Washington Dulles International Airport
United States Capital area visitors and residents looking for air travel service are fortunate to have a choice of two airports near the city of Washington D.C.: Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
Washington Dulles International Airport was dedicated by former United States President John F. Kennedy in 1962, as Washington Dulles International Airport. The airport encompasses nearly 11,000 acres of land, twenty-six miles west of the nation's capital in Dulles. The first commercial flight with Eastern Air Lines, landed at the airport in 1962.
In 1983, the airport was host to the Space Shuttle Enterprise aboard a modified Boeing 747, after its tour in Europe and before returning to Edwards Air Force Base. In 2003, the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center museum branch of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum opened at Dulles.
It houses the Space Shuttle Enterprise, the Enola Gay B-29, the Air France Concorde and many additional aviation artifacts. Numerous domestic and international commercial flights are available from several major commercial airlines at the airport.
