Terms of Use webpage


Hi! You’re probably here because we requested additional rights to share your photo across our channels. We love to see the travel journey through the eyes of our passengers at our airports (Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan National Airport) and what that experience looks like so other travelers know what to expect. Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure — we want to see how you are traveling safely!


We regularly reach out to customers to request additional rights to reuse our favorite images in our social, online advertising, website, and more. When necessary, we include your handle or byline.


Thank you for considering this request! It is entirely your choice whether to share or not, but we think people will love your photo. By responding to our request with the hashtag #ShareMyDCA or #ShareMyIAD, you are agreeing to the following:
