Discover Washington Dulles international airport departures

Washington Dulles International Airport is located west of the city of Washington D.C. in the state of Virginia. Alongside Ronald Reagan and Baltimore, it is one of three airports serving the region. It is primarily a major gateway for international flights and a hub to other airports in the US. It is located west of the city and is easily accessible via several access roads by taxi, car, or public transport. The airline United Airlines has a base at Washington Dulles airport and therefore carries out most departures. This is even more than 70 percent of all flights. There is 1 terminal building that is connected to Concourse A and B. There is also a second part (C and D) to carry out all Dulles departures. This is all done via the 4 runways to carry 22-26 million passengers per year.

Busiest flights

Most flight routes are to other airports that are also on the east coast of the US. Many go to major cities but also smaller airports are accessible such as Jacksonville, Tampa, Southwest Florida, Grand Rapids, and Akron Canton.


There are however so many more possibilities in the Caribbean, Europe, and  Latin America as well.


Washington had opened an airport in 1941 called the Ronald Reagan National Airport. Due to the large increasing demand, there need to come more capacity. A site was selected in 1958 west of the city of 10,000 acres. The Ammann and Whitney organization was commissioned to make the terminal building. The opening was 4 years later which then had 2 floors. It was made with the ability to easily extend the building. Three runways were built with lengths of 6,700, 10,000, and 11,500 feet. All have the standard instrument landing system. The airport then had a capacity for 6 million passengers per year. It was one of the most modern airports in the world. There was an increasing demand for fires, which meant that additional buildings had to be built.

Fifteen years after the opening, the first expansion has been completed with a larger parking area for the aircraft. A few years later, after Concourses A and B, Buildings C and D were added. There were also several cargo buildings, more car parking and a hotel in the 1980’s. After that, the airport bought more land for future use. At the end of the 1990’s, the 20 million passengers per year were reached. Since then, the airport has slowly grown with parking garage 1 and 2, new traffic control tower, Aerotrain system, and an international building was completed.
