Cheap Flights from Washington to Europe
When taking an international flight from the Washington D.C. area, you will most likely be departing from the Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) although the Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) also serves a few international destinations.
Some flights connecting in Washington D.C. may fly into Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA), but due to the fact that DCA does not have the capacity to serve a high number of passengers, the departure from or for their international destination will most likely be from IAD. In situations such as this, it is the passenger's responsibility to get from one airport to the other.
