Connected. Involved. Effective. Imagine the Dulles Economic Corridor Without Dulles Airport. Dulles brings big business to Northern Virginia. It brings hundreds of thousands of tourists and other visitors every year. It brings people and products together. And it provides fast, convenient access to world markets.
Dulles International Airport is Northern Virginia’s economic lifeline and the members of the Committee for Dulles have recognized that for half a century. Although we know the airport is clearly here to stay, its full potential is by no means guaranteed. That is, and will continue to be, our commitment. This is additional content
Dulles Travelers Aid to Receive the Committee for Dulles’s “Tower of Dulles” Award
The Committee for Dulles has named Dulles Travelers Aid the 2019 recipient of its “Tower of Dulles” award. The honor is presented annually to individuals or organizations whose service provides for the betterment of Washington Dulles International Airport and the Dulles economic corridor.
Travelers Aid has been assisting passengers at Dulles since its opening in 1963. It opened with one desk at the Baggage Claim area and has since grown to 14 stations, positioned throughout the airport.
In keeping with the spirit of its mission, the volunteer-based organization has assisted countless Dulles customers by offering directions, information and general assistance to navigate the airport, parking and ground transportation, as well as providing information on the metropolitan DC area. In many cases, the volunteers and Travelers Aid staff have gone above and beyond to aid and comfort to those who may find themselves in a time of stress from traveling and in an unknown environment.
The Tower of Dulles award has been awarded since 1997. It will be presented at the Committee for Dulles’
annual gala on November 15, 2019.
The Committee for Dulles is a dynamic community of business leaders, policy makers, and individuals committed to the goal of supporting the Washington Dulles International Airport as a premier air travel service provider and economic feeder for the business community that surrounds it. The Committee’s activities include lunchtime presentations with keynote speakers on a variety of topics, economic development talks, and a Community Outreach subcommittee that has raised funds for scholarships and grants to nonprofit organizations that support the Dulles community.
Celebrating 50 Years
The Committee for Dulles was founded in 1966, four years after the opening of Washington Dulles International Airport. In 2016, we celebrated 50 years of dedication to the growth and success of our airports. The year-long celebration culminated in the Celebrate Dulles gala on November 11, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Dulles.
The 50th Anniversary Subcommittee presented a power point highlighting the past 50 years of CFD history at the monthly luncheon.
