AeroTrain has been in operation at Washington Dulles International Airport since 2010. Automated trains move passengers between the Terminal and the midfield gates for domestic and international departing flights and domestic arriving flights. Passengers arriving on most international flights will not ride the AeroTrain because they must first clear U.S. customs. The Terminal station is located just beyond the TSA security screening checkpoints.


  • Less than two minute travel time between stations
  • Train speeds up to 42 miles per hour
  • Express, underground transit between stations
  • The system is expandable to two full AeroTrain loops as the airport grows
