    Although Washington Dulles International Airport has much expanded compared to its initial state, it still consists of only one terminal building with two concourses and 139 gates. The main terminal is a work of famous architect Eero Saarinen and represents one of the city’s landmarks. Passengers are offered Mobile Lounges and Plane Mates to board the plane. There are altogether four runways at the airport grounds.

    Airport Facilities

    Washington Dulles serves a large number of passengers and can get quite crowded at times. All parts are well connected with walkways and shuttle buses. If you are travelling at night, you should pay a visit to Concourse D where there are shops open 24/7. Concourse B is considered the most appealing area at the airport which offers excellent shopping and dining options. Travellers can take advantage of free WiFi throughout the whole airport. To relax, you could spend some time at one of the airport lounges.

    How to get to and from Washington DC Airport

    Drive your rent a car from Washington DC Airport to the city in around 40 minutes. From Aviation D be sure to get on the VA-267 E road in Hunter Mill. Follow the road VA-267 E and I-66 E to E St Expy in Washington DC. Take the exit toward E St from I-66 E and continue on E St. Expy to the city. In normal traffic circumstances, the drive should not take longer than 40 minutes. When returning your car hire, please count on unpredictable road conditions and leave yourself plenty of time for returning the vehicle to the rental company. The roads are well-signposted; just follow the signs to the airport.

    Parking Tips

    There are plenty of parking options at Washington Dulles Airport ranging from short-term to long-term ones. The rates also vary and you can choose to pay per hour or day. Reservations are not required. When it comes to Washington DC, we recommend using parking garages and public car parks as parking on-street and in the city centre can get scarce and quite expensive. Sometimes it is best to leave the vehicle at the hotel and take the underground if you are planning on visiting the main tourist attractions.
