Finding the right flights from Madrid can be as simple as doing a search at Orbitz.com. The search engine at the Orbtiz.com site combs through current flight schedules to show comparative costs, as well as departure and arrival times, layovers and other issues that make certain flight options more attractive than others. The Madrid-Barajas Airport, located at Avenida de la Hispanidad, 28042 Madrid, is 12 miles from the city center. It's the main hub for Iberia and does business with major airlines, including EasyJet, Delta, Air France, British Airways, Aegean Airlines, Air Europa and others.
Orbitz.com can help travelers find convenient, affordable places on and off site for vacation parking. The airport in Madrid has express parking meant for dropping off and picking up travelers. For the first 30 minutes, the parking is free. Short- and long-term parking lots can be found at each terminal and cost from â‚¬9.60 for two hours up to â‚¬60 per day for Terminal 2 short-term parking.

For travelers who wish to avoid parking, Orbitz.com can help find special offers on ground transportation to and from Madrid-Barajas Airport. It takes approximately 30 minutes to get there from downtown by car. A credentialed taxi service will charge anywhere from â‚¬25 to â‚¬30 for the ride, but oftentimes there are taxi drivers inside the terminals offering cheaper rides who do not have the same credentials as those who have signed a contract with the airport. Passengers can also opt for a â‚¬2 train ride or take the bus for a similar fee.
There's no need to leave the airport to find an excellent selection of restaurants, counter service diners or bars. Orbitz.com can offer travelers deals on food and air packages, though they might not be dining in-house. The convenience of dining at the airport while waiting for flights from Madrid may be worth the cost, but passengers should expect the cost to be relatively more expensive than similar restaurants found in the city center.
Finding flights to Paris has never been easier than it is on Orbitz.com. The website's search engines scour multiple airlines at once to find convenient, cheap flights that fit into your busy schedule.
Two airports serve the city of Paris. Charles de Gaulle Airport, or Roissy, sits 16 miles northeast of Paris and is France's busiest airport. Roissy sees more than 60 million passengers annually, and it is the main hub for Air France. Paris-Orly Airport sits eight miles south of the city and serves more than 27 million passengers every year, mostly domestic travelers. You can search both airports simultaneously on Orbitz.com, making it easy to book cheap flights to Paris.
Paris features an expansive subway system, and RER trains travel from both airports into the city. While you're there, you can take the Paris Metro or its connecting trains anywhere you want to go, including the outskirts of the city and other European countries. Public bus transportation, shuttle services and taxis also serve both Paris airports. Orbitz.com can arrange transportation when you book flights to Paris or provide information about renting a car.
