Plan Your Melbourne Holiday

There is certainly plenty to see and do when you travel to Melbourne, as well as the chance to sit back and relax. Just outside the city is the Phillip Island Penguin Parade, an afternoon attraction where you can see penguins walk down to the beach and even walk amongst them. Nature is never far away in this green city.

Melbourne’s summer runs from December to February, when temperatures rise and the city is warm. Melbourne can also be enjoyed in the spring and autumn, as leaves on the park trees change colour beautifully. Reserve your tickets to Melbourne with the weather in mind, as swimming in the sea is best in the summer. Finding cheap hotels in Melbourne will not be a problem, due to the many types of accommodation on offer in the city and suburbs. Flight deals to Melbourne are available throughout the year, so be sure to check our Deals section before confirming your holiday.

Major Airports in Washington D.C.

Local and International flights into Washington D.C. are primarily serviced by three major airports in the district. The closest and most convenient of these is Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), which is located a mere 4.8 km from city centre. The airport opened in 1941 and was a replacement for Hoover Field, an airport so small that its runways crossed city streets, and had to be manned by guards to halt automobile traffic during plane landing and take-off.

Airport Transportation in Washington D.C.

The most convenient ground transport option is the train to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, provided by the Washington Metro Yellow and Blue lines. A bus to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is available when the train is not running. If you need greater timing flexibility, you can also hail a taxi to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, though at a greater cost than the other available alternatives.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Washington to Melbourne on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
