New Routes Further Expand Airport’s Position as International Gateway
Washington Dulles International Airport is welcoming new non-stop service from LAN Peru and Air Canada.
Monday the National Capital region gained new nonstop access to Lima, Peru, and Toronto through Washington Dulles International Airport.
LAN Peru began nonstop service with three flights per week - Monday, Thursday and Sunday - from Washington Dulles to Lima. LAN Peru is the only airline offering nonstop capital to capital flights from Washington, D.C., and Lima.
Air Canada also began new service, operating three flights daily between Dulles International Airport and Toronto Pearson Airport.
“The addition of LAN Peru and Air Canada to the international route offerings at Washington Dulles provides great travel options for our passengers. These new routes from the National Capital region better connect Washington, D.C., to Lima and to Toronto through the international gateway at Dulles International Airport,” said Dulles International Airport Manager Christopher U. Browne.
The addition of these new routes continues to strengthen Washington Dulles’ position as the region’s international gateway with more than 120 destinations in 51 countries.
