BART system or the SamTrans public bus service, both of which will cost you less than $10. Don't forget to use Orbitz.com before you leave to book a rental car in your destination city.
Restaurant Options at the Airport
The San Francisco airport has roughly 50 eateries where you can grab a coffee or have a light meal. Most of the restaurants and cafes are located within the terminals past the security checkpoint, but there are a few restaurants before you reach the security gates.

Cairo International Airport
Many people dream of taking a vacation to Cairo, and if you wait to look for flights to Cairo, you might find yourself overpaying for your flight. With Orbitz.com, you can book your domestic flight anytime you want without breaking your budget, since Orbitz offers deals and discounts that other sites can't offer. Located less than 10 miles from downtown, the Cairo International Airport handles most of the air traffic leaving from and arriving in the city.
Where to Go
After arriving in Cairo, you might feel a little confused about what to do next. The Cairo Transport Authority maintains a series of buses that stop at the airport, popular landmarks, and other areas in the city. Micro-buses and taxis are another option. Micro-buses are like small minivans that can hold several people. The small buses and taxis wait for travelers at the entrance to the terminal, providing inexpensive rides downtown.
Dust Storms and More
Dust storms are most common in the month of April and temperatures fluctuate depending on the season. If you visit in the summer, you should expect temperatures in the low 20s, with a high around 32 degrees Celsius. Winter temperatures can drop to single digits, with highs in the low teens.
Ancient Ruins on Display
Tourists flock to Cairo for the ancient ruins on display. Orbitz.com can give you access to a discount on some of these sites, such as Dahshur, Keops Pyramid, and Kefre. Even if you prefer indoor attractions, like the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, you can still find deals. After finding flights to Cairo, look for low prices on tickets to attractions you want to see on your trip.
