Departures And Arrivals At DCA

Mon Jul 19, 2004 10:04 pm

Does anyone know how many departures there are at DCA and how many arrivals there are per day? Does it vary during the week? How many arrivals and departures on the weekend? Any ideas?

Reagan National had 250,800 flight operations in 2003.

DCA's rule limits the number of landings and takeoffs to 62 per hour.

That equates to about 687 operations per day. An operation is either a takeoff or a landing, and since takeoffs should approximately equal landings, that would be about 343-344 of each per day.

Since General Aviation is prohibited from using DCA, virtually all of these would be airline operations.
