Requesting a Permit to Demonstrate on Airport Property

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority’s top priority is the safety and security of all people on airport property. To ensure no disruptions to airport operations and to accommodate public gatherings on airport property, the Airports Authority has a series of policies regarding public demonstrations and similar gatherings. These policies identify specific locations for press conferences, picketing and assembly and outline permit requirements.

We ask all organizations wishing to assemble on airport property to contact Airport Operations for details on regulations, safety procedures and specific available airport locations. The contact numbers are (703) 417-8050 for Reagan National and (703) 572-2730 for Dulles International. 

The Airports Authority wants to work with organizations to ensure events take place in appropriate areas and are properly managed to assure the safety and security of everyone involved while maintaining safe and efficient airport operations.
