Flights from Ohio to Aruba

My husband and I are planning a special trip to Aruba in June 07 for our 50th birthdays and our 20 yr. anniversary. Everyone says Aruba is wonderful but I'm just starting to look for airfare and the flights I'm seeing are all 11-12 hrs. long. Does anyone know of shorter flights or is that my only choice.

Also, would like to hear recommendations for hotels or resorts. Thanks.

I don't know where in Ohio you are from, but you will probably have to fly to Boston, NY, Philadelphia, Atlanta or Miami and then direct to Aruba. As an example, NY to Aruba is about four hours and tack on what it would take from your home to one of these gateways. It should not be more than a total of seven or eight hours tops.

Not sure what flights you have out of Ohio, but from Minneapolis we connect through Chicago (United), Charlotte (USAir), or Atlanta (Delta) and our flight is about 7-8 hours total.

If you are in Cleveland check out the flights out from PIT. I am planning my honeymoon around the same time and the flight time is 6-7 hours. Just a thought. Good luck!

We are flying out of Omaha direct to Atlanta on Delta which is a 3 hour flight with the time change and from Atlanta, it's only 4 hours to Aruba. The only thing that we're worried about is that we only have 45 min in Atlanta to change planes and Atlanta is a BIG airport. When we went in 2002, our luggage didn't make it with us so this year (2 weeks from Sat. yeah...) we are putting as much as possible in our carry on...

Also an option from Ohio would be Washington DC (Dulles) to connect to United's daily nonstop.

We flew from Akron-Canton to Charlotte (approx 1 hr.), then to Aruba (another 4 or 4 1/2 hrs.). Technically that took about 8-9 hrs. if you include the lay over in Charlotte. While switching planes can sometimes be a hassle, it does help break up the trip!

I understand your concern (we were married in Hawaii and, although VERY worth it, the 14+ hr flight was Brutal!).

Sometimes you're able to get a more direct flight by paying a little more. Expedia.com will let you search by 'price' or 'duration,' which shows the shortest flights first. Click on that choice just above where the flight choices are listed.

A side note: we just returned from our first Aruba trip at the beginning of the month and it IS all they say... hope you can find a flight that suits you!! It would be a fabulous place for a b-day/anniv. combo celebration!
