The first step to take when arriving in a new destination (besides going through passport control, only necessary in international destinations) is figuring out how to get from the airport to your accommodation. City buses, trains and taxis are the traditional go-to transit options, but some locations have transportation specifically dedicated to carting residents and visitors to and from the airport.
Dublin is one such city with Airlink buses that cover the route from the airport to the center of town without stopping every few minutes. The green Airlink Express bus has two appropriately named routes: the 747 and the 757.
The 747 bus route connects Dublin Airport with Heuston Rail Station with stops at the Convention Centre Dublin, O’Connell Street, Trinity College, Temple Bar and High Street, among others. Airlink 757 departs from the airport and includes the stops mentioned above, plus Pearse Rail Station, Merrion Square, St. Stephen’s Green, Leeson Street and more.
A one-way adult ticket costs €7 (approximately $8.25) while a return/round-trip ticket costs €12 ($14). Airlink also sells a combination pass that includes a 48-hour city tour card for €23 ($27) with a one-way ticket and €27 ($32) with a return ticket.
Beyond being a major hub in the global transportation network, Hartsfield-Jackson is also proud to be a major hub for exciting, high-quality retail options through our award-winning concessions program, ATL Skypointe.
As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
