Flights to Columbus

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.

Port Columbus International Airport

If you're looking for domestic flights to Columbus, Orbitz.com can help you find the best deal. Port Columbus International Airport is located at 4600 International Gateway, approximately 9 miles from downtown Columbus. Seven airlines service the airport-United Airlines, Southwest, US Airways, American Airlines, Delta, Air Canada and AirTran Airways.

Transportation From the Airport

The Central Ohio Transit Authority operates bus services that run from the airport to downtown Columbus. Bus fare costs $2. Taxicabs are also available at the airport. Cab fare costs $2.75 for the first 1/9 of a mile and $.45 for each 2/9 of a mile after that. There is also a $3 surcharge for all taxicabs transporting passengers from the airport. Cab fare to the downtown area typically costs between $23 and $28. If you want access to your own vehicle, Orbitz.com can reserve a rental car for you.

Weather in Columbus

During the winter months, the temperatures in Columbus are typically in the high 20s or low 30s. The weather warms up in the summer, and temperatures are usually in the mid-80s. If you use Orbitz.com to book your trip in April or October, you'll have nice weather and save money, because it's not considered a peak travel time.

Highlights and Attractions

Each year, in July, Columbus hosts the Ohio State Fair. Other area attractions include the Central Ohio Fire Museum, the Columbus Museum of Art and the Wyandotte Winery. The Orbitz.com website does more than find flights to Columbus; it also finds discounts on hotels and allows you to purchase tickets to area attractions.
