Flights to Dubai

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.

Buses run regular routes throughout the city, servicing most of the hotels within the city center, and an automated train runs at 10-minute intervals between all 10 stations in the city. If taking the train, you'll be limited to only two pieces of luggage.

The Weather in Dubai

Dubai enjoys a hot and arid climate throughout the year. During the summers, temperatures average between 80 degrees Fahrenheit at night and 108 degrees during the day. Winter provides some escape from the intense summer heat, with temperatures running between 57 degrees at night and 73 degrees in the daytime. Clothing during the summer should be very light and airy to handle both the heat and humidity of the city. During the winter, a light jacket may be required for colder nights.
