Traveling from Washington DC to Riyadh

The Best DC Airports

Before you call airlines looking for flights from Washington, DC, you should check with Orbitz.com. The two major airports in DC are Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Alaska Airlines, US Airways, and Frontier Airlines handle domestic flights from Ronald Reagan, while Virgin America, ExpressJet Airlines, and Colgan Air operate out of Washington Dulles. Ronald Reagan is only three miles from the downtown area, and Washington Dulles is 26 miles from downtown.

Long-Term Parking Options

The five parking lots at Ronald Reagan offer daily and hourly parking rates, and the airport charges $20 per day for parking in the long-term lots. The economy lot only charges $12 per day, but this lot is open and uncovered. Washington Dulles has two long-term parking lots that charge $17 per day and one economy lot that charges $10 per day. For $30, you can use valet parking.

Public Transportation Choices

The Metrorail and Metrobus make at least one stop at each airport every day. The stops are clearly marked around the city, and you can find maps that help you find the correct line. Taxis are not as low cost as the public transportation options because the drivers charge a pickup fee, baggage fee, fee per mile, and a fee for any time that the driver must wait.

Places to Eat

Both airports offer a range of dining options. Washington Dulles is home to Dulles to Go, Five Guys, Subway, and Wendy's, while Ronald Reagan has Dunkin' Donuts, Euro Cafe, and Jerry's Subs & Pizza. Once you have something to eat, you can browse through the sales at some of the shops surrounding the restaurants.

Flights to Riyadh

Riyadh offers a vacation paradise and the best in modern business amenities for travelers. Orbitz.com can help you find options for flights to Riyadh to match any budget.

Getting Around in the City

Drivers in the city often haggle with customers, especially on longer trips such as the ride from the airport, and patrons can expect to pay $15 or more for airport-to-city service. Buses run on half-hour schedules between the city and airport, and travelers typically pay less than $1 each way for this service. Few express options are available, however, and bus travel may take from 30 minutes to an hour, which is up to twice as long as taxi travel.

Travelers in the winter months should pack a heavy coat and expect cold winds to blow through the city streets. Summer travelers should dress in light fabrics that will keep them cool in the windy climate. Rain primarily falls in the months of March and April.
