Washington DC-Major Airports

district of columbia area airport information

Washington DC is served by three major airports , two on the outskirts and one right in the city center. Dulles International Airport , 26 miles west in northern Virginia, and Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI), halfway between DC and Baltimore, get the majority of the international traffic. Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and its major state-of-the-art terminal, along the Potomac River just west of the Mall, is mostly used by domestic flights. Taking a taxi downtown from BWI or Dulles costs around $50, but express buses run from both airports to a downtown terminal at 1517 K St NW, just three blocks north of the White House. Washington Flyer Express (tel 1-800/927-4359) serves Dulles (every 30min; 40min journey; $16 one-way, $26 round-trip) and the SuperShuttle (tel 1-800/BLUE-VAN) runs from BWI (every 30min; 1hr journey; $30 one-way). From Dulles, the cheapest method, though more time-consuming, is to take the Washington Flyer Express as far as West Falls Church Metro station ($8) and the Metro subway system from there. A SuperShuttle runs from National (every 30-60min; $13 one-way), though this airport is on the Metro system, just a short ride from downtown. Taxis downtown from National cost around $15.
