Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport

Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport known as Reagan National Airport, or, more Washington National, Reagan Airport or National Airport, is an airport in Arlington, located adjacent to the border of Washington, D. C, it is the smaller of two commercial airports operated by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority that serve the National Capital Region around Washington, D. C.. The airport is just five miles from downtown Washington, D. C. and the border is visible from the airport, making it the nearest and most convenient commercial airport to the capital. The airport's original name was Washington National Airport. Congress adopted the present name to honor President Ronald Reagan in 1998. MWAA operates the airport with close oversight by the federal government due to its proximity to the national capital. Flights into and out of the airport are not allowed to exceed 1,250 statute miles in any direction nonstop, in an effort to send coast-to-coast and overseas traffic to the larger but more distant Washington Dulles International Airport, though there are 40 slot exemptions to this rule.

Planes are required to take unusually complicated paths to avoid restricted and prohibited airspace above sensitive landmarks, government buildings, military installations in and around Washington, D. C. and to comply with some of the tightest noise restrictions in the country. The small size of this airport imposes serious constraints on its capacity, but Reagan National serves 98 nonstop destinations. Reagan is a hub for American Airlines; the airport has United States immigration and customs facilities only for business jet traffic. The only scheduled international flights allowed to land at the airport are those from airports with U. S. Customs and Border Protection preclearance facilities, which encompasses flights from major airports in Canada and from some destinations in the Caribbean. Other international passenger flights to the Washington, D. C. area must use Washington Dulles International Airport or Baltimore–Washington International Airport. There are five scheduled international routes, which are to cities in Canada, the Bahamas, Bermuda.

The airport served 23.5 million passengers in 2018. In 2019, DCA served 23,945,527 passengers, an increase of 1.8% over 2018, a new passenger record for the airport. The first airport in the Washington area with a major terminal was Arlington's Hoover Field, which opened its doors in 1926. Located near the present site of the Pentagon, the facility's single runway was crossed by a street; the following year Washington Airport, another operated field, began service next door. In 1930 the Depression led the two terminals to merge to form Washington-Hoover Airport. Bordered on the east by U. S. Route 1, with its accompanying high-tension electrical wires, obstructed by a high smokestack on one approach and a dump nearby, the field was inadequate. Although the need for a better airport was acknowledged in 37 studies conducted between 1926 and 1938, there was a statutory prohibition against federal development of airports; when Congress lifted the prohibition in 1938, President Franklin D. Roosevelt made a recess appropriation of $15 million to build National Airport by reallocating funds from other purposes.

Construction of Washington National Airport began in 1940–41 by a company led by John McShain. Congress challenged the legality of FDR's recess appropriation, but construction of the new airport continued; the airport is southwest of Washington, D. C; the western part of the airport was once within a large Virginia plantation, a remnant of, now inside a historic site located near the airport's Metro-rail station. The eastern part of the airport was constructed in the District of Columbia on and near mudflats that were within the tidal Potomac River near Gravelly Point, about 4 statute miles from the United States Capitol, using landfill dredged from the Potomac River; the airport opened June 16, 1941, just before US entry into World War II. The public was entertained by displays of wartime equipment including a captured Japanese Zero war prize flown in with U. S. Navy colors. In 1945 Congress passed a law that established the airport was within Virginia but under the jurisdiction of the federal government.

On July 1 of that year, the airport's weather station became the official point for D. C. weather observations and records by the National Weather Service, located in Washington, D. C; the April 1957 Official Airline Guide shows 316 weekday departures: 95 Eastern, 77 American, 61 Capital, 23 National, 17 TWA, 10 United, 10 Delta, 6 Allegheny, 6 Braniff, 5 Piedmont, 3 Northeast and 3 Northwest. Jet flights began in April 1966. By 1974, the airport's key carriers were Eastern and Allegheny; the grooving of runway 18–36 to improve traction when wet, in March 1967, was a first for a civil airport in the United States. Service to the airport's Metro station began in 1977; the Washington National Airport Terminal and South Hangar Line were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. The runway layout has changed little since the 1956 closure of a fourth runway, on an East-West axis; the construction of a North Terminal supplemented the original terminal building in 1958 and continued construction con
