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

Flights to Chennai

Chennai International Airport

The Chennai International Airport is located on Tirusulam, approximately 9 miles south of downtown Chennai. Numerous airlines service the airport, including British Airways, Air France, Air Canada and Korean Air. The Orbitz.com website makes it easy to find cheap flights to Chennai. The website searches flights from all available airlines to find the best deals on your air ticket.

Transportation From the Airport

The airport has bus services that run from the airport into the city center. Three rail lines also service the airport; however, the elevated trains make a circle around Chennai, so if you decide to travel via train, you'll have to switch to bus transportation once you get closer to the city. If you want access to your own vehicle, you can use the Orbitz.com website to arrange for a rental car.

Weather in Chennai

Chennai has a tropical climate. Temperatures average from the mid-80s to the high 90s throughout the year. While the weather sometimes gets cooler, it's rare for the city to see temperatures below 70º F. December and January are considered peak travel months because the weather isn't unbearably hot. However, you'll save money by traveling during the off-peak travel season. If you use Orbitz.com to plan your trip in February or March, you'll have nice weather and get better deals on your travel expenses.

Highlights and Attractions

Kapaleeshwar Temple, San Thome Church and Crocodile Bank are some of the popular attractions in Chennai. The Orbitz.com website does more than find cheap flights to Chennai. You can use the website to purchase tickets to area attractions or schedule guided tours of the city.
