Flights from Washington DC
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.

Flights to Gothenburg
The Top Gothenburg Airports
Most flights to Gothenburg arrive at the Gothenburg-Landvetter Airport or the Gothenburg City Airport. The Gothenburg City Airport is the smallest of the two, and it only has three airlines that provide flights. The Gothenburg-Landvetter Airport is the larger of the two, with over a dozen companies offering flights. OLT Express, Turkish Airlines, Air France and Air Berlin are just a few airlines that handle flights at this airport. You shouldn't need to go with an unknown airline to get a bargain, so Orbitz.com provides cheap prices on flights from some of the top airlines.
Using Public Transportation
Public transportation is a great option for travelers because Gothenburg has a system that includes trains, trams and buses. Look around the airport and at local businesses for a blue flag with the transportation logo on the front. These flags show tourists where they can buy tickets for the system. The short-term travel cards let you travel through specific areas in the city without paying any additional fees.
Cold Winters and Sunny Summers
Winters in Gothenburg are often cold, as temperatures can drop as low as one degree Celsius, and the sun is only out for eight hours or less. The summers bring more sunshine with some days having 18 hours of sunlight. The sun can also provide temperatures in the low 20s.
Your Best Bets
Finding fun things to do in a new town is sometimes hard, but Gothenburg offers a few things suitable for everyone in your family. Universeum and the Botanical Garden let you learn more about nature and wildlife, while Liseberg Park is an old-fashioned amusement park with rides, food stands and live entertainment. Depending on what you want to do, you might find reduced price tickets from Orbitz.com. Even if you cannot find cheap tickets, you can still look at the top flights to Gothenburg and get more information about this travel hotspot.
