Flights to Sydney

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.

J.A. Douglas McCurdy Sydney Airport

J.A. Douglas McCurdy Sydney Airport is located about six miles northeast of Sydney, Nova Scotia, in the community of Reserve Mines. The airport has two regularly scheduled airlines for passengers: Air Jazz and Air St. Pierre. There are also several charter services. Orbitz.com can help in arranging connecting flights to Sydney from any point of origin. Its travel planner allows you to view all flights into Sydney at the same time, so you are able to choose the low fares that you need. WestJet Airlines and Air Canada Express offer flights between Sydney and Toronto from May to October of each year.

Transportation From the Airport

A taxi service from the airport to Sydney is available by using City Wide Taxi. Fares are metered and vary based on your destination. Avis and Budget car rental companies are located in the airport, and you book them at the same time as you book your trip with Orbitz.com.

Weather in Sydney

Sydney has temperatures ranging from the mid-50s to the mid-70s Fahrenheit in the summer months. The temperatures average from the mid-teens to the mid-30s in winter. Sydney only has about two hours of sunshine in December, so the winter months are not the best time to visit the area. There are over fifteen hours of daylight in the summer, so it is the preferred season for travelers.

Things to Do in Sydney

Sydney is known for its annual Celtic Colors Festival where Celtic music is played, and people can celebrate Celtic music and culture. If you visit in October, be sure to catch a few of the shows. You can also explore the town's Scottish roots in the Highland Village where costumed actors bring the period dwellings to life. You can relax with a walk on the waterfront or gamble to your heart's content at casino Nova Scotia.
