Airports to Train Stations: Europe

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

European Airports to train stations:

Here, from Eurail.com , is an overview of frequently used airport to train station connections.     Unlike much of the USA where Airports generally assume you’ll have a car or take a taxi, in Europe there is a robust system of train / airport connections where trains, subways and other mass transportation are linked directly into airports.    Often you can take a train right from the airport to the city.

Note that often (but not always) the connection is free for Eurail Passholders, exceptions are noted with asterisk  *.      This chart is current as of April 2010, for the latest visit the Eurail website:

Monday, April 26th, 2010

Dulles International Airport Airport Code: IAD serves the greater Washington D.C.

Dulles Parking

Washington D.C. is the capitol of the United States and home to some of America’s finest architecture, history, and museums.  In Washington D.C. you’ll find the attractions listed below all near the National Mall area.   Note that the National Mall area is HUGE and you can spend several days exploring this and surrounding attractions like the WWII Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Smithsonian Institution (allow at least a day and hopefully more to roam this museum – one of the world’s finest).

Bring comfortable shoes and try to use the submay or busses when possible.  Parking is sometimes hard to find around the major attractions, especially in summer.

Washington D.C. Attractions include:

The Washington Monument

Lincoln Memorial

Jefferson Memorial

WW II Memorial (near the center of the National Mall)

Vietnam Memorial (near the Lincoln Memorial)

National Mall

Smithsonian Museum

Holocaust Museum

US Treasury Museum.

Volcanic Ash Updates from CNN

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

CNN and BBC have excellent coverage of the European ash cloud that has disrupted travel extensively around the world and especially in Europe where flights are only expected to fully resume later this week, and only if there are no additional problems from this remarkable airplane and airport story.

Iceland Volcano Delays Thousands of Flights

Friday, April 16th, 2010

Volcanic ash, which represents a potential severe danger to aircraft engines, continues to pour from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano.     Under some circumstances the ash can damage jet engines and they will stop completely,  creating the potential for catastrophic failures and accidents.    For this reason many flights throughout Europe were cancelled yesterday and schedules remain in flux today.      Flights around the world are affected by the snarled airline traffic in Eurupe.

As CNN Reports it remains unclear when the travel hazard will diminish enough for normal flight schedules to resume.

Bengaluru International Airport

Bengaluru International Airport

Note that the old Bangalore Airport is no longer a big commercial center (I think it’s for military now) and Bengaluru Airport serves the Bangalore region.   Unfortunately  Bengaluru is about 19 miles from the city of Bangalore so you’ll need to find transportation back and forth and allow sometimes considerable extra time to make sure you make your flight.

Bengaluru International Airport (Kannada: ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ಅಂತಾರಾಷ್ಟ್ರೀಯ ವಿಮಾನ ನಿಲ್ದಾಣ) (IATA: BLRICAO: VOBL) is an international airport serving the city of Bangalore (Bengaluru), Karnataka, India. The airport is located 4 km (2.5 mi) south of Devanahalli and is 40 km (25 mi) from the central business district of Bengaluru (30 km (19 mi) from the Bangalore City Railway Station[1]) and covers 4,000 acres (1,600 ha).[3] It replaced the old HAL Bangalore International Airport. Construction of the airport began in July 2005, after a decade long postponement. It was expected to be inaugurated on 30 March 2008 but due to delays in air traffic control (ATC) services, it started its operations on the night of 23 May 2008, just before midnight. The airport is the 3rd busiest in India in terms of passenger traffic handling about 9.3 million passengers during 2008-09[4]and in air traffic movements (ATM) with about 300-310 movements per day in the year of 2009 after Delhi and Mumbai airports respectively.

Airport Wayfinder has a really neat 3D Tour tool for four airports – I’m not clear if they’ll develop this technology for all the airports though it appears it may be designed to mesh with  planned or existing  touchscreen systems in the airports.

FAA Flight Delay Map

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

The FAA Website provides a nice quick map check of general flight delays around the USA.   The FAA USA flight delay  map is here. For detailed information it is generally best to consult your airline rather than this map or even Airport information which seems to sometimes lag the Airline website reports by many minutes or even hours.     Also, this map is only about general delays that affect the airports – there will also be specific airline/flight related delays that do not show up here.

Contacting your airline for delay information is especially important if you are travelling on international flights to or from the USA when the delays can be longer and of more  inconvenience to you.

Airline Phone Numbers and Airline Websites

A neat trick to find quick flight information is to use Google’s search box shortcut.       Typing in  Airline NameFlight Number  at Google will give you  flight schedule / arrival / delay information.

For an example click here:    United Airline 22

You can even abbreviate the airline to it’s two letter code as in    “UA 22”    for United Airlines flight 22.

Airport Codes for US Airports, Canadian Airports, and International Airports

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

The rumors are true – The QuickAid.com Airport Directory has added a very robust list of Airport Codes from around the world divided into Airports from the USA, Canada, and International Aiports.    Click below or in the page menu above for the lists of codes or for Airline Phone Numbers and Websites.

Airline Phone Numbers and Airline Websites

If you are shopping for flight travel bargains consider starting your search with the big “consolidator” websites Kayak.com and  Orbitz.com  (Kayak often lists Orbitz flights so I usually just use Kayak).       Try to use the “matrix” or “flexible dates” features to expand your search to 3 days before and after your preferred departures.   Small adjustments in times and dates often yield large savings.

This search will give you a good starting price to try to beat with other sites, which should include Expedia, Travelocity, and the actual airline websites from the best deals you’ve found so far (though going to Airline sites is often redundant as they generally have the same info that is fed into Kayak.

A problem with Kayak is that it does not have all the airlines so if – for example – you are in a market served by Allegiant you may find much better deals than will be listed in any consolidator.      Allegiant only travels to a few big locations from dozens of small rural markets, but if you are lucky enough to live in those markets and are travelling to Las Vegas, Mesa AZ, or Los Angeles California you’ll be rewarded with massive savings on the order of 1/2 to 1/3 the  normal flight costs.

For International Travel budget conscious flyers will want to work even harder, looking for flights that may not be on a daily schedule and therefore may not appear in all your searches.   Also, word of mouth is often a great way to find out some good starting points for international flights.     You may even find that a good travel agent can get better deals than you can find online since they will have the experience and knowledge that will allow them to find “hidden gems” or good promotional deals you may not become aware of.

So, as with any endeavor try to stay patient, do a few hours of searching and talking, and save yourself a bundle on flights.    Keep in mind that spending a few hours to save a few hundred dollars represents a substantial return on your time investment and puts you in better shape for your future travel needs.


US Passport Rules

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

The US Government Passport rules have become much more restrictive over the last few years, so if you have not travelled recently be sure your documents are in order.

Generally American citizens  now need a passport or special travel document for travel from the USA to Mexico and Canada.

Here is the website with official information:  travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html

From US Government:

The U.S. Electronic Passport

The U.S. Electronic Passport (e-passport) is the same as a regular passport with the addition of a small contactless integrated circuit(computer chip) embedded in the back cover. The chip securely stores the same data visually displayed on the photo page of the passport, and additionally includes a digital photograph. The inclusion of the digital photograph enables biometric comparison, through the use of facial recognition technology, at international borders. The U.S. e-passport also has a new look, incorporating additional anti-fraud and security features.

Since August 2007, the U.S. has been issuing only e-passports.    However passports without chips will still be valid for the full extent of their validity period.
