Local Airports

There are three major airports in the Washington, DC region: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (airport code: DCA), Washington Dulles International Airport (airport code: IAD) and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (airport code: BWI). DCA has direct access to a metro line.

We recommend making air ticket reservations as early as possible as summer prices rise fast.
