When you book cheap flights from Cochin, or Kochi, which is located in the Indian province of Kerala, with Orbitz.com, you will select from a wide choice of flights that depart from the modern Cochin International Airport. The airport is actually located in Nedumbassery, about 20 miles from the center of Kochi, and it serves about 20 regular and budget airlines that offer domestic as well as international flights.
The Cochin International Airport parking facility has space for 1500 vehicles. The rate for parking at the airport is 20 Indian rupees per day.
The main alternative to driving is taking a city bus to the airport. These depart from central points in the city, such as Fort Kochi and the Emakulam railway station. These are not express buses, and the ride may take as long as an hour and 40 minutes. The last bus departs from the city at 6:55 p.m., but city taxis are available to the airport at any time of day or night. A taxi ride from the center of the city to the airport takes about one-half hour. Some hotels that you can book through Orbitz.com offer hotel shuttles to the airport, and this information is included on the travel planner listing for each hotel.
There is an Oberoi restaurant in the departure lounge of the Cochin International Airport, and there are vending machines and snack bars as well. You can enjoy a full meal, or just have some tea, coffee or a soft drink, in the pleasant atmosphere of the departures hall. You may want to stop at the Cochin airport duty free shop before you board the plane for one of the cheap flights from Cochin that you booked through Orbitz.com.
On your next trip to the Pacific Northwest, use Orbitz to find low-cost domestic and international flights to Seattle. The primary airport is the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, more commonly known as Sea-Tac, located roughly 15 miles south of downtown Seattle. The Boeing Field-King County International Airport is less than 10 miles south of the city, but flights into this airport are generally more limited and a bit more expensive.
You will have several public transportation options once you land in Seattle, including Link Light Rail and King County Metro Transit. There are also public taxis, share-a-ride shuttles and private car services ready to bring you to your final destination. Expect to pay a fare of between $35 and $45 from Sea-Tac into downtown Seattle, and roughly half of that from the Boeing Field airport. Use Orbitz.com to plan your trip, and you will be able to either rent a car or choose a hotel that has free shuttle service to and from the airport.
Seattle has a mild climate, with winter temperatures usually ranging from the mid-30s to the mid-40s and summer temperatures that rarely go above the mid-70s. November and December usually have a fair amount of rainfall, but the rest of the year is fairly dry. Because cool nights occur year round, plan a wardrobe that you can layer to accommodate the fluctuating temperatures.
Visitors to Seattle have no shortage of things to see and do. Some of the most famous landmarks include the Space Needle, the site of the original Starbucks in Pike Place Market and Bill Gates' house on Lake Washington.
