The San Francisco International Airport (Highway 101 near the junction of Highway 380) is the primary commercial passenger airport serving San Francisco and the surrounding areas. The airport hosts most international and domestic airlines offering cheap flights from San Francisco. You can also use Orbitz.com to book an alternate flight out of Oakland International Airport (1 Oakland Drive, Oakland) or San Jose International Airport (2065 Airport Boulevard, San Jose).
San Francisco International's parking garages are a 10-minute walk or less from the gates, and there is free shuttle service from the long-term lots. Parking costs anywhere from $18 to $38 per day, depending on the option you choose. If you've used Orbitz.com to book your discount flights, you may have saved enough to justify spending the extra money to use the airport's valet parking service.
A taxi, limousine or shared-ride van to the airport will cost anywhere from $17 to $40. Factor in plenty of extra travel time for the 13-mile ride, as rush-hour traffic can be brutal. You can also use the public BART system or the SamTrans public bus service, both of which will cost you less than $10. Don't forget to use Orbitz.com before you leave to book a rental car in your destination city.
The San Francisco airport has roughly 50 eateries where you can grab a coffee or have a light meal. Most of the restaurants and cafes are located within the terminals past the security checkpoint, but there are a few restaurants before you reach the security gates. Have a great flight to your final destination, and don't forget to use Orbitz.com the next time you're looking for cheap flights from San Francisco.
When you book discount flights to Kinshasa with Orbitz.com, you will land at N'Djili International Airport. The airport is the largest in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and it is located about 10 miles out of the city center on the N1. A number of domestic and international airlines fly into the airport, including Air France, Brussels Airlines and South African Airlines.
The easiest way to get from the airport into the center of the city is by shuttle. Many travel agencies run regular shuttles, which depart from outside of the baggage claim area; there is no need to book in advance. If you have a great deal of luggage, a taxi is a better option. The ride can take up to an hour, depending on traffic, and usually costs up to $50. Rental cars are also available, and you can reserve a car ahead of time on Orbitz.com. Avis, Budget, Europcar, InterRent and Hertz have offices at the airport.
Kinshasa is hot year-round, with relatively stable temperatures. Temperatures hover between 80 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit during most of the year. The coolest month is July, when the temperatures stay around 80 degrees. The city gets very little rain, and the wettest months are October and November.
Kinshasa is a typical, bustling African city. To escape the crowds, visitors often head to the colonial part of town, where the streets are quieter, or the center of the city on a Sunday, when business slows. Other attractions in the city include the traditional African markets, the banks of the Congo River and the vibrant nightlife. After you book flights to Kinshasa on Orbitz.com, you can use the website to find deals on tours of the city.
