Almost 2.5 million passengers traveled through Dulles in the month of July alone.

Almost two and a half million passengers traveled through Dulles in July, the most in any single month since 2005.
Lynn Hampton, head of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, says almost all of that growth has come from international travel.
"Our international flights have been increasing over time," says Hampton. "Our domestic has been very flat."
Kafiall Boletca is manning the South African airways ticket counter here at Dulles.
"All international flights are full, some airlines like AirFrance and Luftansa, they have two flights in a day in this busy season," says Boletca.
July was also a big month for cargo passing through Dulles. It increased by almost 18 percent over the same time last year.
