Flights to Johannesburg

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.

Airports in Johannesburg

A young and dynamic city, Johannesburg is a transit point connecting more popular tourist destinations like Cape Town and Kruger National Park. The tourism of the city bloomed after passing visitors discovered its beauty. Long and interconnecting flights to Johannesburg are made simple by using Orbitz.com.

There are four airports in the Johannesburg area: O.R. Tambo International Airport, Lanseria Airport, Rand Airport and Grand Central Airport. ORTIA is the nearest airport to Johannesburg and is roughly 14 miles east of the city. It is the hub to major airlines like Air France, British Airways, Singapore Airlines and South African Airways. Lanseria Airport and Grand Central Airport are both privately owned international airports and handle private and chartered flights.

Transportation from O.R. Tambo International Airport

Arriving passengers can easily switch from international terminals to domestic terminals through the Gautrain rail transit system. The transit system also links the airport to Sandton, the main business district and a popular tourist destination in the metro. You can also reserve car rental services on Orbitz.com prior to arriving in the airport for hassle-free transportation. Five bus lines also pass through ORTIA twice a day. Private bus companies run to and from the airport and link passengers to Johannesburg's central business district.

Weather in Johannesburg

Winter in Johannesburg begins in May and is considered the sunniest, albeit the coldest, part of the year. Frost can be experienced on occasional nights, and temperatures can drop to 4 degrees Celsius. Rainfall occurs during the summer months and can bring about afternoon thunderstorms.

Major Attractions in Johannesburg

Johannesburg is home to some of the tallest buildings in Africa, including the Sentech Tower and the Carlton Centre. Johannesburg is also regarded as one of the greenest cities in the world because of the millions of trees planted within the city. Many tourists enjoy shopping in the upscale shopping malls like the Nelson Mandela Square and Sandton City. Johannesburg is dedicated to wildlife preservation and is home to the Lion Park nature reserve and the De Wildt Cheetah Centre. If you like the fusion of business and wildlife in one city, you can check your planner and reserve budget flights to Johannesburg on Orbitz.com.
