Melbourne to Cork Flights
Melbourne International Airport
As reluctant as you may be to leave the warm subtropical client of sunny Melbourne, flights from this area depart from Tullamarine Airport, better known as Melbourne International Airport. In this busy airport that carries nearly thirty international lines, including as British Airways, Air France, Delta, Air Canada, and American Airlines, you’re sure to find great rates and deals through ebookers. Melbourne Airport is located approximately fourteen miles from the city proper, so set aside at least thirty minutes to be sure you’ll make your flight on time.
Airport Parking in Melbourne
Pickup and drop-off are simple at Melbourne Airport, which offers a free twenty-four hour courtesy bus for all passengers and services every terminal. Enjoy economy rates in the long-term parking lot, which costs only $11 a day for a one-week stay and $9 a day for a two-week stay. For a slightly higher rate, you can use the multi-level covered long-term lot, which charges approximately $20 a day for a one-week stay. However, for the summer season and weekends, the airport frequently offers heavily discounted rates for the multi-level lot using vouchers you can obtain from the airport website. If reserving flights through ebookers has made you accustomed to convenience, consider using the Express Car Park, literally located directly in front of the T3 and T4 terminals. This option uses automated payment machines set up in the parking lot and costs $56 for one day.
Ground Transportation in Melbourne
An affordable option for reaching the airport from downtown is the SkyBus, which runs every ten minutes, costs $17 for a one-way trip, and offers limited onboard storage for your luggage. Several other local buses leave from different sections of Melbourne, but rates are typically double the cost of the SkyBus. If you’re traveling with a heavy luggage load, expect to pay at least $60 for a taxi fare from central Melbourne.
