This report presents results of an analysis of the Metropolitan Washington Airports undertaken by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to establish the appropriate role of Washington National and Dulles International Airports within the Metropolitan Washington area. The report is intended to guide future development and operation of these facilities. A wide range of policy options defining various roles for the Metropolitan Airports are tested and evaluated. Quotas, curfews, and the possible wide-body aircraft service at National Airport are examined for potential policy impacts on regional air travelers, community residents, and airport investment requirements.
