Washington D.C.

Discover the ElJet Difference

Washington D.C

Power players and tourists alike flock to our nation’s capital to influence and experience the history of the United States. This compact and pristine city is home to spectacular memorials, monuments, museums and all three branches of our federal government. If you aren’t flying into Washington, DC on Air Force One, then consider the next best option, a private jet charter.

In contrast to many major U.S. cities, the commercial airport, Washington Dulles International Airport (KIAD), is the preferred airport for charter flights traveling to Washington, D.C. Although Ronald Reagan National Airport (KDCA) is the closest airport to the central business district of Washington, D.C., there are strict security regulations that make this airport less convenient.

  • Operators flying into KDCA require special authorization
  • Customers are required to go through TSA security scanners, similar to commercial flights
  • Only specific airports, called “gateway airports,” are authorized to conduct security screening, so flights must originate from a gateway airport – all of which are domestic with the exception of Bermuda and Bahamas
  • Departures are not supported 10pm-7am
  • Because of the heightened security measures fees into KDCA are higher


If flying into Ronald Reagan Airport is a must, ElJet can certainly facilitate your private charter, but we recommend our clients fly into Washington Dulles for a hassle-free charter flight experience.

Located in Chantilly, VA, 26 miles from downtown Washington, D.C., Washington Dulles International Airport feeds onto Dulles Access Road and allows arriving passengers to head directly into the city. You can step off your jet charter into a waiting car and be on your way to make your mark on the capitol.

For residents, Dulles International is a convenient departure and entry point for both the city and the Virginia suburbs surrounding D.C. including Great Falls, Fall Church, Fairfax, Wolf Trap, McLean and Arlington.

Freedom of choice rules in the U.S. of A. so if you prefer to avoid the commercial airport private jet charters can also use Leesburg Executive Airport (KJYO), an international airport located 35 miles to the northwest of downtown Washington, D.C. Manassas Regional Airport (KHEF) located 30 miles to the southwest of the city and just eight miles east of Loudon County, VA also accepts international and domestic charter flights.
