The Washington, DC area has three airports servicing the region (Baltimore Washington Airport-BWI, Washington Dulles International Airport-IAD, and Reagan National Airport-DCA). Because of the close proximity to Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), conference participants are encouraged to use this as an option for flights. The other airports are accessible to/from VIU, but are at a greater distance from the conference.
Information regarding IAD is provided here http://www.metwashairports.com/dulles/dulles.htm
All of the DC region airports offer ground transportation (car rentals and taxi services) and Super Shuttle. Super Shuttle offers door-to-door service from the airport to your final destination. Fares are usually around $35-40 for one-way travel to or from the airport, or $70-80 round-trip. Additional discounts can apply if traveling with more than one person.
For further information on traveling to and from the DC area by way of either Reagan National or Dulles International Airport please visit the Metro Washington Area Airport Authority Website at http://www.metwashairports.com.
