With the holiday season in full swing, special performances and activities at Reagan National and Dulles International airports are prepared to get travelers in a festive mood. Performances by local schools and professional ensembles will fill the terminals with sweet tunes. Santa and other holiday-themed entertainers will stroll the halls. Photo booths will capture the moment for young and old alike. And passengers working on their shopping lists can claim a free gift with $100 minimum same-day purchases at airport stores and restaurants.

“The holidays are a time to celebrate,” said Jerome L. Davis, chief revenue officer of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. “Just a few weeks ago, we pledged to provide our passengers with an enjoyable travel experience – and we will help them celebrate with an increased slate of entertainment and specials they can all enjoy as they journey through Reagan National and Dulles International, ‘the Nation’s Airports.’”
