Gigneil,

United Express used to fly from IAD to BWI but not anymore. I would say the shortes flight from IAD might be to Harrisburgh, PA on United Express. United says that flight is only 83 miles on there website. Maybe the United Express flight to Richmond is shorter.

The shortest flights from IAD are all operated by United Express and will probably be expensive because none are on the July route system of Independence Air:

OAG schedules is the source:

Charlottesville VA (CHO) is 78 miles
Harrisburg PA (MDT) is 91 miles
Richmond VA (RIC) is 100 miles
State College PA (SCE) is 127 miles
Philadelphia PA (PHL) is 134 miles

Independence Air has really shaken up the fares, best to check flyi.com for up to date fares and dates of service introduction.

I once checked the fare from BWI to IAD and I remember it being quite expensive but then again, most short hop commuter flight are expensive if they aren't part of a connection. Although strange, it did make sense from those in the Baltimore area who were needing to make connections to UALs IAD hub.

Boo yah Charlottesville. You definitely won't find a cheap fare r/t there though. Agreed with DCAYOW; look for routes where IAir competes with UA (i.e. not IAD-CHO-IAD).

Currently the cheapest destinations from IAD are Chicago, Charleston (WV), Norfolk, and Pittsburgh. Each is currently selling for $83RT, on a good selection of airlines (depending on the destination).
