Hey all,

Which airport is best to fly in to if final destination is Harpers Ferry, WV?

I was doing some research and found IAD is closest by an hour, but I thought BWI might be closer?

Any suggestions? Especially for traffic purposes?

Thanks!

IAD is definitely closer than BWI. Per google maps, IAD is 39.2 miles away from Harpers Ferry, WV.

Might fly in to IAD then, thanks!

I have to go there for work/training in the summer and when I heard it was in WV, I immediately thought of flying in to Charleston - but only to realize its almost a 5 hour drive from there!...LOL.

Amtrak stops on Harpers Ferry daily in both directions (east / west).

I think HGR might be closest, but not 100% sure.

For scheduled air service, that correct. Allegient Air connects Hagerstown to Orlando, and starting March 24th, Cape Air will connect Hagerstown to BWI.

Hagerstown is 25 miles northwest of Harper's Ferry.

However, assuming there no traffic, the drive from *either* BWI or IAD takes about 90 minutes.

IAD is closer, but requires you to go thorugh the mountains and down smaller roads. BWI will be completely interstate. Both are about the same time wise. I would base the decision on overall ticket cost and the carrier. Southwest would get you to BWI, etc. etc. I use to live in Winchester, VA and found that both are just as convenient.

Another option would be DCA. From there, you can take the Metro to Union Station then board a MARC train or Amtrak's Capitol Limited to Harper's Ferry.

Hagarstown, MD.

Dulles is also optional. It's not as far as people are saying.
