DC is a hotspot for air travel

Whether it's for business or pleasure, air travel is an important part of many Americans' lives. However, finding convenient plane rides is not always easy - in addition to being expensive, it can sometimes be difficult to book a non-stop flight. However, one of the advantages of living in a highly populated and frequently visited city is that flights are often a lot easier to come by. People who own real estate in Washington, DC, will find their metro is especially amenable to this form of transportation.

America's capital is home to several of the country's busiest airports, including Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Washington National Airport (DCA), also known as Reagan. Because of this, the region has a large variety of flights arriving and departing each day. In fact, US Airways recently announced five new communities will now have non-stop service to and from DCA.

The newly added cities - Augusta, Georgia; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Fayetteville, Arkansas, as well as Montreal and Toronto, Canada - demonstrate that DC is one of the country's prime destinations.

"Our new service to Reagan National Airport shows our commitment to connect communities of all sizes to our nation's capital," said Andrew Nocella, one of the airline's senior vice presidents.
