Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (IATA: DCA, ICAO: KDCA, FAA LID: DCA) is an airport in Arlington, Virginia that acts as the primary airport serving Washington, D.C. For decades it was called Washington National Airport before being renamed to honor President Ronald Reagan in 1998. It is the nearest commercial airport to the capital in the county of Arlington, Virginia, 5 miles (10 km) south of Downtown Washington. The airport opened June 16, 1941, just before US involvement into World War II. The Washington National Airport Terminal and South Hangar Line were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. Reagan National is a fortress hub for American Airlines which operates near-hourly air shuttle flights. Other than 40 slot exemptions, flights into and out of the airport are not allowed to exceed 1,250 nautical miles (2,320 km; 1,440 mi) in any direction nonstop, in an effort to send coast-to-coast and overseas traffic to the larger but more distant Washington Dulles International Airport.
