Flights to Virginia

You can choose from many airports when you’re booking flights to Virginia, as there’s one near every major city. Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) is massive, and it’s the busiest airport around: almost 60,000 passengers go through each day. Your other option for the northern part of the state is Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), which handles a lower volume and a major hub for US Airways, which can help with finding cheap flights to Virginia.

The central and southern parts of the state are best reached by Richmond International Airport (RIC), while eastern Virginia is served by Norfolk International Airport (ORF.) Smaller regional airports are dotted around the state. If you’re flying from a major hub, you may be able to get direct flights right to your destination.
