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.

Benazair Bhutto International Airport

Though the Benazair Bhutto International Airport is in the city of Chaklala, this airport is the main source of cheap flights to Islamabad. The airport is around 20 miles from Islamabad and around 30 minutes from the center of the city. Nearly 20 airlines operate out of this airport, including Kuwait Airways, Oman Air, Nas Air, and Turkish Airlines. If you find that you cannot book a flight on your own, or you have problems reaching the airline of your choice, try Orbitz.com. Orbitz.com makes it easy to book a flight, reserve a hotel room, and even reserve your rental car.

Taxis and Buses

Buses are a popular mode of transportation for travelers because they have air conditioning. Some buses even feature attendants and free drinks or meals. Depending on where you want to go, you might pay up to 1,200 RS. The Regional Transport Authority maintains the public buses in the area, and these buses cost 15 RS for a shorter ride. Renting a taxi is another possibility, but these vehicles do not have air conditioning. You can rent a taxi for up to seven hours for a flat rate of 2,000 RS.

Winters and Summers

While Islamabad does not receive snow, the area does get rain during the winter and temperatures can drop as low as 38°F. The summers are warmer, with temperatures ranging from the high 60s to the high 80s. Some summer days will even see temperatures hitting the 100°F mark.

Destinations in Islamabad

The Faisal Mosque is one of the biggest in the world, making it a popular destination for tourists. The city also boasts Pir Shoawa, where you can see all of the city, and it's home to the Lok Virsa Museum, which gives visitors a short history of Pakistan. When you reach the area by air, you can see some of these sites as you land. The low prices and cheap flights to Islamabad offered by Orbitz.com ensure that almost anyone can afford this trip.
