Reagan National DCA Airport Overview

Reagan National Airport DCA is the closer of the two Washington airports serving the U.S. capital City of Washington, D.C. (the other being Dulles IAD). DCA 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 the State of 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.
Reagan National Airport is reached directly via the Metrorail station adjacent to Terminal B/C.

Servicing an estimated 20 million passengers annually, Reagan National is the closest airport to the D.C. 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).

DCA now hasTSA Pre-Security check is available for select frequent flyers and for military active-duy service members (contact TSA 571-227-2829).  It is presently available at Terminal B, South checkpoint - for Delta Airlines. Eligible at present are also Trusted Travelers, Global Entry, SENTRI  & NEXUS members.

Ronald Reagan National Airport has one large passenger terminal - divided into A, B & C 'sub-terminals'.

Present and future Airport developments:   In June 2015, 'Air Alliance' was awarded a $75M conract for the long-term redevelopment program of Terminal B/C over the next few years. Aside from design improvements for better passenger service & efficiency, it will provide contact gate facilities, & secure connection between the concourses. A new concourse is to replace the 14 hardstands at airport's north side & relocate security checkpoints for seemless access to the gate areas without the need of re-screening .
