 About Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport:

Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) is located in Arlington, VA just across the Potomac River from the Nation’s Capital. Built in 1941, the airport’s original Terminal, now called Terminal A, is on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1987, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority was formed to operate Washington National and Dulles International Airports which were built and owned by the federal government. In 1997, Terminal B/C, designed by Cesar Pelli, was opened with a new roadway and parking garages. The airport features an unequaled view of Washington D.C. and key monuments and quality shopping and dining establishments located before and after security. Reagan National is directly linked to the region’s Metrorail system which is adjacent to Terminal B/C.
