Flights to Columbus

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. Have a great flight to your final destination, and don't forget to use Orbitz.com the next time you're looking for cheap flights from San Francisco.

Port Columbus International Airport

If you're looking for domestic flights to Columbus, Orbitz.com can help you find the best deal. Port Columbus International Airport is located at 4600 International Gateway, approximately 9 miles from downtown Columbus. Seven airlines service the airport-United Airlines, Southwest, US Airways, American Airlines, Delta, Air Canada and AirTran Airways.

Transportation From the Airport

The Central Ohio Transit Authority operates bus services that run from the airport to downtown Columbus. Bus fare costs $2. Taxicabs are also available at the airport. Cab fare costs $2.75 for the first 1/9 of a mile and $.45 for each 2/9 of a mile after that. There is also a $3 surcharge for all taxicabs transporting passengers from the airport. Cab fare to the downtown area typically costs between $23 and $28. If you want access to your own vehicle, Orbitz.com can reserve a rental car for you.

Weather in Columbus

During the winter months, the temperatures in Columbus are typically in the high 20s or low 30s. The weather warms up in the summer, and temperatures are usually in the mid-80s. If you use Orbitz.com to book your trip in April or October, you'll have nice weather and save money, because it's not considered a peak travel time.

Highlights and Attractions

Each year, in July, Columbus hosts the Ohio State Fair. Other area attractions include the Central Ohio Fire Museum, the Columbus Museum of Art and the Wyandotte Winery. The Orbitz.com website does more than find flights to Columbus; it also finds discounts on hotels and allows you to purchase tickets to area attractions.
