Built on 10,000 acres in Loudoun and Fairfax Counties, Washington Dulles International Airport was dedicated and opened on November 17, 1962. Dulles is named after John Foster Dulles, the 52nd U.S. Secretary of State who served under President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The historic terminal is a well-known landmark designed by the late Eero Saarinen. Serving the Nation’s Capital, Dulles is connected to 40 capitals around the world and serves millions of travelers every year.
