Flights to Dar Es Salaam

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.

Julius Nyerere International Airport

When you decide to visit the city of Dar Es Salaam, you should fly into the Julius Nyerere International Airport, which is the largest airport in the region. More than 20 airlines provide cheap flights to Dar Es Salaam, including Swiss International Air Lines, Turkish Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, and Air Uganda. Even if you never visited the area before, you can quickly find your way around the city because the airport is only 10 kilometers from downtown. If you keep seeing high prices for flights online, you need to visit Orbitz.com. Orbitz offers prices on flights for less than any other travel site.

Driving and More

To really see the city and get to where you want to go, you can rent a car from the airport. Opt for an economy car or a smaller vehicle as the city streets are very narrow. As you leave the airport, look for taxis parked together near the entrance because you can take a taxi downtown for around 15000 Tzs. Daladalas, which are small buses and vans, are another popular option because most rides cost around 300 Tzs.

Warm Year-Round Temperatures

Dar Es Salaam has warmer temperatures throughout the year. The average temperature ranges from the mid-70s to the low 80s in both the summer and winter. You might experience temperatures as high as 89 degrees Fahrenheit and as low as 65 degrees.

Tours and More

The Kunduchi Wet 'N' Wild Water Park is one of the most popular attractions in the region because you can cool down on the fun-filled rides and attractions. Taking tours of ancient ruins, shopping at the Kariakoo Market, and learning more about the area at the Village Museum are other things you might like. You can search for cheap tickets to these attractions at Orbitz.com and find deals on things like hotel rooms and rental cars. If you think that Orbitz.com just offers deals on flights like cheap flights to Dar Es Salaam, you might be surprised at how much you can save on other things that you need.
