 Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (IATA: DCA, ICAO: KDCA) in Arlington County, Virginia is the closest commercial airport to Washington, D.C. Originally Washington National Airport, it was renamed after former President Ronald Reagan in 1998.
Its original name remains on the stone facade of the historic terminal (Terminal A), and it is still widely known as "National" or "Washington National" (particularly in the DC area), although the formulation "Reagan National" has gained currency.
Indeed, the Washington Metro system initially resisted renaming its station serving the airport, citing a policy adopted in 1987 that states that groups seeking to rename a station were required to pay the cost of replacing signage.
