Charter FAQ

What is the most convenient airport to use in Washington DC?

While Ronald Reagan Airport in downtown DC is the closest airport in the area it is not always the easiest to use. Not only do you need a permit to land at Reagan there can also be long delays due to all of the government officials flying in and out. We recommend using Dulles or Baltimore (BWI) depending on your final destination in Washington DC.

What is the appropriate aircraft to use to fly from Miami to Washington DC?

With the flight from Miami to Washington DC being about 2 hours there are quite a few aircraft that would work for this trip. The main factor in determining the best aircraft for this particular flight would be the size of the group you are travelling with. If you have under 8 passengers a Light Jet would be perfect for this flight.

What are the busiest times to fly in and out of Washington DC?

A large portion of the travel into and out of Washington DC revolves around the government and their meeting schedule. Reagan, Dulles and Baltimore (BWI) experience the heaviest air traffic during the morning and evening rush hour periods.
