Washington Dulles International Airport Terminal Information

Designed by Eero Saarinen and officially opened in 1962 the main terminal was only actually completed in 1996, after airport authorities had decided to expand the building according to the architect's original plans.
The main terminal serves many airlines and a large number of destinations. It has a variety of restaurants, bars, newsstands and shops. Business services, currency exchange services and ATMs (cash machines) are also available.

To get to and from airplanes passengers use planemates (essentially, large buses), mobile lounges (another type of large bus), and concourse buildings that stand independently in midfield. These concourses do provide some types of passenger services, such as cafes, restaurants etc.
