Flying from Houston to Detroit

With its rich industrial past and revitalized downtown area, Detroit is a fascinating place to visit. Whether you’re looking for a quick break from the heat in Houston or traveling for business, Orbitz.com can help you find the flights from Houston to Detroit that fit your time constraints and budget.

Flying out of Houston

The Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport is the major airport in the Houston area. It sits about twenty miles north of downtown, so the drive can take up to an hour during rush hour. The most economical parking lot at the airport is the Ecopark lot, which offers shuttles to the terminal. Other transportation options include taxis, the shared Super Shuttle, and the Houston METRO bus.

Highlights of Detroit

The Detroit Metro Airport serves the city and many of the other cities in the southern part of Michigan. The airport is located about twenty miles out of the city, and the most convenient way to get around the area is by car. If you’re traveling around the holidays, be sure to reserve a rental car before your trip. Taxis are available at the airport, and you can expect to pay at least $50 to get into the city. When you’ve settled in, head out to explore the downtown area, which defies all of its stereotypes. Enjoy lunch and shopping on the busy Riverwalk, catch a Redwings game at the Joe Louis Arena, or take a bike tour with Detroit Synergy. You’ll be likely to spend time outdoors during your visit, so prepare for the extreme temperatures the city experiences from season to season. In the winter, get ready for days that average 20°F and frequently drop below 0°F. Summers days average 80°F, but the frequent humid spells make it feel hotter.
