Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) is located in the communities of Dulles and Chantilly in Virginia, just 26 miles (41.6 km) west of downtown Washington DC. It is the largest airport in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Also, it is one of the nation's busiest airports with over 23 million passengers a year.

Airport Parking Garages

The Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) has 24,000 parking spaces at hourly, daily and economy rates. Note: cars parked in any parking lot or garage for more than 45 days will be towed at the owner's risk and expense.

Hourly Parking Lot

Hourly parking is available directly in front of the main airport terminal. Hourly parking is ideal if you are parking for only 2 hours or less. This area also has a section dedicated to Valet Parking Service. Yes, nothing beats having your car brought to you right at the terminal doorsteps after hours of flying. However, this option is not the most economical for many travellers.

Daily Parking Garage 1

Parking Garage 1 is located directly behind the Hourly Parking Lot and is connected to the main airport terminal via a y-shaped underground pedestrian walkway equipped with two moving sidewalk systems. It has a total capacity of 4,680 snsor-equipped parking bays and is also served by free airport shuttle service.
