Flights to Nanjing

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.

Nanjing Lukou International Airport

Airlines served by Nanjing Lukou International Airport include Hainan Airlines, United Eagle Airlines, Dragon Air, and Asiana Airlines.

Transportation from the Airport

The most economical way to get from the airport to your hotel is taking a shuttle bus into downtown Nanjing. Buses are also available to take you to nearby cities, including Yangzhou, Shuyang, and Jiangyin. You can also opt to hire a taxi from the stand on the first floor of the arrivals terminal. Because English is not widely spoken, having a printout of your hotel name and address in Chinese characters is advisable for non-Chinese speakers.

Weather in Nanjing

Nanjing is a subtropical climate, so the city experiences distinct seasons and frequent rain. Winter temperatures average in the 30s, and the summer temperatures average in the high 80s. Spring and fall have mild weather, although the spring in particular can be extremely rainy.

What to Do in Nanjing
