Flights to Cape Town

The Best DC Airports

Before you call airlines looking for flights from Washington, DC, you should check with Orbitz.com. The two major airports in DC are Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Alaska Airlines, US Airways, and Frontier Airlines handle domestic flights from Ronald Reagan, while Virgin America, ExpressJet Airlines, and Colgan Air operate out of Washington Dulles. Ronald Reagan is only three miles from the downtown area, and Washington Dulles is 26 miles from downtown.

Long-Term Parking Options

The five parking lots at Ronald Reagan offer daily and hourly parking rates, and the airport charges $20 per day for parking in the long-term lots. The economy lot only charges $12 per day, but this lot is open and uncovered. Washington Dulles has two long-term parking lots that charge $17 per day and one economy lot that charges $10 per day. For $30, you can use valet parking.

Public Transportation Choices

The Metrorail and Metrobus make at least one stop at each airport every day. The stops are clearly marked around the city, and you can find maps that help you find the correct line. Taxis are not as low cost as the public transportation options because the drivers charge a pickup fee, baggage fee, fee per mile, and a fee for any time that the driver must wait.

Places to Eat

Both airports offer a range of dining options. Washington Dulles is home to Dulles to Go, Five Guys, Subway, and Wendy's, while Ronald Reagan has Dunkin' Donuts, Euro Cafe, and Jerry's Subs & Pizza. Once you have something to eat, you can browse through the sales at some of the shops surrounding the restaurants. If you want to enjoy your vacation, use Orbitz.com to look for flights from Washington DC.

Cape Town International Airport

It isn't hard to find cheap flights to Cape Town when you use Orbitz.com. The website lists all of the available flights so that you can find the best deal on air travel.

Some of the airlines that service the airport include Air France, British Airways, South African Airways and Virgin Atlantic Airways.

Transportation from the Airport

The Airport MyCiTi Shuttle runs between the airport and the Civic Center in central Cape Town. You can take a taxicab into Cape Town for approximately $20. The only taxi company authorized by the airport is Touch-Down Taxis. If you'd rather have your own vehicle, you can use Orbitz.com to reserve a rental car. The airport houses nine car-rental companies. The rental-car companies are located in front of the Central Terminal Building.

The low temperatures in the summer range from the high-50s to the low 60s, and the high temperatures range from the mid-to-high 70s.
