Private Jet Flights to JYO: Leesburg Executive Airport - Leesburg, VA
Leesburg Executive Airport Overview
Many commercial aircraft fly into DC through Washington Dulles International. But the congestion at the main airport can be a hassle, and there are times when it may be better and more cost efficient to book a private jet to Washington DC that lands in the reliever airport, Leesburg Executive Airport, located a bit more west than Dulles International but with far less traffic.
Leesburg Executive Airport, or JYO, offers support for business jet travelers with a long runway that can safely land planes of most sizes. The airport itself is owned and operated by the city of Leesburg, although private charters to JYO will likely run through Project Aviation, the on-site FBO.
Nearby Amenities to Leesburg Executive Airport
JYO is almost exclusively used by private travelers looking to avoid the crowds over at IAD, and those that plan to travel into Washington DC for a professional or personal stay. But it should be noted that there are activities around Leesburg for those that may not yet be ready to travel to the city. For example:
- Morven Park
- The Marshall House
- Stone Tower Winery
- Rust Nature Sanctuary
- Casanel Vineyards and Winery
There are also three well ranked golf courses, including River Creek Club, and plenty of dining options to choose from should you need to get a bite to eat.
Travel to Washington DC
Of course, because most private jets to JYO are for those planning to head into the city, it should be noted that while the drive from Leesburg Executive Airport can be on the long side (about 45 minutes with minimal traffic), the routes themselves are fairly straight forward. You can take the 267, which is a tad curvy but brings you right into DC, or you can opt for the 7, which is a bit longer a drive but almost a straight line from downtown Leesburg.
