Washington Reagan National (DCA) Airport
Washington Reagan National DCA Airport Overview
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport DCA is the closer of the two Washington (District of Columbus) Airports (the other being Dulles IAD, which is actually in Virginia). It offers a great view of the Nation's Capital, and quality shopping & dining in both pre- and post-security areas.
DCA Airport is located in Arlington - across the Potomac River dividing Washington D.C. and Virginia - and only three miles south of the central business district of the Nation's capital, Washington, D.C. It is situated on GW Memorial Parkway and is connected to US Rt 1 (Jefferson Davis Hwy) by airport viaduct (State 233); Interstate Hwy 395 is just north of DCA Airport and accessible by GW Parkway and Route 1.
You can also reach Reagan National directly by rail, as the Metrorail system's access is adjacent to Terminal B/C.
Servicing an estimated 20 million annual passengers, Reagan Washington National is the closest airport to the Capital; however, with only mid-size runways, it primarily serves as a short-haul airport, with airline service being restricted to a 1,250 mile perimeter, with some exceptions.
