Flights from San Francisco to Ottawa

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.

Ottawa International Airport

Ottawa International Airport is located at 1000 Airport Way, approximately eight miles from downtown Ottawa. Fourteen airlines service the airport, including US Airways, WestJet, United Airlines and Thomas Cook Airlines.

Transportation from the Airport

You can take a taxi from the airport to downtown Ottawa for approximately $29. Buses also run between the airport and downtown. You can purchase bus tickets from the Ground Transportation Desk on Level 1. If you'd rather have your own vehicle while you're in Ottawa, you can make reservations for a rental car using Orbitz.com. Five rental car companies are located in the Parkside, directly across from the terminal.

Climate in Ottawa

The summer months in Ottawa are warm and humid, with temperatures that range from 86 degrees Fahrenheit to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. The winter months are cold and the city sees a lot of snow and ice. You can expect temperatures to drop well below freezing at night and stay just above freezing during the day. If you want to have decent weather and avoid the peak travel time, use Orbitz.com to book your trip during the late spring or early fall.
