Avalon Airport, Moorabbin Airport and Essendon Airport are all much smaller. The main airport is simply called Melbourne Airport and is located about 14 miles outside of the city. It's the second busiest airport in Australia.

Parking at the Airport

Melbourne Airport offers several options for car parking. The facilities include short-term parking, long-term parking, business parking and express parking. A shuttle bus runs between the long-term parking lot and the passenger terminal. With the exception of long-term car parking, all lots include the option for covered spaces.

Transportation to the Airport

SkyBus is Melbourne Airport's shuttle service between downtown Melbourne and the airport. Buses run all day long at 10-minute intervals. A one-way ticket is $17. You can purchase tickets for SkyBus online or at the bus stop. The city of Melbourne also has public transit lines with routes that stop at the terminal. If you're on a tight schedule or just want some quiet time, you can always take a taxi to the drop-off area.

Restaurants at the Airport

Melbourne Airport has a good selection of restaurants, lounges and cafes. You can grab something fast or sit down with fellow travelers at The Fly Bar. When you find cheap flights from Melbourne with Orbitz.com, you'll be able to relax during your trip.

New York Airport Information

There are two major airports, John F. Kennedy International (JFK) and LaGuardia, that service travelers flying into New York City. When you use Orbitz.com to book your flights to New York, you will be able to choose from almost every major domestic and international air passenger carrier. LaGuardia Airport is roughly nine miles east of Manhattan, while JFK is almost 20 miles to the southeast. If you can't find the flight that you want, you can also fly into Newark International Airport, roughly 19 miles northeast of Manhattan.

Ground Transportation in New York

New York has plenty of public transportation, so getting around should be fairly easy. If you fly into LaGuardia, you will have to take a taxi, bus, or shared van for at least a portion of the trip, because there is no rail or subway service from the airport. Expect a cab ride from LaGuardia to Manhattan to cost anywhere from $20 to $40. Although JFK is further from the city, you can hop on the AirTrain, which will take you to the subway or the Long Island Railroad. If you choose to take a cab from JFK into Manhattan, expect to pay $45 or more for the ride. You will also be responsible for any tolls that are incurred during the trip. If you use Orbitz.com to book your hotel, you may be able to find one that offers free shuttle service to and from the airport.
