Finding Flights from Washington DC to San Diego

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. If you want to enjoy your vacation, use Orbitz.com to look for flights from Washington DC.

Flights to San Diego

San Diego International Airport

The San Diego International Airport is located on North Harbor Drive, approximately three miles from downtown San Diego. The airport has hubs for 20 different airlines, including Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, British Airways, JetBlue and Southwest Airlines. The Orbitz.com website searches flights from all available airlines and displays the results, so you can choose a flight that fits your travel needs and budget.

Parking and Transportation

The San Diego International Airport doesn't allow curbside parking. If you're being picked up from the airport, you'll need to pay for parking. Parking costs $2 for every half hour, with a maximum of $28 per day. The airport offers complimentary shuttle services from the parking lot to the airport terminals. Amtrak and the Metro Bus run between the airport and downtown San Diego every 15 minutes. You can also reserve a taxicab at any of the airport's transportation plazas. Orbitz.com can reserve you a rental car for the duration of your trip. The airport has courtesy phones located near baggage claim, so you can request shuttle service to the car rental company as soon as you arrive.

Dining at the Airport

If you need to grab a quick bite to eat when you arrive, the airport has numerous restaurants, including Monet's California Deli, Pizza Uno, McDonald's and Cramer's Deli.
