IATA: IAD, ICAO: KIAD.

Dulles International Airport (the word “Washington” was later added) opened in Virginia in 1962 on 10,000 acres of land 27 miles west of downtown Washington, D.C.

Most of the airport is situated in Dulles in Loudoun County but a small portion is located in Chantilly in Fairfax County.

It was named after John Foster Dulles, Secretary of State from 1953 to 1959 under President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

There are some 140 gates in a main terminal and two midfield terminal buildings for commercial flights.

There are also two private fixed base operator terminals that serve private jets.

Why hire a private jet to IAD?

There are two private terminals at Washington Dulles International that are served by two FBOs, Jet Aviation and Signature Flight Support.

Both terminals have flight planning rooms and executive conference rooms.

FBOs Jet Aviation

Jet Aviation, which operates out of a recently renovated 84,000 square foot terminal northwest of the main terminal, has six hangars and 10 acres of ramp space. Jet Aviation is a recent addition to Washington Dulles, acquiring the Ross Aviation FBO in 2017.

Customs and immigration clearance are available in its remodeled terminal, which has a VIP lounge and on-site car rental.

Jet Aviation, which operates worldwide, has nine locations in the United States.

FBO Signature Flight Support

Signature Flight Support, called Signature IAD at Dulles, operates out of a 67,000 square foot terminal on the east side of the airport, near the Dulles Jet Center.

Signature gets interesting online raves from its customers. One passenger, who had been expecting to find her car dreadfully covered in snow upon her middle-of-the-night return to Dulles, found instead her car – and every car in the parking lot – cleared of snow, thanks to a Signature employee.

Another customer raves about a chocolate-chip-cookie-carrying valet greeting him curbside and leading him to his limousine in which the seat-warmers had been turned on and made for a cozy arrival.

By the way, flights between Washington Dulles and Teterboro in Bergen County, N.J., are the second most traveled by private jets. The only busiest short route that carries passengers on private jets is the one between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Dulles Jet Center

Dulles Jet Center, located just north of the Signature Terminal, is a secure place to park your private jet.

With its 300,000 square feet of ramp parking, private jets can be parked without crowding.

The four hangars at the Dulles Jet Center have amenities that include:

  • 160,000 square feet of rental space
  • Fast tilt-up state-of-the-art hangar doors
  • 24-hour camera surveillance system and security program
  • Tugs for efficient and safe towing of aircraft
  • Canopied entrance to provide weather protection

Why is Dulles so far from D.C.?

Dulles International Airport - Aerial View

After World War II, when it was determined that a second airport was needed to serve the Washington, D.C., area, Congress passed the Washington Airport Act of 1950 to provide for one.

Until then, Washington National Airport (now Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport), which opened in 1941, was the sole airport in the District of Columbia.

In 1958, President Dwight Eisenhower chose the site on which Washington Dulles now sits. (The original parcel was 10,000 square feet. In 1999, an additional 1,000 acres were acquired. In 2005, an additional 830 acres were acquired.)

The immense size of the parcel of land – 18 square miles – allows a huge airport to be built buffered from neighbors. Right now, only about half of it is being used for aircraft operation.

It was the first airport in the country to be designed specifically for commercial jets.

There are five concourses at Washington Dulles and four runways, three of which opened when the airport did in 1962, the fourth added in 2008. A planned fifth runway has not yet been scheduled for construction.

Is there a train into Washington, D.C.?

Most people who charter a private jet into Washington Dulles have transportation from the airport lined up. However, some would take the Metro rail line into the city if it extended out that far.

The good news is that it will be extended that far. The bad news is not until 2020.

Seems the area President Eisenhower chose 60 years ago isn’t as remote as it used to be and residents there fought the extension of the Metro line for years. It’s not that they didn’t want it, they just didn’t want it in their backyard.

Called the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project, the 23-mile extension of the existing railway system was to be built in two phases. The first phase, connecting East Falls Church and Tysons Corner, opened in 2014.

The second phase, which began in 2014, will run from Reston to Washington Dulles International Airport.

When it is done, it will be called the Silver Line.

Washington, D.C., events

Some people come to Washington, D.C., just to see the sites and museums around the nation’s capital. Others hire private jets to Washington Dulles International Airport for specific events, such as:

  • The Citi Open, which is held at the Rock Creek Park Tennis Center, is one of only 13 prestigious ATP World Tour 500 tournaments. The ATP is the governing body of the worldwide men’s professional tennis circuits. It has been held annually – usually in August – since it began as the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in 1969. American Andre Agassi, with five wins, holds the record for most titles in the U.S. capital. The tournament, which draws more than 70,000 fans every year, has been part of some of the most innovative changes in tennis, including blue courts, instant replay/video boards in the stadium and the US Open Series.
  • CRM Evolution, held every year in April, is put on by CRM Magazine/destinationCRM.com and co-located with three other conferences. This is the place for executives who are driving their company’s customer relationship management (CRM). According to the conference is meant to help organizations master all communication channels – social, mobile, phone, Web, email – to serve their customers. They must also be able to chart the analytics from each channel to see. Dozens of experts take part in the conference.

You can also charter a private jet into IAD to get to Northern Virginia’s Technology Corridor, which Atlantic Magazine has dubbed “Silicon Valley of the East.”

Its proximity to Washington, D.C., makes it the perfect spot for governmental-related defense, internet, tech and telecom companies. Eight Fortune 500 companies have headquarters in Fairfax County, in which a portion of Washington Dulles is located.
