Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport turns 75 on June 16, and the party is already underway – with promotions, giveaways, pre-security performances and a special historic aircraft arrival.
In honor of the airport’s founding in 1941, restaurants across the airport are offering “First Class Meal Deal” specials for $19.41 and, as part of a ‘gift with purchase’ promotion, anyone who spends $100 in combined food and retail purchases at the airport can get a free, vintage-style travel bag.
On Reagan National’s actual anniversary, June 16, passengers on the 75th arriving flight will be treated to music and dance performances and a giveaway at the gate.
The airport will also host the Aero Club of Washington for a lunch on June 16 in the Historic Lobby—the original ticketing area of the airport when it opened—with remarks from Doug Parker, President and CEO of American Airlines.
But wait – there’s more!
Flagship Detroit, a restored, American Airlines DC-3 aircraft and the same model that opened National Airport 75 years ago will arrive on Wednesday evening, June 15, for display at the Aero Club Lunch.
A full listing of events and promotions is on the DCA website and more details (and giveaways) are already flying on the airport’s Twitter feed.
