Imagine the Dulles 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 although it is clearly here to stay, its full potential is by no means guaranteed. That’s our commitment.

The Committee for Dulles is a dynamic community of business leaders, policy makers and influential individuals. Founded in 1966, the Committee plays a pivotal role in making Dulles the premier air travel service provider for the national capital region and an economic feeder for the business community that surrounds it.

Our Mission

The Committee for Dulles supports and encourages the growth of Washington Dulles International Airport, and provides dynamic forums to educate the business community and individuals on the important role the airport plays in the region’s economy.

Our History

The Committee for Dulles, founded in 1966, is the oldest member-sponsored organization promoting the Washington Dulles International Airport. The Committee for Dulles is a dynamic nonprofit organization representing the interests of businesses and individuals in the vital growth and development of Washington Dulles International Airport and its immediate market area.

During its first quarter century, the Committee for Dulles played an active role in affecting the dramatic changes in the Dulles area. The Committee for Dulles has testified before Congress, the Virginia Assembly and other Federal, state, and county agencies on a host of issues vital to the interest of the Airport and to those who work and those who live in the surrounding area. The Committee has been influential in making Washington Dulles International Airport one of the world’s preeminent air facilities.

As the importance of the Airport and the Dulles region continues to expand, the work of the Committee has become increasingly significant. We look forward to continuing our work toward maintaining the Airport as the major economic generator of the region.
