Cheap flights from San Francisco to Washington DC

Say farewell to foggy San Fran and hello to the nation's capital. Dulles International Airport (IAD) sits just outside Washington, D.C., and is a popular port of call for both business travelers and those looking for fun, who are destined for the D.C. metropolitan area.

Whether you're in the area for a while or just a few hours on a layover, you can shop at Reston Town Center, stroll around Frying Pan Park, or browse aeronautical history at the nearby Air and Space Museum. You’ll find all of these attractions are conveniently located within minutes of the airport.

Key Facts

Dulles International Airport is situated on Route 28, and is within easy driving distance of Leesburg, Reston, Chantilly and Centreville. Travelers looking to explore the Washington D.C. area by rental car can use the nearby 395 to 495 "Mixing Bowl" to get around. The Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum is just a quick ride from the airport, and is ideal way to fill a rainy afternoon.

Hints and Tips

The flight between San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Dulles takes about five and a half hours in total. You'll arrive at a concourse separate from the main terminal. If this is your final destination, take the shuttle bus to the main terminal and make your way to the lower-level baggage claim.
