For Wikipedia is not always true, I would appreciate some help in finding carriers with previous service to Dulles. I know the obvious ones, such as Independence Air (before they collapsed), Alitalia, and BMI, but I am pretty oblivious to some others. Have there ever been any Eastern European carriers (besides Turkish, when operates now)? Any help would be fantastic. Thanks!


I want a 787 for Christmas, thank you.

BWIA...(now Caribbean Airlines)...used to fly POS-IAD and POS-TAB-IAD I believe.

There are rumours of BW resuming service possibly in 2012.

I was going to say Ghana Airways.

But that was BWI, not IAD!


How about VIASA, the old Venezuelan airline?

Wasn't that USAfrica an M11? Didn't that have an enroute fueling stop? I thought so, but can't remember where.

Air Canada Jazz used to operate YOW-IAD and YUL-IAD. Those were terminated in early 2011. Now all Air Canada/Jazz flights to Washington operate to DCA.

Alaska (AS) to Seattle. The flight was a red-eye from Seattle with an early morning return back to Seattle. I believe it operated from the C councourse. Service ended in 2005.

How long did the AI service last?

Also, Ozark flew into IAD back in the late 60s to the mid to late 70s, before it moved to BWI.

Didn't Western serve IAD at one time? Also didn't they tag DCA with that at one time or another?

Back in 2001 Air Jamaica once announced IAD-MBJ...not sure if that ever happened though.

Qantas also did IAD to SYD via LAX, I believe...

PEOPLExpress used to fly IAD-EWR and IAD-MIA back in the mid-1980's. Fares to EWR were as low as $19 on some flights and as low as $49 on the MIA flights.

Western operated SLC-IAD-DCA to get around the perimeter restrictions at DCA.

America West also did something similar, operating DCA to places like OMA, DSM and CMH.

Yes, I do remember AS serving both DCA and IAD back then. I presume they dropped IAD the moment they got the beyond-perimeter slot for a second daily SEA-DCA service.

Another domestic carrier that served IAD was the ill-fated N7 (to LAS).

Let's not forget that FL will soon join this list, when their IAD-ATL flights are terminated next summer.
