Direct service to Orlando, Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Tampa begins in August. Then in September you can fly direct to Las Vegas, Cincinnati, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Memphis, Fort Myers, St. Louis and Jacksonville.

Dulles has seen its number of domestic flights dropping. The number of domestic passengers traveling through the airport fell six percent over 12 months ending in January.

Frontier is a discount airline that also operates out of Reagan National and BWI.
