Flights from Stavanger
Stavanger Airport in Sola, Norway
Stavanger Airport is the third busiest airport in Norway. You can book flights from Stavanger in advance with Orbitz.com to ensure low-cost air tickets and great deals. The airport is roughly seven miles southwest of Stavanger, or approximately 20 to 30 minutes from the city's center. Among the airlines providing service to the airport are airBaltic, Atlantic Airways, British Airways, Eastern Airways, Lufthansa, KLM, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Scandinavian Airlines and Wizz Air.
Parking at the Airport
Stavanger Airport provides plenty of parking spaces, about 5,000 in total, and is guarded 24 hours a day. Short-term and long-term parking options are available. The airport has adapted a credit-card payment system, which allows drivers to open the parking gate using a credit card when entering and exiting the parking area. The airport honors Visa, Diners, Eurocard, Am-Ex and Shell Fuel credit cards.
Transportation to the Airport
The airport shuttle bus provides convenient transport to and from the airport. The shuttle stops in downtown Stavanger every 20 minutes during standard days and every 30 minutes during summer, Easter and Christmas holidays. Another transport mode is Bus No. 9, which runs every 30 minutes to the airport from downtown Stavanger, Sola, Forus and Sandes. It runs every 60 minutes during the abovementioned holidays. It is cheaper than taking the airport shuttle bus, but each passenger can only carry one piece of luggage. If you are far from the city and have more than one piece of luggage, the easiest and fastest way to the airport is to take a taxi.
Restaurants at the Airport
Pulpit Rock Café is located before the airport security check and serves hot and cold meals, sandwiches and refreshments. There are also plenty of restaurants, snack bars and cafes beyond the security area, including La Baguette, Peppes Pizza, Brisen Bar, Simply Good, Pronto Pronto and Barometer. A large 7-Eleven kiosk is located on the ground floor in the arrival hall. You can find air ticket discounts and sales when you book your flights from Stavanger with Orbitz.com.

New York Airport Information
There are two major airports, John F. Kennedy International (JFK) and LaGuardia, that service travelers flying into New York City. When you use Orbitz.com to book your flights to New York, you will be able to choose from almost every major domestic and international air passenger carrier.

If you can't find the flight that you want, you can also fly into Newark International Airport, roughly 19 miles northeast of Manhattan.
Ground Transportation in New York
New York has plenty of public transportation, so getting around should be fairly easy. If you fly into LaGuardia, you will have to take a taxi, bus, or shared van for at least a portion of the trip, because there is no rail or subway service from the airport. Expect a cab ride from LaGuardia to Manhattan to cost anywhere from $20 to $40. Although JFK is further from the city, you can hop on the AirTrain, which will take you to the subway or the Long Island Railroad. If you choose to take a cab from JFK into Manhattan, expect to pay $45 or more for the ride. You will also be responsible for any tolls that are incurred during the trip. If you use Orbitz.com to book your hotel, you may be able to find one that offers free shuttle service to and from the airport.
