How about flying into Atlantic City Airport to visit the
Jersey Shore! Most of the visitors to the Jersey Shore just pack up the
car and go, but have you thought about flying into Atlantic City Airport
for a fast, easy trip? This airport is very convenient to the beaches
on the southern part of the Jersey Shore and, of course, to the casinos
and night life of Atlantic City. And with a little homework, you can find some real bargain flights, so you don't even have to hit the jackpot in Atlantic City to afford it.
Why should you consider the airport? It can be a real bargain, since smaller airports such as this one attract the regional airlines that keep their fares lower than the majors because their fees are lower than the big shots like Kennedy or Newark.
Spirit Airlines and Gold Transportation Services offer much lower flights to many parts of the country than you will find anywhere else.
Spirit Airlines is also famous for its $9 fare club, which actually does have fares for $9 from time to time. But even if you don't get to fly that cheaply, you can still get real bargains, although fares have been increasing steadily because of fuel costs.
The secret is to check the airline sites frequently, or subscribe to their email specials, and you will find cheap fares that will land you at the beach from Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, Dallas and many other cities in no time at all. Remember that you do have baggage charges now, so be sure to include them in your calculations when you are booking. Most of the really good fares go very quickly, and so it is important to book in advance, and make your decision fast.
Renting a car at Atlantic City airport is the easy option, but it can be expensive since airports charge steep fees to the car rental agencies for the privilege of being located at the airport. Here's a local's secret: You can save a lot of money if you can find satellite office of the rental company nearby. You can get a cab to the rental office for about $20, and the difference in car rental prices can easily be over $20 PER DAY! It definitely pays to do a little detective work to find out how the numbers add up.
Three airlines serve ACY, (Spirit, Air Canada, ChoiceAire) with direct air service to and from ten major cities. Since they are all hub airports, that means the connections are just about limitless
Despite the fact that Atlantic City Airport is small, convenient and easy to navigate around (if you've traveled through any of the major hub airports such as Chicago lately, you'll know what a nightmare it is just to find your way around the airport itself!), it is a full service airport with 2 restaurants, a bar, newsstands with coffee and snacks, a bank ATM and a gift shop.
Are you pining for the Jersey Shore? There is no reason to deprive
yourself of the sun, sea and sand just because you are in the Midwest or
the sizzling South. With a little advance planning, you can book a
cheap, quick flight and have your toes in the sand in no time!
