Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) in Arlington, Virginia, is the closest to the city centre Washington at four miles from the city centre. It serves Alaska, American, Continental, and many other carriers. Dulles International (IAD) is twenty-six miles away in Sterling, Virginia, and serves dozens of domestic and international carriers, including TACA, Lufthansa, and Virgin.

Ticket prices are often lower at BWI, although a ride into Washington with BWI Airport Taxi will cost $63.
Transportation from the Airport
All three of Washington D.C.'s airports handle heavy commercial traffic and millions of passengers every year.

The service also stops at DCA and doesn't require reservations. Renting your car through ebookers is easy at these airports, as all three are served by many rental companies, including Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Thrifty, and Hertz.
