Flights to Fort Lauderdale

Most flights to Fort Lauderdale arrive at Fort Lauderdale - Hollywood International Airport, although many corporate flyers choose Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport in downtown Fort Lauderdale for private flights. Travelers on commercial flights to Fort Lauderdale will touch down at Fort Lauderdale International, located in Dania Beach about three miles southwest of Fort Lauderdale's central business area and close to Hollywood. The airport is a gateway to Caribbean destinations and is the largest hub for Spirit Airlines. Airport amenities include free Wi-Fi, luggage storage, and duty free shops for those on international flights. Upon arrival on Fort Lauderdale flights, passengers can either rent cars at the airport or hail taxis or buses waiting at the terminals.

Fort Lauderdale Weather

When packing for flights to Fort Lauderdale, travelers should keep in mind that southern Florida experiences high temperatures year round, including the winter months. Due to high humidity and heat in the summer, it is recommended that visitors schedule their vacations between November and May. During this time, temperatures generally stay under 80F and rain is infrequent. In the summer, heat and humidity create perceived temperatures as high as 110F, and rain is frequent and heavy, particularly from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. Travelers on Fort Lauderdale flights in the summer should pack sunscreen, as UV rays skyrocket in May-June.

Getting Around Fort Lauderdale

After deplaning Fort Lauderdale flights, travelers have several options for ground transportation in the city. One of the easiest ways to travel in Fort Lauderdale is by bus via the Broward County Transit. Travelers can pay for buses per trip for $1.50 a person or buy a $3.50 day pass. A ten day pass for $13 is also available. The Sun Trolley is often the preferred vehicle for tourists, as it carries passengers from the beach to the famous Las Olas Boulevard downtown and back, often for no fee at all. There is plenty of parking in Fort Lauderdale, but Florida tolls are costly for drivers without SunPass. Miami is only a 21 mile drive south of Fort Lauderdale International Airport.

Fort Lauderdale Attractions

Immediately after touching down on flights to Fort Lauderdale, travelers will be within miles of the rolling beaches for which the city is famous. Fort Lauderdale is also home to a wealth of museums, parks, and tourist activities that make it a popular destination for adults and children alike. Prominent attractions include:
