More than 1,600 International Delegates Expected in D.C. Delegates arriving in the USA’s capital city will have two major ports of entry to Washington, D.C. this weekend: (1) Dulles International Airport (IAD), which straddles the border between Loudon and Fairfax counties in Northern Virginia and is about 26 miles (or 42 kilometers—the distance of a marathon) from downtown Washington; and (2) Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) across the Potomac River from the city in Arlington, Va. Most IPW hotels and the convention center are within five miles of this airport. While Reagan Washington National receives no long-haul international traffic, a number of delegates will be connecting to it from U.S. gateway airports.
Complimentary transportation from Dulles International Airport and Reagan Washington National Airport to official IPW Host Hotels will be available on Friday and Saturday, June 2-3, from 9:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m., and on Sunday, June 4, from 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA): From the baggage claim area (Terminals A, B, or C), please proceed to the outside curb where you will board IPW shuttles.
Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD): From the baggage claim area, please proceed up the ramp and out of Door #4 where you will board IPW shuttles.
Look for Washington, DC volunteers in teal shirts who can direct you to the exclusive IPW Welcome Lounge before boarding the IPW shuttle.
NOTE: The Inbound Report will not be published next week; we’ll be in Washington, D.C., covering IPW. Our next publishing date is June 15th.
