The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is planning to construct a new 14-gate concourse at Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia, US.

The new ‘Tier-2 Concourse (East)’ will replace the outdoor boarding areas, which are presently used for regional flights.

It will replace old gates at the eastern end of Concourse A, where passengers on regional flights have to go outdoors through covered walkways to board their planes.

The concourse will have access to the underground Aerotrain system of the airport. It will include new restaurants, shops and other customer services, along with the latest aircraft-servicing technologies for accommodating future needs.

The proposed 14-gate facility will provide larger seating areas, airline lounges, more concessions, ADA-compliant restrooms and other amenities.

It will upgrade aircraft service facilities and bring new conveniences and connectivity for travellers navigating the airport.

The Tier-2 Concourse (East) will provide larger operational areas for handling baggage, servicing aircraft and providing airline support functions.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority president and CEO Jack Potter said: “This new concourse would represent a major improvement in the passenger experience at the regional gates.

“The project is the first step in a long-term strategy to expand and enhance the facilities and services at Dulles International Airport as we look toward the future.”

The airport authority has submitted an application to secure $230m funding from the Federal Aviation Administration to begin construction on the project.

The new 400,000ft² facility is expected to entail an investment of $500m to $800m.

Furthermore, the Airports Authority is working with United Airlines, as well as other airlines, for the design, building and financing of the new concourse.

Last year, a new 14-gate concourse for regional flights was launched at Reagan National Airport.
