Flights From Bucharest

For those looking to leave the lovely Romanian capital city, two international airports are available. Flights from Bucharest are available at either Henri Coanda International Airport located about 10 from the city center at 224 E, Calea Bucureştilor, Otopeni, Ilfov, or at Aurel Vlaicu International Airport, which serves VIP passengers and lies closer to the center of town at only five miles away on 40, Şoseaua Bucharest Ploieşti, district 1, Buchares. Henri Coanda is serviced by major commercial airlines such as Olympic Air, Austrian Airlines, Air France or British Airways while Aurel Vlaicu attracts private and chartered planes. Seats on flights originating from Henri Coanda can usually be booked through Orbitz.com.

Parking at Henri Coanda Airport

There are two parking areas available at Henri Coanda located in front of the terminal. Long-term parking begins at about $11 a day, with the per-day costs lowering with three or more days. Short-term parking is about $0.85 for 30 minutes at the arrivals terminal.

Transportation to the Airports

Transportation to catch your flight at Henri Conada can be secured in several ways. A direct train service is available from the Bucharest North railway station to the airport's train station at a cost of about $1.70, with a shuttle bus providing transportation from the airport station to the departures and arrivals hall at the airport itself. If you'd prefer to take the bus however, you can catch the 783 route from the city center, which takes about 45 minutes to reach the airport and costs approximately $2. Taxis are also available to provide a ride from anywhere within the city, with the cost dependent on your origin location. The smaller Aurel Vlaicu is serviced by bus routes 131, 335 and 783, as well as the city's taxis.

Breakfast Before Leaving

A quick breakfast can be had at the Henri Coanda International Airport, before heading off on one of the available flights from Bucharest, either at the Bell Vue or at the World News Café, both located in the airport's public area. If you have time to eat before reaching the airport, however, the Grand Café Galleron located just east of Piata Revolutiei offers an all-day breakfast service.

Cairo International Airport

Many people dream of taking a vacation to Cairo, and if you wait to look for flights to Cairo, you might find yourself overpaying for your flight. With Orbitz.com, you can book your domestic flight anytime you want without breaking your budget, since Orbitz offers deals and discounts that other sites can't offer. Located less than 10 miles from downtown, the Cairo International Airport handles most of the air traffic leaving from and arriving in the city.

Where to Go

After arriving in Cairo, you might feel a little confused about what to do next. The Cairo Transport Authority maintains a series of buses that stop at the airport, popular landmarks, and other areas in the city. Micro-buses and taxis are another option. Micro-buses are like small minivans that can hold several people. The small buses and taxis wait for travelers at the entrance to the terminal, providing inexpensive rides downtown.

Dust Storms and More

Dust storms are most common in the month of April and temperatures fluctuate depending on the season. If you visit in the summer, you should expect temperatures in the low 20s, with a high around 32 degrees Celsius. Winter temperatures can drop to single digits, with highs in the low teens.

Ancient Ruins on Display

Tourists flock to Cairo for the ancient ruins on display. Orbitz.com can give you access to a discount on some of these sites, such as Dahshur, Keops Pyramid, and Kefre. Even if you prefer indoor attractions, like the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, you can still find deals. After finding flights to Cairo, look for low prices on tickets to attractions you want to see on your trip.
