Answer this1 AnswerWhen you say open ended, I am assuming you are meaning one way. All you have to do is you can actually go to away.com and look at their flight options. But all you need to do is check the one way option instead of roundtrip on whichever website you decided to use.

You basically have two options: an airport bus, which will save you some money but add time; or taxi, which is quicker but a little more expensive (an Away.com staffer cautions that you should "never accept a fixed-price taxi ride to his destination and always rely on the meter").
