Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) is in the minority of U.S. airports that have not seen any growth in passenger numbers over recent years.

DCA is known as the short-haul airport of Washington, D.C. due to its 1,250-mile perimeter for destinations. Only flights to domestic destinations and a select few airports in Canada are served from DCA, so the airport does not have any customs or immigration facilities.

DCA Airport Terminal

DCA is laid out in the shape of a J, consisting of 2 terminals and 5 concourses.

At the bottom curve of the J are gates A1 to A9, with a semi-circle-shaped terminal building and 1 concourse.

Gates B10 to E59 are situated up the long side of the J, with the 4 concourses evenly distributed along the full length (inside the secure area). Both terminals are served by public access roads for curbside pick-up and drop-off and have parking garages situated outside.

Terminal 1 (formerly Terminal A)

Gates A1 to A9 are in the smaller of the 2 concourse sections with flights operated by Air Canada, Frontier, and Southwest Airlines. The terminal consists of 1 level, and the far end of the curve is where the ticketing desks and baggage areas are situated. Following the curve around, passengers will find a USO Lounge, a conference center, and access to the underground walkway to the parking lot.

The concourse is only accessible for passengers as there is a security checkpoint at the entrance. There are 9 gates numbered A1 to A9 located in the rotunda and a small selection of shops and restaurants just after security.

Hot Tip:

Terminal 2 (Formerly Terminal B/C)

National Hall is split over 3 levels — level 1 is baggage claim and has access to some ground transportation services outside, level 2 is the departures level where you access security and walk onto the individual concourses, and level 3 is ticketing.

A large parking garage is outside of the terminal with access via a pedestrian bridge on level 2, which also provides access to the Metro station.

Security checkpoints are located at either end of National Hall, directly off of the pedestrian bridges that connect the terminal to the parking garages and Metro station. Passengers do not need to re-clear security if they choose to move around and utilize facilities at another concourse; all piers are located after security. Once you proceed through security, you have access to the 4 piers stemming off of National Hall.

On level 2 outside of the entrances to the individual concourses, there is a huge selection of shops and restaurants that passengers can make use of before clearing security for their flight.

Gates B10 to B22

Alaska Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines operate from gates B10-B22 at the south end of National Hall. Once passengers have cleared central security in National Hall, and you walk into the concourse, gates B10, B11, B12, and B14 are to the right, along a passage with moving walkways, a United Club, a cafe, and a bar.

Straight ahead as you head into the concourse are gates B15 to B22, a Delta Sky Club, and a small selection of shops and eateries.

Gates C23 to C34

The concourse for gates C23 to C34 is situated off the center of the terminal, with flights operated by American Airlines and JetBlue.

An Admirals Club is located just after entering the pier, and the concourse has a good range of shops and restaurants.

American Airlines no longer runs a shuttle service between this concourse and gates D35 to D45 for passengers looking to connect. For connecting flights, you now need to walk from one pier to the next pier, but this shouldn’t take more than 5 to 10 minutes.

Gates D35 to D59

Gates D35 to D59 are located at the north end of the airport with only American Airlines operating from the 25 gates numbered D35 to D45 and E46 to E59.

Gates E46 to E59 are exclusively for regional flights, so you’ll only find flights with CRJ-700, CRJ-900, and ERJ-175 aircraft departing from here.

An Admirals Club is located on level 3 of the pier where gates D35 to D45 are, and there’s a good selection of shops and restaurants on level 2. There is also an Admirals Club across from E46.

Inter-Terminal Transport

Terminal Shuttle Bus (Outside the Secure Area)

Passengers can move between the terminals outside of the secure area by riding the terminal shuttle bus. Buses pick up and drop off on level 3 outside of National Hall and outside of the terminal building for where gates A1 to A9 are.

Walking

Gates A1 to A9 and B10 to E59 are connected via a walkway near the conference rooms in the old terminal to near the security checkpoint on the south end of National Hall. The walkway is outside of the secure area, so if you are connecting from Gates A1 to A9 and have a flight in the area of Gates B10 to E59, you will need to re-clear security.

Security and Customs at DCA

DCA has 3 security checkpoints — 1 for gates A1 to A9 and 2 for gates B10 to E59 in the National Hall.

The gates A1 to A9 checkpoint opens at 4:30 a.m. and the gates B10 to E59 checkpoints open at 4 a.m. All close at the last scheduled departure.

In the future, instead of these being situated at the entrance of each concourse, they will be re-positioned at the entrance of the National Hall so that ticketed passengers would be able to make use of the facilities without having to worry about leaving sufficient time to clear security.

TSA PreCheck

TSA PreCheck lanes are available at all 3 security checkpoints for eligible participants.

DCA has a TSA PreCheck Enrollment Center located in National Hall near baggage claim 6, open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Global Entry Program

DCA does not participate in Global Entry as the airport only has a limited number of international flights and immigration and customs are conducted at the point of origin.

Mobile Passport

Mobile Passport is also not accepted at DCA due to the limited number of international flights.

CLEAR

There are dedicated CLEAR security program kiosks at all 3 security checkpoints at DCA. These are available from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m with enrollment also possible at all security checkpoints.

A Hertz Fast Lane powered by CLEAR is also available at the Hertz rental car center and is open 24/7, although enrollment is not possible here.

There are 6 lounges currently available for passengers at DCA, with the 3 Admirals Clubs and United Club offering paid day pass access.

Final Thoughts

Recent developments have seen a new 14-gate commuter concourse (gates E46 to E59) open at the north of the airport that has replaced the cramped gate 35X. The new gate area offers an Admirals Club lounge and fantastic views of the city and its famous landmarks.

With most of the airport’s services now being after security, this will allow passengers to move between terminal piers much more easily, without having to re-clear security. The redesigned airport is completely different than it was before, but it makes Reagan a place where passengers can truly connect and have a world-class experience.
