Reagan National Airport Parking Expected to Be Heavily Used Over the Holiday Week

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is expecting heavy travel during the upcoming holiday period and is urging passengers or those meeting them to call ahead to check on the status of available parking at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

Based on figures compiled last year, parking garages and lots are expected to be heavily used beginning as early as this weekend April 7th and peaking mid-week April 11th.

A 24-hour parking information line is staffed to provide current status of available spaces. That number is 703-417-PARK or 703- 417-7275.

Travelers may also want to consider using Metro as an easy alternative to driving and parking at the Airport over this holiday period. Other alternatives include the Washington Flyer express bus service, or the SuperShuttle.
