Washington DC Airports

Updated February 2003
There are three Washington area airports, National, Dulles, and BWI.

National Airport is in DC (actually in Virginia, nominally in DC), Dulles is in Virginia, and BWI (Baltimore Washington International) is in Maryland (closer to Baltimore than to DC).

National is the most convenient if your destination is DC and if you're coming from within the US (it's not an International Airport). Since its renovation in 1997 it's a delightful, friendly airport. We're right proud of it!
